Examination Preparation Strategy for CBSE Physics Examination
by Dr. Mukesh Shrimali
BEST Wishes for CBSE -2019 Examination.
Have Control- Have Patience- Have Confidence == 100% Success
The winner knows that the last lap in any marathon is the most important and now as we enter into the last lap, just take care of the following points and success will be waiting for you at the next step.
Tips to get maximum marks in Physics examination: Course Completion strategy
Strategy Plan for 2nd March:
- Take sound sleep for 3 hrs after your English examination.
- Start study at 6.00 PM with soft or easy units first such as Atom, Dual, Nuclei, and Communication. (Time in Hrs 2 +1+ 2+1 respectively) (Marks 10+5) =15. You can easily attempt questions from these units.
- Please go through NCERT solved examples, gray problems, diagrams, Graphs and unsolved problems (you can omit additional). Don’t try anything new.
Strategy Plan for 3rd March:
- Morning 8 wake-up call; take light breakfast.
- Start with Magnetic effect of Current (1.30 hrs )
- Then Ray optics (1.30 hrs )
- Then Semi-conductor (1.30 hrs )
- 12:30 PM to 1.00 PM take rest. Energize your mind again.
- Start with Electrostatics and capacitor (2 hrs )
- Take proper lunch and try to get sleep for 1 hr
- Be as calm as possible, don’t be in a hurry.
- Have Faith in yourself.
- Be Very focused, don’t do unnecessary topics, you have Board Examination, not IIT or NEET.
- 4.00 to 5.30 PM do EMI and AC.
- 5.30 to 7.00 PM do Current Electricity
- Give time to each unit. You know you can give 4 months to electrostatics but here we have only 12 hrs.
- Set short term goal such as the goal for next 2 hrs., 30 mins, one unit.
- Dinner time 7.00 to 7.30 PM.
- 7.30 to 9.00 Wave optics
- 9.00 PM to 10.00 PM Magnetism
- 10.00 pm to 10.30 EMW.
- Only one book at a time, say Exam Idea then only Exam Idea. However, do go through NCERT first.
- Have rest pauses as required
- Don’t miss to check all graphs, diagrams and special topics ( Blue Boxes) from NCERT.
- Practice all derivations exclusively. Don’t try any new method for derivation use your own short notes for revision. Always decide the priority of topics for revision.
- 10% conceptual, 20% numerals, 10% definitions, 50% derivation to check understanding and applications and last 10% high order thinking skills.
- Don’t be confused & in mess. Keep self – control and self- restraint. Be firm in which direction you are going.
- Keep an alarm clock in handy always to know how much time you spent reading and at what time you wake up. Take regular breaks during a change of units, follow the schedule/time table to cover each unit.
- Be confident to keep your goal in front of your eyes and feet firm on the ground. you are the winner. No tension. No fear. No phobia. This is all in the mind and not in reality. Be confident, throw away the fear and arm yourself with the sword of knowledge.
Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning, loyalty and persistence. If you can dream it you can achieve it. It’s going to be hard but hard does not mean impossible – Dr. Mukesh Shrimali
Strategy Plan for 4th March:
- Wake-up Call at 8:00 AM.
- 8:30 to 10:30 Revise most important Derivations. Practice diagrams and labeling 35 marks will be straight from derivations, diagrams, and graphs.
- 11:00 to 2:00 Do fast revision of top priority topics. In this revision, you need to check if you have left or by mistake ignored any of the important topics such as Gauss’s Theorem, Electric dipole, parallel plate capacitor,
potentiometer, wheat stone bridge, and MB, Kirchhoff law, ACL -solenoid and toroid, cyclotron, Magnetic field on axis of circular coil, Force between two parallel current carrying conductors, MCG, Motional emf, self and
mutual inductance, LCR circuit, transformer, Resonance, Power in AC circuit, Displacement current.
- The astronomical telescope, microscope, lens makers formula, Prism, a combination of lens, TIR, refraction at a spherical refracting surface, resolving power, Huyghen principal reflection, and refraction, coherent sources of light, Young’s experiment, fringe width, condition of constructive and destructive interferences, diffraction, malus law, rotation of third polaroid between other two, Brewster’s law, Method of polarization, Gold foil experiment, distance of closest approach , Bohr postulates, expression of r, v, E, frequency and wavelength, Spectral analysis.
- To be continued, study Einstein equation, Lenard experiment, graphical results, planks constant, de Broglie wavelength, the average mass of the nucleus, BE curve, Nuclear force, Graph between potential energy and separation between nucleons, half-life, average life, N= N0 e – λt , Q value fission, and fusion. PN junction, rectifier, logic gates, transistors, Zener and photodiode, LED, Block diagrams of communication systems, transmitter, receiver, modulation, demodulation, important terms, ground wave sky wave and space wave, the height of TV antenna, LOS and need of modulations.
- Take light lunch and rest for 1 hr.
- 4.00 PM to 6.00 PM just go through solved CBSE numerical examples of major units, have confidence. Problems generally come from Ray optics, Logic Gates, de Broglie wavelength, fringe width and position of maxima and minima, Gauss theorem, MF of circular coil, AC – impedance, resonance, phasor, power, Wheatstone bridge, potentiometer, Internal resistance, combination of lenses, Prism, half-life, LOS, modulation index, motional emf, energy of capacitor, resistance, ACL, Lorentz force, transistor.
- 7.00 to 9.00 pm be relaxed, you did a lot of work since the last two days, just read conceptual questions for better understanding mainly of EMW, Potentiometer, Young’s double slit, nuclei, communication, magnetic effect and capacitor such as effect of capacitance when battery remain connected or disconnected and when we add medium between its plates etc.
- Just go through the syllabus one more time just to be sure and then do whatever you want. Best wishes for the Exam.
