To prepare for the Sainik / Military School / RIMC :
The candidates should be made to follow a strict and systematic Study while he is preparing for the Sainik Competitive written examination. Please remember this is not your class / school examination where, a mere 35% of marks will do to get promoted to the next class. Only the best of the lot are being given admission in these prestigious Schools.
Please make a time table of your study period. A model time table : Time (Period) available for Preparation is 10 Months Or 300 days. X 2 = 600 hours.
Subjects to be studied :
- Intelligence Tests
- Science (In case of Class VIII and IX)
Let us consider that the candidate required more time for Mathematics. Hence we allot 200 hours out of 600 hours i.e 1/3 rd of the time available. Reason scoring 100 % in Mathematics is easy provided you are well prepared.
English 100 Hours, Science 200 Hours (The subject being vast you require many ref books) , IQ Tests 100 Hours. You can Devote 1/5 of this time for preparing for Sainik examination and 4/5th of this time for reading the subject.
How to prepare for Mathematics :
- Formulae are very important for solving the problems
- First of all read and understand the problem
- Note down the following :- What are the data given in the sum / Problem?, What is to be found out?, Which formulae are to be used to get the solution?
- Step one write down the formulae and substitute the Values in the formulae as per the requirement of the Formulae.
- After arriving at the solutions add units to the answer as required by the problem. Give a separate heading as Solution and under line it.
