How to Make a Study Timetable to Ace Your Board Exams

Preparing for board exams is not an easy affair. But it becomes less difficult if you create a personal study timetable to prepare for all the topics of class 12. The order in which topics are to be covered and how to go about preparing for them entirely depends on you. If you are a humanities student, you can list out the subjects in order of priority and decide on the time to be given to each subject. Similarly, students with a background in science and commerce can come up with their own list of subjects that require a significant investment of time. Not only does it keep you focused but it also prevents you from cramming before deadlines. What’s more, you don’t have to say goodbye to your social life. 

How to make a study timetable?

Listed below are a few steps to help you plan your study timetable effectively. 

  • Identify important dates: Write down the important dates on which you have certain academic and social commitments, be they assignment deadlines, application deadlines (internships, scholarships and summer programmes) or social occasions (anniversaries, weddings, etc.) Knowing them will help you plan your timetable as per your availability. 
  • Schedule multiple subjects: Design your study timetable in such a way that it helps you retain maximum information. Instead of devoting the entire day to a single subject or topic, make it a rule to divide your time into chunks so that multiple subjects and topics can be covered each day. 
  • Decide on a format: You can either make your timetable on a piece of paper or in digital format. However, compared to a print format, a digital timetable is easier to set up and allows more scope for customisation. You can make a lot of changes and revisions to it without wasting time or papers. 

Creating a study timetable gives you perspective on what you need to achieve within a stipulated time frame. If you want to feel motivated and organise your work systematically, try putting together a personalised study timetable. This will go a long way in boosting your time management skills when you prepare for future competitive exams.
