ICSE Semester 2 exam 2022: How to be at optimum level amid approaching exams


New Delhi: ICSE Semester 2 exam 2022 will commence from April 25. Students have started gearing up for their preparation. However, now is not the time to worry, but to think and be reminded how prepared you are and where you have fallen behind.

It is usual that students fell prey of anxiety and stress due to non-completion of syllabus. Therefore, they need to plan strategy to complete syllabus with free-mind. Check out the resources below.

Step 1: Make sure you’re in good physical and mental health.

Following a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, listening to music for positive energy and a clear mind, and practising meditation to relieve stress can help achieving physical and mental fitness.  Believe it or not, eating dark chocolate containing more than 70% cocoa fights the exam stress hormone cortisol and has an overall relaxing effect on the body. Furthermore, chocolate releases endorphins, which are natural stress relievers.

Step 2: Use your time wisely.

A timetable should be prepared and followed since it helps in good time management. You should work in a calm area with less distractions. When you’re tired or bored, it’s also necessary to take a rest in between. Plan how much time a subject should get based on its syllabus and difficulty.

Step 3: Study the textbooks thoroughly

Make sure you are well versed with each and every concept and topic in your NCERT textbook as the material they contain forms the basis for not only board exams but also competitive exams like JEE. Always follow mind maps and maintain running notes for quick revision or a last-minute overall glimpse. Do not ignore diagrams, tables or graphs as questions can be asked from any section, especially for Term-2 paper.

Step 4: Solve more questions through a question bank

Solving some standard sample papers will boost your confidence in your board. Which will help in improving your speed and accuracy. You will also be able to understand the time limit, what kind of questions will be expected in the exam and prepare accordingly. Work on your weak areas. With regular practice their mistakes are reduced and they solve the questions to get the correct answers.
