3 About this unit Exams may be anxiety provoking for some students. They may worry about an exam for days before it is to take place and/or during the exam, when tackling the examination they may experience negative thoughts and unpleasant physical symptoms which prevent them from performing to the best of their ability. It is wise to remember that exams are not there as punishment. Instead, they are a good way of testing to see how much information you have learnt. Examinations test a student's knowledge and understanding of a particular subject. They bring questions from an entire module together in a challenging environment. Exams value their memories, skills and ability to understand what they are studying. They make them prepare before hand.they also force students to be specific and focused, as time is limited in most exams. Remember that there are NO Short Cuts to Success People learn in different ways, some of the advice is contradictory. Use whatever works for you; discard the rest." OBJECTIVES : Teachers will be able to Explore Effective Preparation Techniques and will Prepare students more effectively for exams MATERIAL REQUIRED Curriculum by CBSE Sample Question Papers Power Point Presentations Questionnaire Activity Sheets Computer Unit Projector

5 Session 1 Module 1. Knowing about the Examination system Aim & Objectives To make teachers aware of the Examination Scheme, To make them aware of the Curriculum given by CBSE To make them aware of the about the CBSE website to get the latest information regarding their subjects. To make them aware how a student can know about the obstacles to Academic Success. Activity 1 : Tentative Questions for discussion How will you come to know about the scheme of Exam? If this scheme of Exam will be helpful to you in guiding the students? What do you mean by curriculum? Should we make our students aware of the curriculum of the different subjects they are studying? How will you update yourself regarding Examination system? Why students fear exams? How the fear of exam affect the health of the students? Activity 2 : Ask the participant to search for the CBSE website Ask them to Download the latest CBSE curriculum Ask them to download sample Question Papers and Marking Schemes Activity 3 : Discussion about the questionnaire regarding obstacles to Academic Success

6 Detail of the content Typically, exam preparation means revision of concepts and solving model papers. But, that s not all. Teachers can use many other strategies to help and support students. He / She must have the complete knowledge of scheme of Examination, Curriculum and other information given by the board in the form of Circular. 1. Scheme of examinations He/She should know about the Scheme of examinations and pass criteria, so that he could guide the students in right way. They can get the information regarding the subject from the link given below: IX, X class School%20Curriculum%20Vol%201.pdf XI, XII CLASS ges.pdf 2. Knowing about the curriculum Teacher should know the source from where he could get the information regarding the curriculum. He must share the information with the students and give them the hard copy of that in the beginning of the session. Students can start preparing from the beginning. 3. Circulars issued by the CBSE: Teacher should be aware of the circulars circulated by the CBSE. He/ She should update himself by visiting the CBSE website regularly 4. Obstacles to Academic Success Before proceeding any further, first of all lets see what are the main Obstacles To Academic Success. There can be many distractions... Some items in this list may be YOUR obstacles! Answer "Yes" to any item which regularly interferes with your doing well in school. If you have too many "yes" answers, Make a note and start working on it.

10 CONTENT DETAIL: Effective study skills and strategies are the basis of effective learning. They give you an opportunity to approach learning tasks systematically and independently. By always using good study habits learning to work smarter you will work like and become a successful student. Learn To Learn Learning is a very personal matter. There isn't one study/learning skill or strategy that works for every person in every situation. Therefore, learning to learn strategies are about learning what you know, learning what you don't know, and learning what to do about it. Your repertoire of study/learning strategies will: enable you to take more responsibility for your own learning allow you to spend your time effectively and stay on task help you select the best approach(s) for each assignment or task provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to begin, follow through, and complete assignments/tasks present you with access to a variety of content and reference materials give you the confidence to know when and who to ask for help 1. Know Yourself Honestly assess your strengths and weaknesses in basic skills reading, writing, listening, and study/work habits such as organization, time management, concentration, listening, and note taking. Next, identify your learning style preferences. Many factors affect learning, but consider whether you learn most effectively by reading, by watching, by listening, or by doing? You must also become familiar with your instructors teaching styles to help you adapt your learning style to the best advantage. In addition, consider when (Are you a morning person or a night owl?) and where (Do you concentrate best in a bright room with noise or in a cozy, quiet corner?) you are at your best for learning. 2. Manage Your Time and Life The first step in learning to manage your time controlling your own life is to identify what your goals are and then to establish priorities to help you

