However, if one will study for short durations with concentration then he or she can easily score well in CBSE Class 12 board exams.

Aditya told the interviewer that he used to set a target for every day and every night he checked whether he had finished that target or not. Aditya used to study 5 - 6 hours besides tuitions and school.

Students who are not in a habit to study for long hours can take small breaks while studying. The most important thing is whatever you study must study with concentration.

(2) Solve as many sample papers as you can:

The 2nd topper of CBSE Class 12 board exam 2017, Bhumi Sawant pointed out that she faced a lot of problems while preparing for CBSE Class 12 board exam 2017. But, with the support of parents and help of teachers, things became easy.

She had solved a lot of CBSE sample papers and practice papers before the exams. After solving sample papers she was quite sure about her success. According to her, she was quite sure that she will score above 95% marks but didn’t expect 99.4% marks.

Practice is the key to success. No matter how much you study, you can’t score well in board exam until and unless you have not practiced with pen and paper before appearing for the exam. Therefore, it is important that you must solve as many sample papers as you can before appearing for the actual exam.

(3) Solve Previous Year Board Exam Papers (at least 10 years)

During an interview, UP Board Class 12th topper (2016 board exam) Somuya Patel told the interviewer that solving previous year papers boosted her level of preparation.

When you will go through previous year papers, you will find that some concepts are frequently asked in board exams, every year.

You need to track such important concepts from every chapter and go through them as they might be asked again in 2018 board exam.

If students are lucky then they may get the exact same question in 2018 board exam from previous year papers. Therefore, besides sample paper, students should also solve previous years’ papers.

(4) Revision is extremely important

Most of the board exam toppers lay special emphasis on revision. After you study or learn any topic it is important that you must revise that topic frequently.
