          · Unit-wise marks weightage

Let’s first understand the units and marks distribution of the major subjects in Term 1 exams.

For Maths, we have 7 units- Number Systems (6), Algebra (10), Coordinate Geometry (6), Geometry (6), Trigonometry (5), Mensuration (4), Statistics & Probability (3).

          · Daily time schedule

Many classmates and teachers can suggest “perfect” timetables. Though, the best hours to study are different for every student- some are night owls and some are early risers, some grasp quickly and some do not have a great memory. So before preparing your timetable, you need to figure out your own strengths and weaknesses. Give more time to topics you personally find difficult. Keep time slots to relax and rejuvenate. Take a 5 minute break every hour. Stick to the timetable to ensure that you are not overburdened right before the exam.

Here’s a suggestion to plan your Maths units- Keep aside a couple of hours every day. Dedicate 4 days each to easy chapters like Real Numbers, Probability, Area Related To Circles and Coordinate Geometry. For lengthy chapters, like Ploynomial, Linear Equations, Triangles and Intro to Trigonometry, you can keep 7 days each.

Likewise daily chapter-wise schedule can be pre-planned for CBSE Class 10 MCQ Based Science, Social Science, Maths, English Board Exams For Term 1 2021-22