11 reach them. Analyze how you are using your time. If you aren't spending time on your priorities, you must make the necessary adjustments or you won't reach your goals. If school, learning, and good grades are a priority, then you must make and follow a schedule that gives a significant amount of time to go to class and study. 3. Improve Your Concentration As a good student, you will not necessarily study more than a poor student, but you will definitely use your study time more effectively. Learn to keep your attention focused on the task at hand concentrate. When you are in class or ready to study, give it your full attention. And remember, how well you learn something, not how fast you learn it, is the critical factor in remembering. You must "get" something before you can "forget" it. 4. Know What Study Means & How To Do It Learning takes more than just going to class and doing homework. It is really a four-part cycle: preview >> class >> review >> study When you establish a learning-cycle routine you will be able to learn more in less time with less stress. 5. Develop A Thinker's Vocabulary Each of our words is a symbol that represents an idea or object. Your ability to understand the meaning of the words others use and to select the right one(s) to communicate your ideas, information, and feelings is very important to effective learning. To develop a thinker's vocabulary, you must become sensitive to words and develop strategies for unlocking the meanings of new words and a process for remembering the new words and their meanings. 6. Become An Active Reader Did you ever fall asleep while playing Cricket or tennis or when watching your favorite television show? Probably not. How about when you're reading? Probably so. What makes the difference? If you are actively involved, physically and mentally, you stay interested

12 and committed. When you become passive, you rapidly lose interest and drift away. To learn from study/reading material, you must be an active, thinking participant in the process, not a passive bystander. Always preview the reading and make sure you have a specific purpose for each assignment. Read actively to fulfill your purpose and answer questions about the material. Keep involved by giving yourself frequent tests over what you've read. 7. Make a Habit of Writing Writing that accurately expresses your ideas demands not only writing skill but focused attention, critical thinking and active involvement. Only if you become actively involved in the writing process will you be able to communicate your ideas clearly. Your writing must have: o a purpose, o a controlling idea or thesis, o organized development of your idea with major and minor o supporting details, and o a logical conclusion. 8. Build Listening & Note taking Skills Accurately listening to a lecture and deciding what is important are two skills that must be mastered before you worry about how to write the information in your notes. Again, being an active rather than a passive participant is the key to your success. Taking good notes demands that you : o prepare for class, o become an active listener, o distinguish major from minor points, o use a note-taking system, o participate in class, and o review often. True education is not about cramming material into your brain. True education is the process of expanding your capabilities, of bringing

13 yourself into the world. Remember, Teachers can merely set the stage for you to create learning through your own action. Why Cramming does not work? There is a biological reason for this. The problem is that cramming information places it into our brains in short term storage. This is where you put everyday information that is not really worth remembering. In order to learn we have to transfer information into long term memory. Once there, you can retrieve it far easier over a longer period of time. Here's an overview the differences: Short term memory: All information is processed in the brain and stored in short term memory. The problem is that this information sort of overloads the brain and is not kept for very long. Can you remember every single event that happened to you in a given day? Think of the literally thousands of bits of information you are exposed to every day. It's not necessary to remember it all, so the brain dumps it after a time. Long Term Memory: This is the type of memory used when we want to store information in a more permanent way. This is either done by making information especially memorable (like getting burned means not to play with fire) or by repetition. Ever try to remember a new phone number? How many time do you look it up before you remember it? Course information is the same thing. If you're learning something new it's harder to remember. It takes constant review and trying to remember specific information before you actually can. Once something is transferred from short term to long term memory we say it has been learned. (or at least remembered) Cramming fails because you're relying on short term memory. This type is fairly unreliable. Where were you at 2:32 yesterday afternoon? Your brain once knew. Maybe there was a crime in your neighbourhood and the police want to know. Short term memory fails under stress. You doubt

