There are many books, study materials and guidebooks to which you can refer while preparing for the exam. But you should make a habit to jot down important points and information while attending any class or going through any chapter. This makes things a lot easier for you when you have a very short time to prepare for the board exam. This helps as a reference note which is way more effective than any other reference books and guidebooks.
3. Revise Rigorously:
Covering important topics is not enough, revise those important chapters and questions thoroughly to learn them well. It will be easier for you to revise if you will keep your notes ready and handy. Try to gradually minimise the use of the notes and use them only when it is very much necessary to refer. Set a particular time to study according to your own convenience when you think you can concentrate well. This way you can easily master tough subjects like maths, physics and chemistry.
4. Give Mock Tests:
