The grade 12th examinations will soon commence and students are preparing accordingly. However, class 12th candidates often find subjects like physics, maths and English as tough. This is because each of these subjects requires high accuracy while answering and a good foundational background.
In this article, we have compiled a list of helpful tips that can help CBSE class 12 board exam students overcome their examination anxiety and make the most of their preparation time.
The tips mentioned in this article can be applied by CBSE class 12 board exam students from all subjects and grades.
7 Effective Methods to master class 12th physics
Begin with the syllabus
A syllabus is a great tool for students as it lays out what is expected from the examiners. Understanding the syllabus in the early stages will facilitate students in keeping a track of the key topics. It will make students aware as well as differentiate between topics that are content-wise heavy/theoretical and numerical topics. The syllabus also draws a map of topics that students can use as a checklist before the final exams. Hence it's advised that pupils should begin their preparations with the help of the syllabus.

Priorities high weightage chapters
The next preparation technique is to give priority to topics that have high weightage in the exam paper. Students can enlist such chapters as Optics, Electrostatics, Electromagnetic waves etc. It is recommended that pupils are well prepared with these topics and take full advantage of them. Another crucial thing to remember is that students must not neglect other chapters as smaller or easy topics are often combined to make a big question. Therefore, the best approach is to start learning the chanters that are on the priority list first and then jump onto the easy ones ( as they can be completed quickly).
Curate short notes
Next, pupils must curate short notes that have all the vital formulas, theorems, definitions and points for students to always go through them. These notes will help pupils to read and memorise them every day to retain them better. It is advised that students make a separate paper consisting of these crucial things so that it's easy to organise and skim through.
Brief yourself from NCERT books
Reference books are a necessity for subjects like physics as students need to get a better understanding of complex concepts. Also, it allows pupils to even learn how to structure their answers in an appropriate format. The more concise and accurate an answer is, the higher the marks students will get. Therefore students should also refer to good textbooks or sources like the NCERT books. These reference materials are quite insightful and their explanations are stated in a simple (easy to grasp) language! Moreover, pupils can find NCERT Physics Class 12 Book PDF in Hindi online and even download them.

Practice math every day
A subject like physics goes hand in hand with mathematics and if students are weak in any one it also impacts the other subject. Therefore, maths is a core component that cannot be neglected. So it's best if candidates alongside studying physics incorporate maths as well. Practising maths daily can bring serious improvements. If students struggle with some math topics then it's suggested they watch tutorials or videos to comprehend them better.

Solve multiple papers of the previous years
Solving papers is the main preparation step for all students. However, pupils often do not effectively solve them. To do this, grade 12th students must first be thorough with all the units and then for paper solving. Consequently, candidates should divide their time to complete a questionnaire that will help them to get a direction while solving a past paper. Furthermore, pupils will be able to acquire time management skills alongside recognising the exam paper pattern. Overall, solving past papers of at least 5 years should be a goal for students and certainly will help them master physics in no time!
Make sure to Revise
Lastly, if class 12th pupils face difficulties in retaining the studied topics then revision is the best method to solve this issue. Revision truly is an essential component of exam preparations as students constantly get briefed about the same topics repeatedly. This way, students find learning physics much easier. Besides, to revise, grade 12th candidates can opt for making flashcards or mind maps that aid in recalling information before the exam. Altogether, revision is a crucial aspect of mastering 12th Grade Physics that makes students more confident for exams. In particular, the revision allows students to be prepared early on and reduce pressure and anxiety so that they can give the exams with a clear mind.
Effective tips to remember during exam time
- Make sure to carry all the important notes and revision cards.
- Do not write answers in a rush to avoid making any blunders
- Try to complete the paper beforehand to check your answers briefly
- Quickly solve the easy questions first to save time
- Do not panic if you don't know how to answer a particular question, simply skip them and return to them later
- Never write unnecessary additional information in your answers, they won't give your marks
- Try to attempt all the questions
- Draw graphical representation whenever needed to refine your answer
- Make sure to write the SI units
- Solve the numerical problem step by step to avoid any mistakes.
In a nutshell, if students would like to master physics and get high scores in it, pupils must follow these simple tips. Apart from this, students may pay keen attention to the numerical related problems since those need a good math base. Also, physics has several types of questions that are easier to solve and can aid students to increase their pace while appearing for the exam. However, the utmost important skill that class 12th pupils should acquire is to avoid making silly mistakes as this can lower their overall score. Hence, practice is an essential starting point for students to get familiarised with the exam paper pattern.

Between zoom meetings, webinars, you're walking a tight rope to balance work from home and domestic chores, in all this its easy to forget about taking care of yourself. It's imperative to squeeze in a few hours to indulge in yourself, whether its a massage or a hair spa treatment.
It comes with a range of accessories which includes the 40mm Airwrap long barrels, 30mm Airwra barrels, a Firm smoothing brush, a Soft smoothing brush, a Round volumising brush, the Pre-styling dryer, a non-slip heat-resistant mat to place your styler on, a Storage case and even a Filter cleaning brush. A Storage bag (Iron/Fuchsia) securely stores your Dyson Airwrap when you're on the move.

The different styling attachments cater to unique hair needs and are designed for different hair styles. For instance the 30 mm barrels create and set voluminous curls. With clockwise and counter-clockwise barrels for symmetrical curls. The 40 mm barrels create and set loose curls or waves. The Firm smoothing brush creates a straighter style with less frizz ad fewer flyways, with firm bristles engineered to control unruly, frizz prone hair. The pre- styling dryer takes hair from wet to damp, ready for styling. The round volumizing brush directs air into the hair to give body, and the bristles create tension to shape hair as it dries, Ideal for limp, flat hair. To create a sooth, blow-dry finish. With soft bristles engineered to be gentle on the scalp.
It features three precise airflow speeds, to suit your styling and four precise heat settings, including constant cold shot. The cold shot immediately deactivates the heating element, for cooler air to set your style. The Coanda to curl barrels harness an aerodynamic phenomenon and the Coanda to smooth which uses Dyson brushes to attract hair to the surface of the brush, propelling air along the hair strands for a smooth, straighter style. It's powered by the Dyson digital motor V9, a 13-blade impeller spins at up to 110,000rpm, generating 3.2kPa. Powerful enough to produce the air pressure needed to create the Coanda effect. The intelligent heat control measures airflow temperature over 40 times a second, intelligently controlling the heating element to keep the temperature under a 150 degree Celsius. Preventing extreme heat damage. "Great styling and takes lesser effort than the usual blow drying. Saving lots of visits to the salon, absolutely love it!" says a salon regular who switched her weekly visits to the salon for the at home Dyson experience. (IANS/ MBI)

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.
The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar. The findings could be a significant step toward helping astronomers understand which types of stars are most likely to have planets orbiting them and what that indicates about the building blocks needed for successful planet formation, acoording to the study. "We need to look at a wide range of stars, not just ones like our sun, to understand that," Zink said.
The term "exoplanets" is used to describe planets outside of the solar system. The number of exoplanets that have been identified by astronomers numbers fewer than 5,000 in all, so the identification of hundreds of new ones is a significant advance. Kepler's original mission came to an unexpected end in 2013 when a mechanical failure left the spacecraft unable to precisely point at the patch of sky it had been observing for years.
But astronomers repurposed the telescope for a new mission known as K2, whose objective is to identify exoplanets near distant stars. Data from K2 is helping scientists understand how stars' location in the galaxy influences what kind of planets are able to form around them. (IANS/ MBI)
