What do you need to do as soon as you enter the examination hall?
Sometimes when we see a familiar question, we get excited and read the first few words and answer it straight away. Read both of the 'Or' questions carefully, but only tackle one.
When we get to the last ten-mark answer, we're sometimes speeding through it and losing points since we spent so much time writing the first several short answers so nicely. Wear a watch instead of relying on the wall clock. And if you're out of time, skip the question and continue.
Let's say you do section A, and then if you don't want to do section B, you can go to section C if you want to. But when you start a section, complete it in serial order. This makes it easier for the examiner to check your paper.
If the question is to distinguish between, then answer the question in columns. If it's a two-mark question, write about four points and try giving examples. Write roughly five points and always summarise in the final phrase if the question is worth five marks.
In Science, draw diagrams. Use a sharp pencil, draw neat diagrams and label them. Also, remember to give a proper title to each diagram. In Social Sciences, if you have map work, please put the question number on the top left corner of the map and circle it. The first thing you do when you get a maths paper is write down all the information given in the question in the same order. In Math, even if your answer is correct, you must write the units like centimeters or rupees, which, if left, could be a costly mistake.
Students generally lose marks when they are giving extra information. If the question asks for only the advantages, don't go on with writing the disadvantages as well, this shows a lack of clarity.
If you have reading comprehension, always read the questions before you read the passage. That way, you know what information you're looking for when you read the passage in the writing section. For a letter-writing question, always adhere to the word limit.
Please attempt any questions on your paper that are not part of your syllabus. You should only check for negative markings. In the past, the examiners decided to award points for attempting, irrespective of whether it was right or wrong.
