**2.Make a timetable:**

Making a proper time-table is very essential as it will keep you motivated. You should always time yourself while answering the sample papers as it will help you manage time during the exam. Revise as many times as you can. Also, try and finish chapters which you find easy to understand as it will boost your confidence. While preparing, mark the questions and topics that you find difficult. And, give more attention to these difficult areas.

**3. Learn and Practice:**The one thing that is very crucial for Class 10 maths preparation is Practice. It is good to go through various types of problems, but at the same time, you should also make sure that you solve them for yourself.Solve a wide variety of problems covering all the topics, rather than just solving similar ones. Start solving Previous Year question papers just before the final exam so that you can have an actual feel of how the Maths paper might be and be aware of the pattern.

With the help of previous year papers, you will easily understand the level of questions which can be asked in CBSE Class 10th Maths board exam. Solving previous year papers will also enhance the writing speed of students.

**Tips and tricks to help you during the Exam:****1. Write Neatly:**You should keep in mind that the examiner has to understand every step of your answer and in most of the cases he would not be having much time to spend on a single answer. Avoid overwriting and write very neatly in your answer sheet.

**2. Mention clear steps in your Answer:**Whenever you go through an answer, ensure to pay special attention to the steps that helped you to reach out to get the answer. You cannot simply write the answer and get full marks in Maths, you have to mention each and every step clearly. Instead of all this, learn the steps involved. You will definitely secure some marks for each step.

**3. Attempt what you know first:**Read the question paper thoroughly before you begin to solve the questions. Mark the questions that you think will not take much time and attempt them first. In order to score high in Maths, you must attend the questions you know and then move on to the unfamiliar ones.

**4. Draw Graphs**Using graphs and figures can help you to score more marks if you make them with concentration, accuracy and neatness. For this, you will need a ruler and a sharpened pencil. These are some of the simplest things that you should not forget to carry as they play a vital role in fetching marks.
