How to prepare Physics for Class 12 Board Exam?



Physics is a very important subject for board exam and various competitive exams. Securing good marks in Physics can almost guarantee you a place in the top Institutes of the country. Students weak in Mathematics often find Physics very difficult and hence fail to qualify in various competitive exams. This problem is more common with students preparing for Medical exams. Over the past few years it has been seen that students weaker in Physics often fail to qualify in various Medical exams of India. In Medical exams, almost 25% of questions are asked from Physics. And if you are weak in this subject then it can obstruct you from achieving your goal. 



Poor marks in Physics can ruin your dreams of getting good marks in the Class 12 board exam. In order to secure good marks in this subject you need to become more prudent. You should invest more time in studying Physics. Physics requires regular practice like Mathematics. You must prepare an ideal routine to study Physics more systematically. Try to solve numerical problems of Physics daily. Whenever you find any difficulty while solving these problems then immediately consult your teacher for instantaneous help. You can also take help from your friends who are good in this subject. (Also Read: Date Sheet of CBSE Class 12 Board Exams 2015 )


In order to prepare Physics for Class 12 board exam you need to be more consistent with your study. Try to study NCERT Physics book consistently. Though it is not easy to understand different topics of Physics through NCERT books but to perform better in this subject this book is very important. You can take help of different side-books to understand topics in detail. But never underestimate NCERT books. Students preparing for Class 12 board exam (CBSE/ICSE) must read this book thoroughly. Nowadays even in various competitive exams, lots of questions are directly asked from NCERT books. (Also Read: How to Prepare Chemistry for Class 12 Board Exam? )


In Class 12 board exam, questions based on numerical problems are asked in very less number. So do not waste your time in solving numerical only. Try to focus equally on different derivations and theoretical questions. For Class 12 CBSE board exam, Modern Physics is very important. Students weak in Mathematics must prepare these chapters very well for the exam. Chapters like “Electronics”, “Dual Nature of Radiation” and “Atom and Nuclei” should be read thoroughly. These chapters are equally important for different competitive exams. (Also Read: How to Prepare Biology for Class 12 Board Exam? )


Optics” is a very important chapter for board exam. In CBSE Class 12 board exam, this chapter carries 14 marks. Chapters like “Electrostatics”, “Current and Electricity”, “Magnetism” and “EMI and AC” are also very important for board exams plus competitive exams. Students should try to study these chapters from the beginning of the academic session. Many students do not concentrate on these chapters initially and later they fail to grasp important topics from these chapters. If you want to really perform better in Physics then you need to spend more time on this subject. 


Students who are weak in Mathematics often find Physics very boring. But always remember, some medicines are also very bitter but that does not mean that they are not good for our body. Try to increase interest in this subject. Without taking interest in Physics you cannot do well in it. From today onwards try to study Physics daily. Try to solve 5-10 numerical problems on a regular basis. Consult your teachers and friends for any help. You can also participate in group discussion. Feel free to discuss any problems with me by commenting on this post.

    1. They are for the brilliant students. But CBSE hardly asks questions from them. If asked, then it will be for few marks. Undoubtedly they are tough.

  2. Sir,
    I have completed my physics syllabus, but i have studied only from my teachers notes. I haven't done ncert at all!! Moreover i only scored 70% in my preboards... I really want to score 95+ in boards, i am ready to do anything for that... please guide me. I know the articles but i just dont know how to go about while answering the conceptual questions, i have bought Pradeep's fundamental physics, is it a good book for studying the whole syllabus? Do i still have time to score 95+ in physics?? Reply fast please!!
    Thank you!!!

    1. You should then pray that all questions in the board exam come from your teacher's notes. Because you must follow NCERT for the board exam preparation. Pradeep is a good sidebook for understanding difficult NCERT topics but you should not prepare for the board exam from it as it is too vast and contains many extra stuffs that you don't need to study for the board exam.

    1. But all above mentioned chapters are not only important for your board exam, they are also equally important for the competitive exams. You must prepare them well. You can prepare them through Xam idea. You can also read these chapters through notes.

  4. SIR
    Is NCERT important for ISC board too??
    as i want my board exam to be best first than any competitive exam.Plzz tell me should i prefer NCERT?

    1. NCERT is important if you are going to appear AIPMT or JEE after your board exam. But as you stated your concerns in your another comment so I would suggest you to go with what your school teachers have suggested to you. NCERT covers almost all important topics for class 12 hence it is widely followed in all board exams. Please consult your teacher to clear your doubts.

  7. hello sir, i am anushka and have taken PCMB...i am able to score around 95/100 in chem, math, bio as well as english, but have been consistently scoring around the mid 80s in Physics which i really fear will bring my percentage down for the boards...my teacher says that I do not write all the points required and i need to concentrate and study. How do you think I should approach these two months before the boards to improve my physics?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Practice more and more questions from sample papers like Evergreen. Get an Xam idea which you can use as notes of each chapter. More you practice, more marks you will get. Give special emphasis on revision too. Have patience and study regularly. Your preparation for the board exam should revolve around NCERT. Solve numericals daily to get enough practice.

    2. thanks a lot sir, that's great advice, will surely try and practise a lot. I do have Xam idea. I need to focus on the smaller details too, that's what i have realized is a problem, the conversions and the sign changes or small exceptions in the application of a rule.

  13. Hello
    i just gave my class 11th finals and now am looking forward to the class 12th. I have been told by my teachers that physics of 12th is very tough and getting 95+ requires a lot of hard work!
    sir but my seniors suggest that 12th is far-far easier than 11th!

    also which reference book should i buy? S.L. Arora or Dinesh or pradeep?

  25. Sir I have completed part 1 of ncert and I'll be finishing the part 2 in about 30 days. I solved all numerical and problems and memorised all the derivations from ncert. Even i did certain derivations not in ncert like magnetic field due to straight current carrying wire, electric field due to straight charged wire without using gauss law, electric field on the axial point of a charged ring, capacitance of cylindrical and spherical capacitors, working of tangent galvanometer, vibration magnetometer etc. I don't have any other book neither do I study tuition. I am planning to do last 10 year questions and finally revision from ncert one I complete the part 2. I went through the last years paper which was really challenging especially the van den graaff generator one. Sir will all these help me score 96 above in physics ?

    I unfortunately failed in my preboards. Ibe been struggling with physics. I havent covered ncert yet. I wanna know in chptrs like electrostats,magnetism,ac,optics,communication...would doing only ncert questions and theory be a guarantee to score 90+ or should refer to some other book also.

Fight against obstacles that everyone faces, you will emerge victorious. Practice through sample papers and solve last year papers to get a rough idea about the exam. Revision should also be given equal importance.