14 your memory. The same thing happens when you take an exam, it's stressful. Improving Your Memory Anyone can improve their memory by following a 3 step process: Paying attention Applying constructivist methods Making information easy to remember Paying attention Take an active role in learning. Memorization is sometimes needed but is not enough. Review information and quiz yourself for true understanding. Stop being passive in class and when studying. Many students equate going to class and hearing the prof. with real learning.lwi can be dangerous. (Listening While Ignoring)It gives the impression that is trying but you can't remember anything later.thus you feel you did your job but couldn't explain anything when asked. Make information memorable Repetition, Repetition, Repetition, Repetition, Repetition, Repetition, Repetition Read it, Write it, Say it, Explain it, Draw it, Ask questions about it... Break down words by prefix or suffix. (Hydro relates to water) Use memory tricks: Make silly rhymes or sayings to remember lists. Use silly analogies to remember examples. Humor is a powerful memory trigger; the dumber the better. Study in short, Frequent Session Take Guilt-Free days of rest Honour Your Emotional State Review the Same Day Observe the Natural Learning Sequence

15 Use Exaggeration Prepare Your Study Environment Respect Brain Fade Create a Study Routine Set Reasonable Goals Avoid the Frustration Enemy 1 Study in Short, Frequent Sessions. It has been proven that short bursts of concentration repeated frequently are much more effective than one long session. So, even if you only have 10 minutes, DO IT. Take a break. Then study another 10 minutes. This distributed learning approach is highly efficient because it honors the way the brain likes to work. The brain needs recovery and recharging time for protein synthesis. The rest periods are when your brain assimilates your effort. They are a powerful tool which many teachers do not acknowledge. To sit and study for hours and hours is not only boring, it creates fatigue, stress, and distraction. You cannot learn if you are fatigued, stressed, and distracted! 2 Take Guilt-Free Days of Rest. This follows the same principle as above, but on a longer, daily time cycle. The reason for resting is to refresh oneself. However, if you feel guilty ( I really should be studying ) then your precious rest period has been used to create more stress. The brain will not absorb new data if it is stressed. On days off from studying, really enjoy yourself and do not feel bad about not studying. 3 Honour Your Emotional State. Do not study if you are tired, angry, distracted, or in a hurry. When the brain is relaxed, it is like a sponge and it naturally absorbs data without effort. If you are emotionally stressed, your brain literally repels data. Forcing yourself to sit and study when your mind is on other things is a complete waste of time!

16 4 Review the Same Day. When you learn something new, try to go over the points the same day. If you wait a few days and then make efforts to review the material, it will seem much less familiar. However,a quick review later in the day will tend to cement the information into your brain so that the next official study session, you will recognize it and it will seem easy. 5 Observe the Natural Learning Sequence. Think of the activities you did when you were in nursery school. Using your whole arm, you probably performed the song that goes: Put your right hand in, Put your right hand out. Then, in kindergarten, using your hand, you might have been asked to draw lines or circles with crayons. Later, in first grade, now holding the pencil with your fingers, you drew smaller lines and circles to create letters. Believe it or not, this natural learning sequence, moving from large to small, coarse to fine, still remains effective even though we are now older. When you study, if you try first to grasp the big picture and then fill in the details, you often have a more likely chance of success. 6 Use Exaggeration. Swinging two or three bats? Why do runners sometimes strap lead weights to their legs? In both cases, exaggeration during practice makes the final result seem easy. This concept can be applied to studying anything. For example, if you are studying spelling, exaggerate the sound of the letters to help to remember them. So for studying purposes, naive would be pronounced NAY-IVY. By getting used to this exaggerated pronunciation, the correct spelling seems obvious 7 Prepare Your Study Environment. If you require certain elements in your environment to help you study, try to always make these a priority. For example, do you need special lighting, silence, music, privacy, available snacks, etc.? Pay attention to what works for you and repeat it each time you study for best success. 8 Respect Brain Fade. It is normal for the brain to have an attrition rate and to forget things. This does not mean that you are stupid! Instead of getting mad about this

