Set a Goal

set a goal for SEE exam

One of the big mistakes SEE graduates have is they never set their target.  Setting a goal is one of the first steps towards success because you will be prepared based on your goal. Remember that your mind works based on your thought. If your target is high, then your mind will work hard to achieve it while if it is low then your mind will prepare less. So, always set your goal to a high level whether it is SEE or anything in your life near future. Don’t worry about the result.

To set a Goal, understand the SEE grading System in detail

In the past, students needed good marks in every subject to study good courses at the higher secondary level. But now, with the grading system, things have changed. The new system, used by the SEE board, requires a GPA of over 2 to study science. You need at least a C+ in Science and Math, at least a C in English, and a minimum D+ in Social Studies and Nepali to be eligible for Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, or Computer Science in class 11.

To get into class 11, you must have a minimum GPA of 1.6 in the SEE exam. However, just having a 1.6 GPA is not enough; you must also get specific grades in certain subjects. For example, if you get C grades in Science, Math, and English, and D+ in Social and Nepali, with an average GPA of 1.6, you can study subjects like Zoology, Botany, Electrical, Civil, or Computer engineering after your +2.

On the other hand, if you get a GPA of 1.6 with at least a C in Math, D+ in English, Nepali, Science, and Social, you can study subjects like Mathematics, Accounting, Computer Science, Teaching Mathematics, Elements of Science, Astrology, Business Mathematics, Cooperative Management, Business Studies, Geography, and Psychology.

To study Education (I.Ed.), you need at least a C in Science and Math and at least a D+ in English, Nepali, and Social Studies. Subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Teaching Science are only available if you meet these criteria.

Similarly, if you get a C in English, D+ in Nepali and Social Studies, you can study English, Alternative English, Teaching English, and other language subjects. For Mass Communication, Hotel Management, and Travels and Tourism, you need a C in English, D+ in Nepali, Math, and Social Studies, according to the NEB criteria.

If you get C in Nepali, D+ in English and Nepali, you can study and teach Nepali in +2. If you secure C in Social Studies, D+ in English and Nepali, you can study subjects like Political Science, History, Culture, Home Science, Sociology, Philosophy, Library, and Infrastructure Science in class 11.

Furthermore, if you secure C in Environment and Population education, D+ in Science, Nepali, and English, you can study Introduction to Education, Infrastructure Pediatrician, Health and Physical Education, and Population and Environmental Education.

And if you secure D+ in English, Nepali, and Social, you can study Human Welfare Education, General Law, Sanskrit, Grammar, Literature, Justice, Veda, Psychology, Buddhist Education, and more.

Students interested in studying different languages must get a D+ in English. This grade allows you to study various language subjects like Maithili, Hindi, Nepali, French, Japanese, Urdu, German, Chinese, and others.

Similarly, D+ is required in English to study subjects like Dance, Music, Sculpture, Applied Arts, and Sports. Also, students graduating with a third grade face difficulty getting into college, so they should create opportunities to learn vocational skills.

Planning and execution

Planning for SEE examination

The second most important part is to prepare plans and execute them. Almost every student do the first phase of planning but most of them fail to execute their plan. This is the reason why most students are not getting what they expect. Remember that if you can’t do what you commit to yourself, then there is no guarantee that you will do what you commit to others. So, make a good plan and execute it properly. Start planning with SEE Model Questions.

Be Positive

Have a Positive Feeling about Exam

Always remember that 80% of the work is done through your mind and the rest is through your body. So, if you prepare mentally to achieve the goal you have set, then there is no chance that you will get fail. Be positive and work hard according to your plans. Then, the result is as per your desire. Many students do work hard externally but they are always in fear mentally. So, prepare your mind positively.

Balance Health

Balance Study and Health during SEE exam time

Health is one of the most important factors in your life. Without health, there is no meaning in every achievement you get. So, while going through your plans, always do take care of your health so that when time comes you can give your best. Without good health, you can’t perform well even if you have worked hard. Remember that you can get a chance even if you fail but if your health is gone, you can’t get it back.


