She says “Though business studies is a theoretical subject, I am not leaving it for last. I have been quite regular in preparing it all through with all the topics. However, I still revise them every day as business studies is the second paper with only five days to prepare after the first exam”. This 17 year old student juggles time between tuition’s and safe-study to accommodate all subjects equally.
She chalks out a schedule for herself for the next day before going to bed every night. She says “I am not taking any tuition for business studies. Out teacher made us practice the topics enough and now I am also using the sample papers to revise at this stage. I aim at scoring at least 95%”.
Zenia prefers preparing for business studies at night after getting done with other subjects. Currently, her target for business studies is studying two chapters every night. As she says “Marketing is a huge chapter and carries a weight-age of 14 marks. I have divided it into two equal halves for my convenience. I revise them separately now. I only go through NCERT text as it contains every thing that would be asked in the prepare. I am also preparing the questions given by our teacher that require high-order thinking skills (HOTS). These questions can carry as many as six marks each and thus, are important to crack.”
She gets up around nine every morning and studies till late in the night. She may sit for a law entrance test after class 12 or go for BA honours economics. She says she cant do without short breaks between studying two subjects. “I either watch some television or go out for a walk. However, I make sure that walk is a short one as it becomes difficult to get the same concentration level back if I stay away for too long”, says Zenia. She says she wants to score at least 95% in aggregate as anything less may not take her anywhere. “I have put in a a lot of hard-work. I am now waiting to see how I would finally perform”.
So, are you a class 12 student? Do you feel difficulty in studying for exams, mainly Business studies? Why don’t you just take up Zeina's ideas to prepare for exams? What percentage are you aiming for? If not yet prepared, what about trying these steps to gain more grades.