17 fact, you should expect it and deal with it accordingly. See your brain as depositing layers of knowledge. As you place more information on top, the lower levels become older and less available to your immediate recall. The trick here is simply to review. Since we can anticipate the eventual fading of our memory, creating a review aspect to our study session will solve the problem. Once every two or three study sessions, simply review older material that you will be still needing to remember. Often, a quick overview is sufficient. Sometimes, a complete detailed study session of the older material is required. Brain fade is completely normal. (Unless you are gifted with a photographic memory, which is extremely rare.) 9 Create a Study Routine. Generally, if you schedule certain times of the day to study, you will get into a routine and accomplish more. If you just fit it in during your day, chances are that there will never be any time. An effective way to do this is to literally mark it down in your datebook calendar as if you have an appointment, like going to the doctor. For example: Tuesday 3-4:30 P.M. Study. 10 Set Reasonable Goals. One of the main reasons people do not reach their goals is because they set them too high. If you set goals that are manageable, even if they seem too simple, you get in the habit of accomplishing them and gradually you can set higher goals. Also, recognize the difference between longterm and short-term goals. Set your vision on the long-term dream, but your day-to-day activity should be focused exclusively on the short-term, enabling steps. 11 Avoid the Frustration Enemy. Ironically, the quicker the person s nervous system, the faster they learn. Yet, this fast nervous system also works overtime in being self-critical. So they are the ones who always think they aren t going fast enough! In contrast, the Type B, less intense person who learns slower yet is more self-accepting, ends up ultimately learning the material in a shorter period of time. This is because he/she doesn t waste energy blocking, getting

18 upset, and thinking that they re not good enough they simply keep moving forward at a slower (but un-blocked) pace. ACTIVITY:- Evaluate Yourself (Questionnaire on memory clinic) S.N. In the last month how often have you Never Almo st never sometime s Fairly often Very often 1. How often do you forget things that you are supposed to do? 2. How often do you forget fullness limit your ability to do usual daily activities including household work, schoolwork or social activity? 3. Has anyone in life commented on your forgetfulness? 4. How often have you found yourself re-reading the same text because you could not remember what you have read already? 5. How often do you miss something that happens on TV and have to ask someone next to you? 6. How often does your mind tend to drift away when you are trying to do something? Change your learning style accordingly.

I have enough pens, paper and material I have internet access for research during for studying for the exams. study period.

20 4. How to Study Effectively To get the grades that you want, you must be willing to accept that you have to work hard. Prior to the exams, you will have two weeks of no lecturers. These two weeks should be focused on structured studying. When the exams start, you can then use the days in between exams to revise and catch up on all key facts. This way you are less likely to panic. If you have done the work, all you can do is go into the exam and do your best. Key Points to Studying Effectively Study Timetable Set up a study timetable for the two weeks prior to the exams (see step three). Make an agreement with yourself that you will study a certain amount of hours each day and what you will achieve within those hours. Remember to allocate time for recreational activity this allows a certain amount of leeway in your day so that if you run over, you have some time to play with. This also reduces the feelings of guilt or frustration when you do take time out as you have factored it in. Energy Levels Notice when you have the most energy during the day and schedule study time for those periods. Some people are more alert early in the day and others in the evening or late at night. Study Schedule Break down the study schedule into exams to be taken, number of topics to be studied for each subject and the number of hours given to each subject, each day. Set Goals Goal set for each day and for each week of study, e.g. you must have all topics covered and extra notes taken by end of Week One. Week Two can focus on revising key facts, text, formulae, practising graphs and looking at past exam questions. Highlighting Use highlighters to highlight key information during study so you can refer back easily. Keep highlighting use to a minimum as too much use will decrease its effects.

