  • Make a time plan based on the examination pattern to complete the paper on time.
  • Be familiar with your syllabus and study in such a manner that you know your concepts well.
  • Revise thoroughly before your examination; so that there is no scope of making errors.
  • Study chapter wise, move to solving problems and do an intense revision.
  • Study and practice consistently to get good scores. Have a disciplined approach towards studies.
  • Do not try solving the problems until you are clear with the concepts.
  • Read the question cautiously and then select the option carefully.
  • Do not try to exert in the beginning of the paper; maintain uniform speed while attempting the questions.
  • Enhance your analytical skills by taking mock tests and stay focused while marking the answers.
  • Try learning short-cut formulas and use them in exams to save time.
  • Attempt only those questions, where you are 100% sure of your answers. You need to be quick here.
  • Then head for those questions, where you are confused only between two options. Sometimes guessing the answer intelligently, fetches marks.
  • It is suggested that you leave those questions where you are not at all sure about the answer; as there is no negative marking for an unanswered question.

  • Maintain cool and be stress free on the day of examination.
  • Solve past years papers as much as possible.
