There are certain power tips that every student must consider ensuring that there is no anxiety created towards appearing for the Boards. These can be broadly divided into:

1. Months leading to the examination;

During this period, one must ensure they have:
Time -Table:
One must create an elaborate time-table for the portions to be adequately covered, clearly marking certain days/time-slots against each subject and further sub-topics under each subject. This will give students the confidence that to the best extent all the portions for the exams have been covered;
Time Management and Writing:
Time management is one of the key lessons that one must imbibe well into the preparations of appearing for the boards. Time management with respect to the allocation of time for sub-topics as well as completion of the same will greatly help in covering the syllabus and ensuring the student is on top of their game. No matter how much knowledge one possesses, the same will be worthless if not put on paper in the right manner and hence students are advised to always practice all they have learned in writing so as to make one aware of their content, their precision and the amount of time they will require to complete a segment of the question paper. This assessment will greatly help as all board exams have a time limit and practicing such techniques will put the student at ease during the main board exam.
Ample Amounts of rest:
This preparation is the most important of all. Students are not machines and adequate amounts of rest are required to truly absorb all the knowledge that one is learning during the preparation time. Between running around for mock tests, books, classes, and extra classes, it is very easy to forget to take care of one’s health. Therefore, the focus must be given to not only the physical body but also the mental state of mind. Practicing yoga and meditation will help strengthen mental capacity while also providing a holistic sense of preparation.

2.Days/ weeks leading to the examination.

· Exercise once a day so as to rejuvenate the body and channelize any prevailing anxiety;
· This is no time for adding any new information, this is only the time to revise and relax, one must only focus on preparing the mind mentally for the coming examination;
· Meet with friends and socialize. This will completely reduce the mental stress one might ensure during this time and put the student at ease;
· Know that this is not the end-all of everything and not focus too much on the results.