Focus on Study during SEE examination

If you have done all of the above tips but if you don’t focus on what you want to achieve then, it is sure that you will not achieve your goal. Focus is one of the important factors of your success. Everybody says that you should focus on your goal but not everyone knows how to focus. Just learn how to focus on a particular point. It will help to increase your concentration power. What you read will stay in your mind forever. Many students read for long hours but they memorized what they read. This is due to the fact that they are not focusing on their study. They are just reading. There is a vast difference between focusing and reading.

Prepare Model Questions

This is no new thing for SEE students; I distinctly remember my teachers making me solve all the old question papers. SEE students get old question papers as class assignments, home assignments, and even vacation assignments. You may be angry with your teachers for making you do all the past papers but believe this really helps. This will give you an actual idea of how the paper will be and how to manage time for that. Don’t skip any past questions because a repeat of a question is very common in SEE. Also, practice time management skills. Separate time for each section and solve the questions accordingly.

Wap Nepal consists of a large database of SEE model questions and past exam questions. You can manage time to practice those questions. These model questions are very important questions for SEE examination.

Organize study place

Well, it is no new thing that the mind works best in an organized environment.  Make sure you have good space in your room to spread your books, notes, and all the necessary supplies. Keep everything in place while you sit to study. This will prevent distraction. If I can’t find my pencil while I am studying I just get distracted and end up scrolling news feed. So please don’t do this.

Keep everything in place and study without getting distracted. Also, you need good lighting and a comfortable chair. Don’t go for a too comfortable chair as you will end up sleeping. For many friends, good music works really well. You can even go for soothing music to get all your focus on your studies. So the bottom line is that an organized study place really helps, but still it is about your choices. I have many friends who study in the most cluttered environment.

Use charts and diagrams.

Our teachers teach us with the help of flowcharts for a reason. You remember flowcharts much more easily than written documents. This especially works with formulas or any procedures. Visual aids are really helpful, saying from my own experience. Make diagrams while studying. This will add freshness and also break the monotony. You can even use bright colours to highlight certain things. This is a really easy but useful tip for all the students. So for our SEE students as well, don’t tire your mind instead, study smart.

Engage with others

Studying with a friend helps really lot while preparing for the exam. Recite or explain your answers to others and this will help you remember everything. You can even teach your friend or help him with a numerical that you just learned. This way, you will never forget what you have learned. When you explain your answer this will give a clear idea of what you have studied so far.

Take breaks in between your study.

While you may think studying for hours will be helpful, this can actually tire you. Taking breaks between your studies is very important. This will break the monotony and freshen up your mind. After each break, you will be fresh and can understand things easily.

Take a break for lunch, water breaks or even get out for some time. Maybe just play with your pet and get back to work afterward.

Develop a study routine that best works for you and stick to that routine. Include all the breaks in your routine. Regular breaks can actually enhance your productivity but don’t be carried away. Stay focused and stick to your routine.

Group study with friends

Group study with friends will help you overcome each other’s weaknesses. You can learn from your friends and teach your friends. You can even get answers to questions you don’t know, solve some difficult problems. If executed properly, group study can be really meaningful, just make sure to not turn it into gossip time or game time. Stay focused on one topic and start another topic gradually.

Eat good food

You may have felt that as well. Studying really drains your energy, and you need good food while you are studying. Don’t go for heavy meals as you will feel lazy. Eat light but nutritious meals in between your study. As we know mind doesn’t work with an empty stomach, so keep your tummy full. Eat a good meal before you start studying and during the breaks as well. And also during the exam days also, don’t forget to have good food. You will need good food to overcome all the nervousness and fear. Avoid sugar during exam days, as it drains your energy very soon.

Stay calm on your exam day.

If you get nervous on your exam day, then all your hard work will just be a waste. To properly plan your exam day and stay calm. Don’t forget your supplies, and yes, keep them organized. I remember my SLC days when I forgot the calculator in my science examination. I had to borrow it from my bench mate, and it was really hard to share a calculator, So please don’t repeat my mistake. Keep everything ready in advance a day before your exam. Don’t wait for the exam day.  And very important, keep your entrance card safe. Reach the exam center at least half an hour early.
