Class 10 science is extensive yet straightforward and with proper strategy and study plan, you can easily score 80/80. You just need to divide your strategies according to Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. This is one of the top tips recommended by toppers.
Here are few general tips for science:
- Read all chapters from NCERT thoroughly. There is no need to refer to other sources. The theory mentioned in the NCERT is sufficient for your exam.
- Make notes of definitions and key points while reading the chapter and next time revise from those notes.
- Keep separate notebooks for different subjects.
- Give equal importance to all three subjects. Avoid focusing on just one or two.
- Analyze your weak points and work on them rather than ignoring them so that these topics do not haunt you in the end.
- Refer to Vedantu class 10 science solutions to check the answers of each question in the NCERT science textbook.
Let us divide science into three subjects and then discuss their strategy accordingly:
- Here is the list of all the physics chapters in your syllabus
|Light-Reflection and Refraction
|The Human Eye And The Colourful World
|Magnetic Effects Of Electric Current
|Sources Of Energy
|Management of Natural Resources
- Make a chapter-wise list of all the formulae and revise them at regular intervals. You can even stick the list on your room walls so it is easier to revise.
- Draw all the ray diagrams on blank sheets and refer to them while practising diagrams.
Write all the points regarding the nature and position of the image, nature, and position of an object on the same sheet and divide the ray diagram according to the type of mirror, so that it becomes more convenient while revising.
- In the chapter “Magnetic Effects Of Electric Current”, learn all the hand rules and tricks.
- For the Sources and Energy chapter, try to curate all the bullet points and the diagram.
- For the numerical problems, focus on the exercises given at the end of every chapter and in-text questions from the NCERT textbook. Also, practice previous year question papers.
- Here is the list of all the Biology chapters in your syllabus –
|Control and Coordination
|How Do Organisms Reproduce?
|Heredity and Evolution
|Management of Natural Resources
- Biology is all about understanding and learning everything by heart. Make notes from your NCERT book in a separate notebook and while revising, do not just read them. Every time you revise, write all the points repeatedly for 3-4 times. Then, start writing only bullet points once you learn all the things in detail.
- Draw neat and clean diagrams on a blank sheet. Do not forget to label the diagram every time you practice.
- A neat and clean diagram will attract examiners and in turn, will fetch you good marks. So every time you practice, always make a well-structured diagram. This will save a lot of time during the examination.
- In the exam, try writing in bullet points for very long-answer questions. This will help you present your answer in a more organized manner. This is especially important in biology where you have to write different processes and organize your answer to impress the examiner.
- Here is the list of all the Chemistry chapters in your syllabus:
|Chemical Reactions and Equations
|Acids, Bases, and Salts
|Metals and Non-metals
|Carbon and its Compounds
|Periodic Classification of Elements
- In chemistry, you need to learn atomic numbers, atomic masses, and the symbols of the first 20 elements of the periodic table. This can be made easy if you try learning them using mnemonics methods. You can easily find out any song or mnemonic on the internet but remember to stick only to one method otherwise you may get confused. Choose one, write it separately and keep revising that. Do not go for new methods, every time you revise the periodic table.
- Practice only those equations which are mentioned in the NCERT textbook. Write them in a separate notebook and practice from that once or twice a week.
- Make notes of every chapter and try to write them precisely. Notes should be on point and you should write them the way you would in the exam. Leave proper space in the equations. Do not write too close or far. Maintain proper gaps.
- Don’t forget to write the names of the reactants and products below the chemical reactions. Learn them as well. For a better presentation, draw boxes around the chemical equations, after you finish answering everything.
Here are some points that you can keep in mind while you are writing your examination:
- Utilize your reading time wisely. Mark all the questions you know and attempt them first.
- In case you are attempting a diagram-based question, draw the diagram first and then answer the question. This way, you will quickly recall the main points of your answer and write faster.
- After you complete writing the paper, verify that all the diagrams are well-labelled. If you forget the label of any part of the diagram, do not waste your time and move on to the next question. You can put a mark on your question paper that the answer is incomplete. After completing your answers, revisit that diagram and then try to recall the label.
- Underline all the main points.
- For one-mark questions, check whether you have written the correct answer against the question number. Follow this step for other questions as well. Sometimes, your answer may be correct but you might have written the wrong question number against that answer. Avoid these silly mistakes.
Try to execute these small yet effective steps as much as possible. Using these tips and tricks, you can surely ace your science examination without any stress!!
