Time Management and Entrance Examination TIPS

An insightful session was conducted on 4 November 2020 especially for the students of grade 12, to help them develop time management skills well in advance before the upcoming Board and Entrance Examinations. Ms. Shilpa SIngh gave valuable tips to the students who would be very soon appearing not only for the CBSE Board examination but various Entrance Examinations as well. Very often students are well prepared for the examinations in terms of learning and practicing the content but lose marks due to improper time management and planning. The session clearly outlined strategies that, when followed, would prove useful for the students. The same can be watched and understood in the video.
