5 Preparation Tips for Class 9 English Subject
In Class 9, students have two books to study throughout the year. One is the main course book named “Beehive”. Another is the supplementary reader named “Moment Supplementary Reader”. The main course book contains both prose and poetry sections. The first chapter of the poetry section is “The Road Not Taken”. To prepare this chapter, students must go through the “The Road Not Taken Summary”. Students can also take the help of NCERT solutions to make preparation for the English exam easier.
Below, we have provided tips in detail to prepare for the Class 9 English exam.
1) Read the Textbook
Students must go through the NCERT books. They should read each and every chapter of the book by themselves apart from the classroom teaching. By reading that, they will be able to comprehend the meaning of the chapter in a better way.
2) Stick To the English Syllabus
Students are advised to study only those topics which are mentioned in the syllabus. In this way, they will study in the right direction and will not divert from the topic. By knowing the English syllabus, students can plan their strategy and create a study schedule for themselves. It will help them in keeping track of topics they have studied and that need to be covered.
3) Solve the Exercise Questions
After understanding the chapter, students must try to answer the exercise question by themselves. By doing so, they do not need to mug up the answers. They can write the answers in their own words during the exam.
4) Create your Notes
Students must build a habit of creating the notes right from the beginning of the academic session. Creating the notes will help in quick revision during the exam and also save their time. It will help in quickly recalling the summary of the poem and comprehension passages. For example, just by looking at the “The Lake Isle of Innisfree Summary” students will get to know the summary of chapter 4 English Beehive book.
5) Revise Before the Exam
When students have completed the entire textbook and covered the syllabus, they should start with the revision part. It would be better if students give at least one month for the revision. At this time, they should go through The Road Not Taken Class 9 summary and all other chapters summary. Also, they should revise the exercise questions and authors’ names. To understand the difficulty level of the exam and the types of questions asked in the English paper, students must solve the past years’ papers.
5) Solve Past Years Papers
After revising the syllabus, the next step is practicing the sample papers and previous years’ papers. It helps in understanding the exam pattern, question paper design, and types of questions expected to be asked in the exam. Solving past year’s papers also provides a good revision to students, and they get better practice before the exam. Also, they get to know the important topics from where questions can be framed in the exam.
English is a language subject that requires a deep understanding of the text, correct usage of grammar, vocabulary, etc. Students can’t develop these skills in one or two days. For this, students need to study regularly and devote time to English subjects. We wish all the best to students in their exam preparation.
