New Delhi [India], February 15 (ANI/Mediawire): While CBSE Board Exam 2021 Date Sheet has been announced, the students of the CISCE Board still await any such announcement. CBSE Board Exams 2021 will begin from 4th May. For class 10th, the last exam will be held on June 07 and for class 12th, the exams will conclude on June 11.
Not just for students, it is a crucial time for teachers as well. Given below are some significant points to note for teachers to make the most of the time left.
Here are 5 things teachers should include in the preparation routine to alleviate stress and help students obtain desired results in CBSE ICSE board examinations2021.
1. Filter all-important questions from every chapter of every subject
CBSE ICSE Board Examination 2021 will be starting in just three months. In this crucial time, teachers should help the students in filtering important questions as per the examination pattern, from every chapter of every subject. Teachers should prepare subject-wise and chapter-wise lists of questions that have been and have high chances of re-appearing in the Boards. This will provide a finite structure for the students to undergo quick revision before exams.
Oswaal Books publishes CBSE ICSE Question Banks for Classes 10 and 12 which are neatly segregated Chapter-wise & Topic-wise. They are strictly based on the “Latest and Reduced” syllabus for 2021 Exams. These Question Banks are packed with innovative cognitive learning tools like Mind Maps, Concepts Videos, Toppers’ Answer Sheet etc. You can order their FREE Specimen Copies to curate practice material for the upcoming board exams.

2. Encourage solving Previous Years’ Question Papers
Assuming that the students must have completed the syllabus for each subject, it is time to channelise all the energy towards revision. Teachers should promote and encourage their students to solve Previous Years’ Question Papers to understand the format and sort of questions that have been asked through the years.
3. Prepare and Circulate a Common Mistakes Chart
There are some common errors that most students commit during the board exams, from failing to label organs in Biology to missing formulas and units in Math or Physics and end up losing marks. Starting with language-based subjects like English to numerical-based subjects like Math and Science, teachers are advised to educate and introduce students with ‘Commonly Made Mistakes’ to help them avoid such errors in the final exams.
Oswaal CBSE ICSE Sample Question Papers & Question Banks include learning tools like Commonly Made Errors and Answering Tips to help the students learn to write exam-focused answers. Moreover, as we know that this year board exams will have more application-based questions, you need to make them practice more & more sample questions based on the new pattern. Oswaal CBSE ICSE Sample Question Papers include new Typologies of Questions as suggested by the respective boards. You can get FREE Specimen Copies of even these Sample Papers from Oswaal Books.

4. Conduct Doubt Solving Sessions
It is suggested that the teachers should conduct a 30 to 45 minutes long doubt-solving session at least twice a week. This will be more possible now as the Schools are gradually starting to open. This will help the students clear their doubts and prepare more efficiently. These sessions can be arranged in groups of 5 to 10 students, as per the teacher’s bandwidth. Since offline classes have been affected in the last year, it will be a healthy activity for both teachers and students.
5. Conducting regular assessments
After completing the syllabus and going through all the additional study material, self-assessment comes as the next most important step to securing good marks. Teachers should involve their students in solving at least 4 Sample Papers of each subject, every week. Sample Papers help the students analyse their answers, identify mistakes, and rectify them to avoid errors in final exams. Oswaal Sample Question Papers for classes 10th and 12th are known for Self-Assessment. They include both Solved and Self-Assessment Papers to help the students undergo extensive practice before exams. Even teachers can use these Sample Papers for setting papers for the pre-board examinations.
Students have very little time left to practice and revise and the teachers have very little time to prepare the students for D-Day. Under such a crucial and pressurising situation, teachers should help the students by using the right study-resources. Given above are 5 important aspects of final preparation that can be looked upon by the teachers to assist students.
For the last 40 years, Oswaal Books is known for simplifying & making learning accessible for students across the country. This year Oswaal Books noticed the perils of the pandemic in the education sector, especially how teachers were burning the midnight oil to not let learning stop.
To help these teachers accelerate the process of preparing the students for the upcoming board exams, Oswaal Books is providing the teachers with FREE Specimen copies. Teachers can order for them here: https://bit.ly/2LDqIAv

