Study Timetable for Class 10 Students

study time table

There is something about facing board exams for the first time. Even the coolest kids in your class might be seen breaking a sweat. Especially now when things are so competitive. You kind of have to excel. Or you may end up in a school or college that just is not your choice.

Unpleasant scenario, right?

Well, it can change. It can turn pleasant. If you have a timetable in place to nail your upcoming boards,that is!

The thing about having a concrete study timetable is that it can keep all those scaries away. And minimising stress and anxiety at this stage is important. It really is the key to success because the calmer you are, the more you will remember what you’ve studied. And is that not the whole point?

That said, if you do not know how to fashion your study timetable and set it up for success, allow us to help you!

A couple of 10th class study timetable strategies to help you out

Hey, we feel you. Studying for your board exams is hard. So we thought we would give you a few extra strategies just to help you out.

  1. Mark the super important chapters 
  2. Your teachers are likely going to give you hints on which chapters will carry the most weight. Make a note of them and give them some extra time. You can do the same with chapters you find difficult among them.

  3. Divide your time like a pro  
  4. It will take some time but within a few days of following your 10th class study timetable, you will be able to divide your time better. So our suggestion is make sure you get to study, revise and practice each subject well. And do not forget about taking breaks!

  5. Be reasonable
  6. With your expectations and goals that is. Putting up too much pressure on yourself may lead to the opposite of success. So you have to be mindful when planning your timetable. Keep ample time in hand for all subjects, including the easy ones.

  7. Use your strengths 
  8. And work on your weaknesses! You already know which subjects you are good at. So it is okay to give them a little less time and instead give more time to the ones you find difficult. That way you would be able to cover all the bases.

  9. Take breaks
  10. Enough said! Breaks are the only way to replenish your tired brain and ensure you are able to cram in everything you need to study without feeling bogged down.

  11. Break the monotony with changes
  12. Studying one subject for too long will wear you out. You need to break the monotony by alternating subjects. Also, feel free to tweak the timetable we have given to suit your schedule best. And keep changing your timetable as you keep ticking off subjects from your study list.
