So, you believe you can't mug up History and Chemistry, no matter how much you try, how much you sweat, you just CANNOT. DO. IT!
And yet, you CAN spend time in whining about it, in saying, "I can't do it". Hell, you can even be desperate enough to run AWAY from your very problem and look to the outside world for its solution.
That doesn't matter. As they say, denial is the first step to acceptance.
The only way to learn those equations or those answers is to expose your brain to them, day in and day out, until your memory is saturated with images of those despicable entities.
Also, here's a well-known secret: The ICSE syllabus is very limited. No matter how huge it seems(ignore this part if you're an insufferable know-it-all, read on if you're a naive 10thie), no matter how impossible CBSE folks try to make it seem, it is DOABLE. More than doable, it's freaking easy.
Board exams are designed to make students pass. As simple as that. Now, for average students, this is a blessing. For "talented" (:P) folks, its kinda boring. Now, if the talented folks in question are also smart, they should know that board exams are a test of pattern recognition more than they are a test of intelligence or knowledge.
This means that you can hack your way through the boards, if only you're smart enough. And smartness, like every other skill, can be learnt. In this context, it means reading through the past papers and realising that they possess uncanny similarity to one another. The broad topics being tested remain similar throughout every year, in a particular subject. Do this especially for your weak subjects.
In Chemistry, similar equations are asked every year. Be on the lookout for these.
The history paper is the most predictible paper of all. Certain chapters are asked alternatively, every other year. Be on the lookout for this pattern, especially in the subjective Section.
Hope it helped. :)
