2 Prioritize in First 15 Minutes -

The first 15 minutes are allotted for reading the question paper. Read the instructions carefully and then quickly go through the questions one-by-one. Tick the questions which are easy to solve. Students should set their priorities for solving the paper, starting from easier questions. Proper time management is an essential key to attempt board exam completely within the given time frame, so students should divide the time judiciously. Students should also keep some time for revision after they have solved the question paper. 

3 Never Forget Marking Scheme -

It is generally seen while writing the answers, students pour out whatever they know. This not only puts a negative impression on the examiner, also take away some of your precious time which you may use to answer more questions. This habit sometimes results in insufficient time to complete the paper. 

The examiner assigns marks for certain definite points, key terms, formulae and steps given in answers. So, it is advised that students should present their answers under word limit, must follow a hierarchy of relevance, from the most important to the least.

4 Scoring Marks is All About Presentation -

Along with writing the correct and appropriate answers, the presentation also matters a lot. That actually prompt examiner to read the answer and evaluate properly.

7 tips and suggestions to make your answer paper presentable:

1. Draw a 3cm border on both sides of the page of your answer sheet. On the left side, you will write the serial number of the question clearly and on the right side, you can do your rough work. This will allow you to do rough work on the same writing space without making your answer sheet looking confusing.

2. Write the question numbers properly. It should be clearly visible. 

3. Write the answers in a legible writing with properly spaced words which are neither too close nor too far away.

4. Try to write most of the answers in points or bullets with properly highlighted headers and sub-headers. Make the important points, keywords, steps, etc. highlighted/underlined.

5. Try to support your answers with as many diagrams, tables, charts, etc., as possible (but only for 3-5 marks questions). It increases the visual appeal of the answer as compared to text presentation.

6. Give a proper spacing between two consecutive answers.

7. Avoid scribbling or overwriting as it will make your answer sheet look messy. Strike off only once if you want to cut any information/word in your answer.

5 Try Attempting All Questions -

Since there is no negative marking, try attempting all questions. Always write the formula in any numerical based question. Put all steps while answering the question. If answer value is wrong but the other calculation and formula is right you will get some marks.

Try to answer in sequence but do not waste time on any question you are stuck at. Students can come back to such questions later as soon as they finish with the rest of the paper.

All the Best!
