How to Prepare for Class 7th Examination?
Preparing for class 7 is not a difficult job. If you are well determined and consistent then it’s not that hard. But you have to start your preparation from the very beginning. You should work wisely and dedicatedly.
The subjects that are there in class 6 are Mathematics, English, Hindi, Science, Social science and Sanskrit. If you are from CBSE then you should definitely follow NCERT and then go for any other reference books.
You should plan each subject in different ways. Firstly, we will start with Mathematics. The chapters that are there in class 7 are Integers, Fractions, Rational numbers, Powers, Algebra, Algebraic expressions, Ratio and proportions, Geometry, understanding shapes, Properties of triangles, Symmetry, Representing 3D in 2D, Congruence, Construction Mensuration, Data handling.
Number system and Geometry has more weight-age and therefore need more practice. For scoring good marks you should go for practice tests before the exam. The pattern of practice tests is same as that of the original test.
Once you solve the practice test papers you will get to know the marks distribution of each type of questions. After you are done with the practice tests go for online tests. In online test series you will encounter varieties of questions which will help you in clearing the concepts.
Try solving the easy questions first and then go for the difficult one as the difficult ones need more time and patience. So, joining online test series is a must.
Time management is another issue faced by many students specially appearing for the math paper. So, to avoid this problem you have to practice as many papers as possible. Try to solve 50 questions each day based on any topic as per your choice and maintain his habit.
Practicing previous year papers is a must. Mark all the unanswered questions and practice them thoroughly. For chapters like Mensuration you need to know a lot of theory therefore, CBSE study material is of great use. These materials contain theories and proofs which are even asked in the exam.
Purchase a variety of books from different publishers and solve them. Keep on revising the notes that you have made in 6th standard so that you won’t forget the basics. You can also sit for math Olympiads so that you can learn tricks or shortcuts to solve the problems.
You can hire a tuition teacher who can solve your doubts. If you have missed any lesson or have any query regarding any particular topic then you can ask for their help. You can even go for online classes in YouTube and many other websites available.
Math is a subject that should be practiced daily. For memorizing the formulas you should revise them twice a day. Also, you should be thorough up to 20th table.
The syllabus of 7th standard science includes nutrition in plants/animals, fiber to fabric, heat, acids, bases, salts, Physical and chemical changes, weather, climate and animal adoptions of climate soil, winds, storm, cyclones, respiration in organisms, transportation in plants and animals, reproduction in plants, motion and time, electric current and its effects, light, water: a precious resource, forest: our lifeline’s and waste water story.
All the topics mentioned above are equally important as they are the basics of what you will learn in future. So, do concentrate on these topics and be thorough with the basics.
For preparing for science, first of all solve practice papers as they contain different type of questions and once you are done then go for any online test series as per your choice.
While you practice the practice tests, do it in such a way that you are giving the real exam. Select any place away from any disturbances and set the exact time that are given to you for the exam.
Solve the easy questions first like the theoretical one which you are confident about and then go for the tough one. You should practice the CBSE study material as it contains theory and exercise both.
While you read any chapter, jot down the important points in a separate copy. Also underline the points so that it will be easy to revise. Follow topper’s note as well. See the way they have written the answers and also the points they have highlighted.
Next is social science which includes history, geography, civics and economics. This subject is very vast as it contains four different areas and each part has nearly 10 lessons. So, it is very hectic to cover all the parts and therefore CBSE study materials play a very vital role here.
As mentioned earlier, make notes while you read any lesson and highlight the important points. This will help you memorize the important points which you may include while writing answers.
Again CBSE previous year papers is a must. To understand the marks distribution and the pattern of the questions, practice at least 4-5 papers every week. But start practicing the papers once you cover at least five chapters.
Prepare notes of important dates in history and stick them in the walls of your room. This will surely help you to memorize the dates and the events within no time. Try to find out your weaknesses and work on those areas. Revise those points every single day.
Now when it comes to scoring good marks in English, the first and the foremost thing you need is increase your vocabulary. Preparing for the exam should not be the only aim. Try to add more words into your bucket as you come across a new word.
Maintain a separate copy where you will write all those words along with their meaning, synonyms and antonyms.
For scoring well in exam you can follow the previous year papers and CBSE practice papers. Along with that join any test series for self assessment. This will be enough for scoring highest in exam.
For Hindi and Sanskrit, you can follow the similar tips as mentioned for English. Try to get involve in group discussions and debates. Write essays and short stories on any topic and ask your teachers to correct them.
Make a habit of reading English and Hindi newspapers so that you can be more familiar with these languages. Practice previous year papers and be very careful with grammars because a lot of marks will get deducted for this.
At last, be confident and give your exam. Meditate for 1 hour a day as this will help you to memorize the concepts. Be crystal clear with all the concepts. If you face any difficulty then don’t feel shy to ask your teachers. Be attentive while you are attending any class. Hope this will help.
