When you enter your class 11th a lot of things changes, now you don't have small topics and easy questions.

You have to deal with some in-depth topical analysis and handle tough numericals, that's the reason a lot of students complain about class 11th toughness, it doesn't matter from which stream you are? If you are not good at handling load than for sure, you'll feel class 11th as tough.

The first struggle we face when we are about to move into class 11th cbse is?

Which subject to choose in class 11th? And what after your class 10th
  1. Science 
  2. Commerce 
  3. Arts
Once you are done with this problem, then the second problem is scoring good in class 11th, and getting a grip over your subject.

As I mentioned your stream doesn't matter, you need to score in all stream.

So, the question is, how should one score in class 11th science PCM AND PCB and commerce.

This post is fully dedicated to PCM and PCB, you can say it's only for science students. If you are from another stream than also you can read it, because I am sure you'll learn a lot of things, from this post.

What are the things that you need to do during your class 11th?

Let's discuss,

If you find this helpful don't forget to comment below, because your opinion matters a lot.


Class 11th is full of surprises in terms of syllabus and topics, these topics are very important for your higher classes. Suppose you want to do B-tech, MSc, Biotechnology, MBBS or any other thing. 

These topics will be handy and for sure help, you in your college career, not only that these topics are crucial for class 12th as well as the competitive exams after class 12th.

Exams like IIT JEE, NDA, NEET,  other competitive exams and college entrance exams, are entirely based on these topics of class 11th.

It doesn't matter from which board you are? But class 11th has the same importance for all boards. Whether it's CBSE, ICSE or state boards.

Before moving to other things, let's discuss why class 11th feels tougher than other classes, even from 12th class?

The whole idea of toughness is because of the vastness of syllabus of class 11th cbse or any other board.

Only because the number of pages in your book got doubled, you are feeling troubled with class 11th.

The above reason is quite primary the other reason for class 11th cbse toughness is, what you have done in your class 10th?

Schoolokay knows that most of the students just got pass by reading question answers, and now they are struggling with class 11th.


  1. Those who have not gone through their class 10th books only studied in last moments for exams. 
  2. Those who believe that they are studying for their parents.
  3. Those Students who don't understand concepts and learn things without understanding them. 
  4. Those who have not given any importance to class 10th at all. 
  5. And those who assume that they are too smart because of their scores in the previous class. 
Just underline this, 
Those students who scores well in class 10th, it's not necessary that they will score well in class 11th as well, they can fail too.
Why they can fail? 

The reason is quite simple class 11th has nothing to do with your class 10th. The topics are quite similar, but they are more expanded in class 11th than class 10th.

So, students who believe that class 11th is same as class 10th, it's a big mistake.

That's the reason you must stop comparing both classes.

Now, let's talk about what's vital in class 11th? 

First thing you need to know is Marks are not crucial in class 11th, you may be thinking why?

The reason is quite simple, class 11th is for learning not for scoring, that's why no one asks you about your class 11th scores. 
I hope you got this.

You have to give your 100% to your books and learning all the things in class 11th cbse.

Again I am repeating the same things your subjects doesn't matter a lot, only thing matter is, how much you have learned in class 11th? 

You need to handle your learning carefully, instead of running behind the marks, because your class 11th score doesn't count anywhere.

So you need to take care of the following things in class 11th cbse.
  1. Try to learn new things.
  2. Read more and more books other than your reference books of class 11th
  3. Give attention to all the topics they are essential for higher classes.
  4. Do not waste your time because it will never come back. 
  5. Do not run behind score because that's not important. 
  6. Try to gain concepts very clearly.
  7. Your practice makes a difference. 
  8. Solve more and more questions and numericals from your reference books.
If you follow the above instructions, your scores will automatically improve in class 11th cbse. 

If you have such questions, how can I score full in class 11th cbse and other boards?

Then I think you got your answer. 

Scoring doesn't count in class 11th because of the vast syllabus that you have to cover in class 11th.

You can score well if you follow your books and apply your conceptual knowledge in class 11th exams. Because 11th class exams are not theory-based, they are a mixture of theory and numericals.

And according to schoolokay, you can not learn numericals. 

It merely depends on what kind of learning approach you have? If you analyze things than it's okay, otherwise, you can't deal with PCB AND PCM in class 11th efficiently.  