21 Extra information Allow time for searching the internet for extra facts and figures that will help you answer exam questions more effectively. Up-to-date statistics and figures help bring more depth to your answers. Preparing Study Timetable 1. Draw up a study timetable (see samples below) and block in all activities, work, lectures, and any household or other responsibilities you may have. Include meal times and travel time. Be realistic. This should be an actual timetable, which is possible, not some ideal that can never be achieved. Make enough copies to cover all the weeks leading up to exams or assessment. 2. Work out your most effective study times. When do you study best? Morning, Afternoon or an Evening? 3. Consider: Which subjects need the most study and revision? Estimate how many hours you think you need for each subject and try to match this with the hours available in your weekly planner. 4. Block in some study times, preferably 2-4 hours at a time, with 5-10 minutes break every minutes. 5. Start at exam periods or due dates for assignments and work backwards, blocking in more study time in the relevant subject closer to the exam/due date. Make sure that you prepare for each exam over several days and don t fill up the last few days too heavily. Also put in any events which may affect your study times, such as birthdays, social events and work functions. 6. You may want to plan in detail for each study session. Write down which lecture/topic/text you will be researching/ reviewing. This way, you can ensure that you will cover all the required information in the times you have allocated. Consider: What do I want to achieve in this session? (eg: summary/ notes / list of definitions/ language exercise/ essay plan/ list of resources/

22 timeline). Where will I need to study? Do I need access to a computer/ the internet/ the library? 7. If you have some smaller amounts of time available for study, consider how they could be used: skim reading an article, proofing a draft, sorting a bibliography, organising reference cards, etc. Travel time on public transport can also be used for reading. 8. Start using your study timetable. See how well it works. What did you leave out? It can be changed as you go, but do this consciously: look at what is not working, which areas you need more time in and change the timetable. This is much better than just throwing the timetable away. Then you can be sure that you will still cover all the material you need to.

23 Session 4 Module 4 Exam Preparation Aims & Objectives Teachers will be able to make students prepare for exams effectively. They will be able to make students aware about the importance of practice / pre final exams. Methodology: Discussion, Lecture, Activity Activity: Select some participants and give them some topic to speak. Ask them to go out from the lecture hall and prepare the topic. Call them back and invite one of them to speak on the topic which was given to him. When the participant comes change his topic. See the results This activity tells us about the importance of Preparation. Subject Content Pre final Exam / Pre Board exams Pre-boards are an opportunity an excellent chance to gauge where you stand. Pre-boards are the best way to measure how effective your board preparation has been till now. They act as a wake-up call and help you plan your days ahead: A good pre-board score (75-90%) indicates that you ve been doing things the right way. Though, it is NOT a signal to sit back and rest on your laurels! A not-so-good pre-board score (55-70%) is a sign that you ve been lagging in your preparation and that you need to start studying at full throttle to get a decent score in your boards.

24 A bad pre-board score (less than 50 %) is a cause for worry. You definitely need to pull up your socks and get your act together! Some pre-board preparation tips that will help you keep you cool & crack pre-boards Keep calm & cover your syllabi! Irrespective of which bracket out of the three aforementioned categories you fall in, it is time to set aside panic, anxiety and fear and focus on what lies ahead. Concentrate on covering your entire course material instead of losing sleep over what your results would be. Instead of stopping every other moment to wonder how bad your pre-board performance will be, utilise that time to cover another chapter! Plan & prioritise If you feel that there is no way you d be able to finish your syllabus in time for the pre-boards, then chalk out the most important and difficult topics that you should cover in each subject. Prioritise which chapters should be covered keeping in mind the upcoming board exams But make sure you cover the left-out topics after your pre-boards. You don t want to take chances with the big exam now, do you? Practice does make perfect This adage sounds clichéd but there s no avoiding the truth in it! Stock up on as many sample papers as you can and practice at least one a day. But make sure that you take these tests in conditions similar to an actual pre-board exam i.e. finish taking the test within the stipulated time. Reviewing your answer sheet is more critical. Mark your answers according to the CBSE marking scheme. Identify areas where you need improvement, work on them.your hard study is now complete and you are on the last stretch of the road. Important tips to prepare for the exams Exam Timetable Make sure you know what rooms your exams are in and what time they start! Materials Do you have enough pens, pencils, a watch, calculator, ruler, glasses, student card?

