Board exams are an important milestone in a students' life because it is the stepping stone for their career. After years of toil and education in school, it is this exam for class 10 and class 12 that would be fruitful when students step out of their school to flaunt their academic excellence.
For such an important exam, revision should be indispensable as it concentrates all your hard work to one point of memory for you to deliver in the examination hall. What is special about pre-board exams from other exams is that it covers the entire syllabus and give you a real time experience about the main exam.
It is these pre-board exams that would decide your rank because it is a preparation that accumulates your consistent learning and its efforts. Some of you might take it lightly because the marks gained in this exam will not be considered in your marks sheet. But remember that you could only improve by few marks at a time, and this kind of exam is crucial in fixing your marks in the main exam.

If you find the paper difficult, it does not do you bad to study the answers for those questions first and then write the exam. You will still gain more knowledge and learn concepts that could be asked in your upcoming exam than getting frustrated about a tough question paper.
