Hindi is one of the most spoken languages in India and is the mother tongue of millions of people. Other than English, it is the most used language for official purposes too. Hindi has rich literature with many renowned writers writing in this language. Nowadays it has become important for the students to learn and have a good amount of knowledge of Hindi for both understanding their own culture and for professional purposes too.
Hindi is considered to be an easy subject, and it is scoring too. With a little effort and a good strategy, one can secure a good percentage in the exam. Many students tend to take the subject for granted just because they use the language in daily life. But the students have to understand that it is one thing to know the language for private communication, and it is a completely different one to learn the language for studying the literature and the culture.
Those students need to focus more on the subject. That way with time they will have a bigger vocabulary and a greater competence to use the language in different ways. From here on this article will discuss some of the effective ways in which one can excel in class 7 Hindi.

Understanding the Importance of Classes
When it comes to literature, classes are always important. These texts are unabridged and written by some of the greatest authors. Many literary devices, many fine but rare words, and different ways of writing are used in these texts. These subtleties of the language can be a little tough for a student of class 7 to handle. Thus, the help of the teachers is necessary.
They can understand and explain the texts in a better way, and can easily clarify all the doubts. It is recommended that the students note down everything that seems difficult or interesting to them, and also the things that the teachers say are important for the exam.
Studying the Subject Regularly
As is mentioned, Hindi is not a difficult subject, but that doesn’t imply that it does not require any effort. The students who tend to think this way usually end up getting poor marks in the exam.
So, it is suggested that every student should reserve at least an hour from their daily schedule for this subject. And they must be consistent. Studying a lot for once is not important, studying little but studying every day is.
Practising as much as Possible
The NCERT Hindi books are provided with exercise sets at the end of every chapter, or the end of the book. It is highly recommended that the students practice those questions regularly, once they have finished the texts. Practising and solving more and more questions will help one build an individual relationship with the language.
This way she/he will be able to stretch, compress, and distort the language in her/his way. They can use the language to embellish their answer or make it concise and to the point according to their requirement. This is an important ability to have for every student.
Revising Frequently and Effectively
There are many ways to revise, and the most effective of them all is to start with one’s weak points. When the exam is standing on the threshold, and scoring good marks is the goal, one must first deal with her/his weak points. So, the first thing is to revise the notes and use them while rereading the texts.
Doing the exercise given the textbook over and over again, until all the doubts are clear. Going through the list of unknown words and literary devices that one has faced in different poems or stories. When everything is done, one should try to solve sample papers from different sources.
Grammar is an important portion of any language paper, and while dealing with it the students must be heedful of the rules and regulations. A special focus also should be on the writing section, as it has a good amount of weightage in the exam. These were all that the students could do to perform better in the exam.
The students must keep in mind that time will be limited in the exam. So, it is highly recommended that the students first attempt questions from the areas where they are very strong.
If one comes across a doubtful question, it is advisable to avoid them altogether or solve them later when all the known questions have already been answered. Using the last few minutes of the exam to check the answer script for silly mistakes is also important.
