Vision Global School’s Holistic Approach to Board Exam Success
Vision Global School (VGS) is poised to adopt an innovative and comprehensive approach for the future preparation of its Class 10th and 12th students, particularly focusing on the upcoming ICSE and ISC board exams. The school’s forward-looking strategy encompasses the following key initiatives:
- Pre-Board Examinations with Feedback: VGS will conduct two mock test sessions, termed Pre-Board Examinations, for Class 10th and 12th students. Following these exams, students will receive detailed feedback, helping them identify and work on their areas of improvement and strengths.
- Customized Study Plans and Revision Classes: VGS will assist students in developing Customized Study Plans, moving beyond traditional revision classes. This approach is tailored to meet the unique needs of each student, enhancing their individual learning experience.
- Peer Tutoring Programs: VGS will be introducing a Peer Tutoring Program, encouraging a collaborative learning environment. This initiative allows students to learn from their peers, fostering a supportive and interactive educational community.
- Mental Health and Well-Being Sessions, Including Stress Management Workshops: Recognizing the importance of mental health, VGS will organize comprehensive well-being sessions for students. These sessions, inclusive of stress management workshops, aim to ensure students remain mentally and emotionally balanced during their exam preparations.
- Parent Involvement Workshops: Understanding the pivotal role of parents in a student’s educational journey, VGS will conduct workshops aimed at guiding parents on how to effectively support their children through the exam preparation process.
- Career Guidance Sessions: To help students plan their future beyond board exams, VGS will organize career guidance sessions. These sessions are designed to provide insights into various career paths and assist students in aligning their academic efforts with their long-term goals.
- Online Resource Portal for Study Materials and Doubt Clarification: A significant step by VGS will be the establishment of an Online Resource Portal. This digital platform will serve as a central hub for study materials, practice papers, and video tutorials. It will also include facilities for individual doubt clarification, ensuring students have continual access to necessary resources and support.
With these initiatives in place, Vision Global School is set to not only academically prepare its students for their board exams but also to nurture their overall development. VGS’s commitment to this balanced, holistic approach demonstrates its dedication to shaping well-rounded, successful individuals.
Guide for Parents: Assisting Your Child in Creating a Customized Study Plan
As part of our initiative to empower students for their upcoming board exams, one of the key components is the development of Customized Study Plans. These plans are designed to cater to the unique learning styles, strengths, and areas of improvement of each student. Here’s how you can guide and support your child in creating an effective study plan:
- Understand Your Child’s Learning Style: Every student has a unique way of learning. Some are visual learners, others prefer listening, while some learn best through practice. Observe your child’s learning habits and discuss with them what methods work best for them.
- Set Realistic Goals: Help your child set achievable and specific academic goals. These goals could range from improving in a particular subject to mastering a certain topic. Ensure that these goals are measurable and time-bound.
- Create a Balanced Schedule: Work with your child to develop a study timetable that is balanced. It should allocate time for each subject, including time for revision, breaks, and leisure activities. Encourage them to stick to this timetable.
- Identify Key Areas of Focus: Together with your child, identify subjects or topics where they need more attention. This will help in allocating more time to these areas in their study plan.
- Encourage Consistent Review and Adaptation: A study plan should be dynamic. Regularly review the plan with your child and make adjustments as needed, based on their progress and feedback.
- Promote Healthy Study Habits: Encourage your child to adopt healthy study habits. This includes taking regular breaks, staying hydrated, and avoiding long hours of continuous study which can lead to burnout.
- Provide a Conducive Study Environment: Ensure that your child has a quiet and comfortable space for studying. A good study environment can significantly enhance concentration and efficiency.
- Offer Support and Encouragement: Be there to support your child emotionally. Praise their efforts and progress, and encourage them, especially during challenging times.
- Seek Help When Needed: If you or your child feel overwhelmed, don’t hesitate to seek help from teachers or educational counselors.
By following these steps, you can play a vital role in helping your child develop a Customized Study Plan that not only prepares them for their exams but also instills effective learning and time management skills that will benefit them in the long term.
We appreciate your involvement and support in this endeavor and are confident that together, we can help our students achieve their best.

Guide for Parents: Supporting Your Child Post-Customized Study Plan Creation
Creating a Customized Study Plan is the first critical step towards effective exam preparation. However, the success of this plan largely depends on its consistent implementation and regular review. Here’s how you can support your child in this ongoing process:
- Monitoring and Encouragement: Regularly check in with your child to see if they are following their study plan. Offer encouragement and positive reinforcement for their dedication and hard work.
- Track Progress and Missed Targets: Help your child to keep track of their progress against the study plan. If certain targets are missed, discuss why this happened and how they can catch up.
- Weekly Analysis and Adjustments: Set aside time each week for a review session with your child. This is a time to analyze what worked well and what didn’t, and make necessary adjustments to the study plan.
- Balancing Flexibility and Structure: While it’s important to stick to the plan, flexibility is also key. If your child is struggling with a particular topic, it might be necessary to allocate more time to it, even if this wasn’t in the original plan.
- Encourage Reflective Learning: Urge your child to reflect on their learning process. This can involve jotting down difficult concepts, mistakes in mock tests, or areas where they feel confident. Reflective learning helps in identifying patterns and areas that need more focus.
- Promote Healthy Habits: Ensure that your child maintains a healthy lifestyle, including proper sleep, nutrition, and physical activity. A healthy body contributes significantly to a productive mind.
- Provide Emotional Support: The pressure of exams can be overwhelming. Be there to listen, offer comfort, and counsel your child through stressful times.
- Stress Management Techniques: Teach and encourage your child to use stress management techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, or short walks.
- Celebrating Small Achievements: Acknowledge and celebrate small milestones and improvements. This boosts morale and keeps your child motivated.
- Seeking External Help When Necessary: If certain subjects or topics are consistently challenging, consider seeking additional help from tutors or teachers.
By actively participating in these post-plan activities, you can significantly aid your child in staying on track with their Customized Study Plan and achieving their academic goals. Your ongoing support and involvement are key to their success.
