• Focus on basics

Before jumping straight upon to complex reference books, focus on NCERT. NCERT is the bible for the students appearing for school examinations. It is believed that 80-85% of the exam is based on NCERT. Don't try to solve questions in your mind or think that if you read a question once, you can solve it in the exam too, write and solve every question. Go through NCERT thoroughly so that every question gets engraved in your mind. Make sure to keep a very strong grip on formulas and solve every question and miscellaneous exercise of NCERT at least 3-4 times. Don't try to cram maths, you will only end up making more mistakes. 


• Practice, Practice and Practice

"Practice makes a man perfect" is the quote which should justify your study strategy in a line. After practising NCERT thoroughly, solve previous year papers and try to understand the concept and format of the exam. Practice solved answer questions from exemplar or other reference books prescribed by your teacher or tutor. Even if you think that the chapter is too easy for you or it is not a scoring chapter, practice and solve every single question even if it is a simple one. Practice as much as you can so that if you get a question in your exam which you have already solved before, you can save your time in brainstorming on how to solve that question. 


• Test your knowledge

Along with solving previous year exams, test your knowledge by mock tests made by your teacher or tutor. Join test series started by your coaching so that it can maintain your regularity of studying every day. Another big benefit of going on with test series is when you solve NCERT questions then it is formula-wise and your mind approach is single way that this whole exercise will be based on a single formula. In a test, there are mixed questions of different chapters with different formulas which changes the way your mind approach after seeing a question. This will help you to brainstorm which formula will solve that particular question.