25 Food for Energy Have a balanced breakfast or lunch before the exam. A meal with lots of carbohydrates and proteins will give the body enough energy to get through the exam. Last minute revision It may help to use blank cards for writing your key notes to help with last minute revision. Also some students prefer to switch off before an exam and leave the notes at home. Nervous Yes, this is normal it is adrenalin moving around the body use this energy to motivate yourself to do well. Focus on positive thoughts to help relax your body and mind. If you are worried about anything talk to your Teacher, Principal, family or friends. Board exams / Final Exams Exam Checklist 1. Check your examination timetable on your portal page prior to starting your examinations to ensure that you are certain of all dates, times and venues. At the start of the examination you will receive an answer booklet. You will be required to enter your student ID/Roll number on the answer booklet 1. Your examination Roll Number, your seat number and Q P code must be written accurately and legibly, on the front of the answer booklet in the spaces provided. 2. Ensure you are familiar with the Examination Regulations. 3. You are required to bring your current student identification card to all examinations. 4. Reference your seat number outside the exam centre before entering the room. (You are NOT required to sign the list displayed outside the venue.) You will receive a different seat number for each exam. Please ensure that you sit in the correct seat. 5. Some items not permitted in the examination centres are: Mobile phones, Text storing or programmable calculators, Notes or books of

26 any kind (unless expressly approved), Pencil cases/paper, log tables, statistic tables, graph paper, formula (all supplied by the invigilator), Food and drink. 6. When you receive the examination paper, check it to ensure that you have been given the correct one. 7. Ensure that all the details are completed on the front of your answer booklet before returning it to the invigilator. 8. If you have any queries during the examination, if you have forgotten an item of stationery or are feeling unwell, you can discuss these issues with one of the invigilators. Exam Performance You may now turn over your papers What next? Read the exam paper a couple of times to make sure you understand the instructions and questions. Do not dive into writing without first reading the entire paper. - Calculate how much time you will give to each question and stick to it. - If you have rough work done at the back of the answer sheet note it near your answer so the examiner can see it. The exam day holds special importance in a student s life. For, preparations culminate into actions, the pre-board scores don t matter anymore, excitement of E-day, in an aspirant s heart, and it all boils down to those 3 hours. So, how can a student best utilize those 3 hours? Following is a very basic list of do s and don ts an aspirant must remember, apart, of course, from his formulae and concepts, on the day of the exam. CBSE Examination Do's Write your details, as requested, on all answer sheets.

27 Read each and every question, you can answer only if you know that a question has been asked. Sleep well a night before the exam and have a healthy breakfast the next morning.reach the center well in advance. Avoid last minute hassles. Read the instructions carefully before starting the exam. You will know the finer details of the exam, like any change in pattern, marking scheme etc. Read each and every question carefully and answer what has been asked. Keep some time for revision and check whether you have answered all questions you know. Answer the section you find easy, first. Have faith in your hard work and your preparations. CBSE Examination Don't Do not waste time on questions you are not sure of or those which are time consuming. Come back to answer them only when you are through with all that you know. Do not forget to carry your stationary, a watch and all the documents required. Like the hitchhiker s guide to the galaxy reads, Do not panic. Do not spend more time on a section that carries relatively less marks. Do not waste time on a numerical question, in case you don t know. Either you know them or you don t. Answer it if you do, move on to the next question in case you do not have a clue. Do not speculate how much marks you might get, while taking the exam. Concentrate on doing whatever you know.

28 Don t get distracted by any external factor. Do not conduct a post-mortem of the exam by predicting how many marks you might score, trying to figure out the correct answers from an unreliable source. In the end, remember, if you have prepared well, put your best foot forward and taken the exam to the best of your ability, there is no one to stop you from achieving what you deserve. To know about percentage wise career options available to you after class 12 th. Solutions if things go wrong! Panic Take three deep breaths, in through the nose and out through the mouth. This will slow the heart down and reduce panic. Going Blank As above, breath deeply for a few moments and then write down key words on the exam paper to help jog your memory or try to remember the day you studied this topic and see if this helps. Healthy Body = Healthy Mind You need energy for the body and for the mind when you are studying and during the exams. During your study break, get out and play for 30mins. Or go for a 30 min walk/run with friends. During study you can also keep your head, neck and shoulder muscles relaxed. Simple exercises include; 1. Gently roll the neck clockwise whilst breathing in and out slowly and then anti-clockwise (5 times). 2. Put hands on your lap whilst sitting in a chair. Pull your shoulders up, breath in and squeeze muscles. Exhale forcefully and let the shoulders drop. Relax