If you have rote memorization than you must go with other streams because in science you need a sound mind, and indifferent streams, you need to learn topics.

Topics of class 11th physics Projectile, Banking of road, Laws of Motion, Kinematics, work energy and power, e.t.c. 

These require an efficient approach. Science is all about everything around you, and the nature of those things.

Just take an example of the water cycle?

If you don't know the starting and the endpoint of it, you can have a thought that the original form of water is liquid, or maybe ice or gaseous state or oxygen and hydrogen, what is the real way of water? 

Just think for a while about it, there are a lot of things science that you can think about.

Schoolokay has noticed students of class 11th struggling with the science because they believe that they have chosen a wrong stream and they do not have a practical approach.

Because of that, some of the struggle to change their stream, and some just change that at last.

Readers, if you are a student and facing any problem related to your studies and other educational thing, make sure to comment below.

As I have explained a lot of things above, now estimate that there is not so much need of telling about scoring good in class 11th icse.

Your class 11th need preparation different than other classes, in class 10th, you used to prepare by just reading, but you can't do the same with your class 11th and class 12th.

The reason is the increase in the number of derivations and numerical in class 11th.

Sometimes subjects like physics, chemistry, math become tough to handle because of a lot of derivations and calculations. If you are afraid of predictions, then you must not choose science go with other streams.

Science has its own impact and other streams their own, so don't compare which subject is better, all are equally important.

Your success not dependent on how much you have scored, it completely relies on your knowledge.

Science plays a vital role in dealing with many issues like now we are dealing with Noval coronavirus.

Class 11 science will transforms your mind and makes you think differently, sometimes it gets difficult to deal with some topics, but if you try then you can handle them easily.

Once you have selected science as your subject, don't hold back lend your 100% to that, and all things get arranged.

The only way to score well is practice and there are no other shortcuts.


1. Maintain Regularity to score good marks in class 11 CBSE.

When you start your journey of class 11th two new things happen?
  1. One is a new course.
  2. Another is your Teenage.
These both things impact your studies if you fail to understand both of them, then they'll push you in the wrong direction. 

Because of the second one, many students just bunk the classes and later they fail the class 11th, only because of unusual carelessness.

You must know this, class 11th science take 120 or more students every year, and only half of the students reach to class 12th.

Because they don't listen to their teachers, what they saying and why?

Why you need to pay attention to the class, even you are not learning anything?

Paying attention will allow you to see through many things, like some of you, want to become a teacher in the future.

So you need to see what you need to change or do differently than your current teachers, to provide your students right guidance.

And, you can't ignore this fact that some teachers at your school are really impressive, they don't give their best only because most of the class is not paying attention to them.

2. Practice more questions and have a practical approach.

Many students have rote memorization, so they just read things without understanding them, which results in bad scores.

You are well aware that not all toppers get success in the future, the reason is they never understand topics they just learned them.

The golden tip for score well in class 11th.
Practice more and you will score more, solve more and more questions you will score in every class.
There are no shortcuts in class 11th science.

3. Leave rote memorization completely, I am not explaining it, just look at the picture, and you'll get the point.

Subjects like physics and math need a calculative approach, not rote memorization because they cover a high amount of numericals.

best ways to score good in pcm and pcb

You remember this, 3 idiot epic scene, this simply explains, what happens? When you rote everything without understanding.
Never ever say things which you don't understand because you must know what you are sying before uttering them from your mouth. 
So, according to schoolokay, you must focus on learning and understanding things instead of scoring because you know that no one asks your class 11th scores.


  1. Try to increase your knowledge at every point of your life, and implement that in your class 11th science.
  2. Do not use too much internet in your studies, as coronavirus is rolled out currently, you can use your pc and laptops.
  3. Always have a balance between your books and the internet.

Only take online classes than move to your pen and paper.

Limit the use of the internet in your life as well. Otherwise, you will become an information freak, and too much information is not suitable for your health. 

Only gain that much you can digest, it's same like eating food.

You must change your habits because they'll be going to decide your future.
  1. You must have habits that allow you to grow in life and makes you happy.
  2. And must develop good habits for yourself.

I will totally advise you just go easy with reference books and only buy which have refined material explained with modestly.

Check out best reference books for class 11, best reference books for class 12 and what after class 12 science.

Don't try to solve those books that you can not explain. Attempting difficult books will confuse you, and it will only be going to make you less interested in studies.
