The syllabus of class 10th generally has five subjects: English, maths, science, social studies and a third language. Here are a few subject wise study tips that might come handy:

BIOLOGY- the subject is mostly theory, so get through the important definitions and functions.
If you want to score A1 in maths then it’s important for you to focus on the formulas and it’s usage. Practice is the most important aspect to understand maths, without practice it’ll be difficult to attempt questions. So, practice is a must.

Believe in yourself and have confidence in yourself. Work hard and follow these tips to ace your board exams.
