SAS – Serious About Science
Importance of Science
Science has invaded every branch of modern life. It is the noise of machines, cars, mills and factories, etc. which awakens us every-day in the morning. The food we eat, the clothes we wear, the books and papers we read, the recreations we enjoy, the games we play – all have something or other to do with the application of science.
Every person feels the effects of science in every sphere of life. It is not merely the electric light or the electric fan, the radio or the cinema that displays the power of science in our daily life, but everything we do or is done to us is in some way or another connected with science.
Science is a way of life. Science is a perspective. Science is the process that takes us from confusion to understanding in a manner that's precise, predictive and reliable - a transformation, for those lucky enough to experience it, that is empowering and emotional.
Importance Of Learning Science In School
- Develops problem-solving skills
With the knowledge of science, you learn to think logically and solve a problem. It is this problem-solving skill, which is learnt in the early years that have enables a person to solve problems.
- Awareness about technology
- How to conserve natural resources
- Instills survival skills
SCIENCE FOR STUDENTS - HOW TO ATTEMPT SCIENCE PAPER TO SCORE FULL MARKS
Go through every topic. Also revise the high order thinking skills (HOTS) questions thoroughly. Those who wish to score 100 out of 100 should attempt all NCERT questions and additional exercises as many times as possible. Practice numericals and solve at least five previous years' papers. Every paper should be solved in the given three hours.
Read the CBSE sample papers thoroughly. Answer questions in the form of points. Underline the key words. Draw big diagrams where needed and label them. Attempt all questions of one section together.
Have enough practice of numerical-based chapters and do not leave out lessons on solids, solutions. revise each and everything.
some additional tips :
- go for making short notes or summary of the chapters.
- Notes should contain each and every important concept, definitions, shorts answers and everything important that is there in your textbooks, coaching, reference books etc.
- Go systematic. prepare your schedule properly.
- Keep in touch with your teachers they will help you a lot.
SOME FAMOUS SCIENTISTS
Fleming Left Hand Rule
thcentury, John Ambrose Fleming introduced both these rules and as per his name, the rules are well known as Fleming left and right hand rule.
Tips for improving performance in science exam
Switch it up.
Don’t stick to one topic; instead, study a bunch of different material in one sitting. This technique helps prepare us to use the right strategy for finding the solution to a problem.
Put yourself to the test.
Quizzing ourselves may be one of the best ways to prepare for the real deal.
Write it out.
Put those third-grade penmanship lessons to good use.
Come together (right now).
Group work doesn’t fly with everyone, but for those who benefit from a little team effort, a study group’s the way to go.
Learn what works.
Some people are early birds, some are night owls; some prefer to study with a pal, others need complete and total silence. Experiment to find what’s most effective for you, and then stick with it!
Tell a tale.
Turning the details you need to remember into a crazy story helps make the information more meaningful.

Making a Revision Plan
As always, planning is key.
- Create a Revision Timetable
You should start revising at least five or six weeks before your exams are due to start. Do be realistic about the goals you set in the time you have available, and remember you need to allow breaks now and then.
- Balance your subjects
Allocate topics to days, and make sure you have enough time for everything you want to revise. Balance the time you have available between your various courses. Do not neglect courses you find particularly easy or difficult.
- Identify key topics
For each course, identify which topics to revise. At the very least, you should cover twice as many topics as the number of questions you need to answer
How to Revise
There are three key revision methods:
- drafting model answers
There is no way around this task - to do well in exams, you have to remember your material. Ultimately, you have to work out the way of doing this that works best for you. Some of these approaches may help:
- Look at your notes for a topic on three or four occasions. This will fix them in your mind better than a once and for all approach.
- Predict a page of notes in your mind before you look at it. What you have forgotten will bring itself to your attention as you read.
Revision all year round
Revision should not be a last-minute attempt to make up for poor study habits in the previous eight months. As one topic quickly succeeds another in each course, it's easy to forget previous work all too soon.
- your lists of readings and references. Collect lists of past questions and past papers.
- Note down what you have not yet had time to do, and the key issues you have not yet investigated.
- Don't let work pile up. Even if you make the time to catch up, it may be impossible to get hold of readings for topics a few weeks before the exam.
- Try to read through your notes periodically. Use them to form an overview of the course so far. Make connections between what you have studied and what is to come.
