Ma'am Basu will be holding comprehensive mock tests at Openhouse to help students gear up for the ICSE examinations. Among all subjects in the class 10 board exams, History has been notoriously popular for its daunting syllabus. Through these mocks followed by doubt clearing sessions, Ma'am intends to make students comfortable in giving a full-syllabus exam so that they are fully prepared by the time the board examinations come in.
Having been part of the council herself, Ma'am also makes it a point that students learn not only to answer correctly but also write the long answers in succinct ways that can help them maximize their scores!
Here is the schedule for the Ma'am Basu's mocks at Openhouse:
- Saturday Dec. 22nd: Paper on Indian History followed by doubt clearing session on Sunday
- Saturday Dec. 29th: Paper on Civics followed by doubt clearing session on Sunday
- Saturday Jan. 5th: Paper on World History followed by a doubt clearing session on Sunday
- Saturday Feb. 5th: Full-syllabus Mock test followed by a doubt clearing session on Sunday
In case the above times don't work for you because of your pre-boards or conflicts with other mocks, please call us and let us know. The timing for giving the mocks can be flexible. However, the students are encouraged to come on the designated doubt clearing session because adjusting that can be difficult. A similar series will also take place after the student's rehearsal exams as well.