California Walnuts launches global marketing initiative with coordinated “Power of 3” events across the globe
New Delhi [India], March 3 (ANI/NewsVoir): The California Walnut Commission announced today the second annual “Power of 3” global marketing campaign, which builds on the successful 2020 campaign. “Power of 3” will launch on March 3rd with a first-ever global event celebrated in the USA, Germany, India, Japan, South Korea, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the Middle East to showcase how they like to get their daily handful of walnuts.
The Power of 3:
Launches March, the 3rd month of the year.
Emphasizes the rich essential plant-based omega-3 ALA content of walnuts (2.5 grams/28 grams).
Encourages a handful a day (28 grams) as a simple way to improve overall nutrition.
This campaign is a fun and engaging way to build on one of California walnuts’ core benefits as the only nut that is a rich source of plant-based omega-3 ALA (2.5 grams/28 grams). ALA is an essential nutrient needed by the human body that can only be provided through the diet and has been associated with benefits for heart health, brain health and healthy ageing.
28 grams serving of walnuts provides plant-based protein (4 grams), fibre (2 grams) and is a good source of magnesium. Walnuts are also a good source of vitamin B6 (0.2 mg/28 grams) and an excellent source of copper (0.45 mg/28 grams) and manganese (0.1 mg/28 grams) all of which contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system.
“There was tremendous excitement around the globe for the Power of 3 campaign last year and we are thrilled to bring it back on an even bigger scale in 2021,” shares Pamela Graviet, Senior Marketing Director, International, for the California Walnut Commission. “This campaign makes it simple for consumers to remember just how easily they can improve their overall diet with a handful of walnuts.”
The campaign will employ a variety of communications tools, including a video that is a core component of the campaign and will be used across all markets. Recipes, developed by influencers in each country, will be shared across the globe providing inspiration to consumers.
Other elements will vary by market including digital and social media, blog posts, sweepstakes, influencer programs, recipe tips and tricks, easy recipes, instore promotions, advertisements and more to generate awareness that a handful of California walnuts is a powerful addition to the diet.
The Science behind Plant-Based Omega-3 ALA
All omega-3s provide health benefits, so it’s important to get these good fats from a variety of sources. As the only nut significantly high in omega-3 ALA (2.5 grams/28 grams), one of the easiest ways to get more ALA into your diet is to start with walnuts.
ALA and Heart Health
A study from Advances in Nutrition found that ALA may help improve heart health just as we have seen in studies focused on EPA and DHA. The literature review provided evidence showing the potentially beneficial role ALA may have in primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease, including stroke and heart attack.
According to a clinical trial published in The Journal of Nutrition, eating a diet rich in omega-3 ALA, from foods like walnuts, may help to lower the risk of heart disease through anti-inflammatory effects. Given the current promising data, there is a need for well-controlled clinical trials to clarify the effects of ALA on risk for cardiovascular disease and to determine the recommended amount of ALA to consume for heart health benefits.
ALA and Brain Health
A review study from Progress in Lipid Research assessed the tissue levels of omega-3 DHA formed from ALA. They reported several important findings. The first was that ALA leads to the synthesis of EPA in some cases, and in particular, may contribute to DHA levels in the brain. Evidence from a variety of studies suggests dietary ALA may be able to fulfil the human requirement for DHA in the body when higher levels of ALA (at least 1.2 grams) are consumed.
Assessing the synthesis of EPA and DHA from ALA in humans is limited to blood level measurements. The takeaway from this study is that through its conversion process, ALA may play a role in maintaining DHA levels in important issues such as the brain. More research is needed to fully understand the effect of this process on the body.
ALA and Healthy Aging
A study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (2020) looked at regular consumption of foods rich in marine or plant-based omega-3s and the risk of death among individuals who have suffered a heart attack. In addition, research from one of the largest clinical trials looking at the benefits of a Mediterranean diet suggested older Spanish individuals (ages 55-80) with a high cardiac risk who supplemented a high fish diet with dietary ALA saw a reduced risk of all-cause mortality. Specifically, study participants who consumed at least 0.7 per cent of their daily calorie intake from ALA had a 28 per cent reduced risk of all-cause mortality.
California Walnut Commission
The California Walnut Commission (CWC) was established in 1987 to represent the walnut growers and handlers of California and is funded by mandatory assessments of the growers. The Commission is an agency of the State of California that works in concurrence with the Secretary of the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and is mainly involved in health research on the consumption of walnuts and export market development activities.
The California Walnut Commission (CWC) prohibits discrimination in all its programs and activities on the basis of race, colour, national origin, age, disability, sex, marital status, familial status, parental status, religion, sexual orientation, genetic information, political beliefs, reprisal, or because all or part of an individual’s income is derived from any public assistance program (not all bases apply to all programs). Persons with limited English proficiency or disabilities who require alternative means for communication of program information (Braille, American Sign Language, large print, audiotape, etc.) should contact the CWC offices at (916) 932-7070.
