7 MISTAKES TO AVOID WHILE WRITING YOUR BOARD EXAMS
So the CBSE Board Exams have started!
Don’t worry if your first exam didn’t go by that good, rest of it is still remaining. You can still score well. CBSE Board exams more than your intelligence, test your patience. More or the less it’s just a havoc that is created by the society.
Take a chill pill!
Here are some crucial mistakes that are often done by students which need to be avoided while writing Board Exams:
Yes we know you are really tensed about the exam but RELAX!. Overwriting is not the solution. This mistake costs a huge deduction in marks. Just imagine it yourself, “Would you even read a sentence that has got some many cutting and is actually hard to read? Would you invest your time in reading that?” The answer is NO. Mistakes are obvious but try to keep them low. Even If you did a mistake, don’t make it a mess. TAKE A PENCIL AND CUT THAT WORD OR SENTENCE TWO TIMES WITH TWO PARALLEL LINES. Don’t do anything other than that.
- DOING LESS NUMBER QUESTIONS FIRST
Well it depends on the writing speed too but we recommend that you should always start your paper from the last. As in CBSE Board exams the question with higher scoring marks are at the end. Even if at the end you are left with some questions with very less time left, you’ll always have a chance to complete questions of fewer marks rather than the ones with 5 or 10 marks. It’s always a relief to complete 8 or 10 marks questions first.
- NOT KEEPING ENOUGH SPACE BETWEEN TWO QUESTIONS
Always keep a two line space between two different questions. It makes the answer look less messy and more readable. Instead draw a line with a black pen between two answers.
- NOT LABELING YOUR DIAGRAMS
YES THIS IS IMPORTANT!
Many students ignore this. You should always label your diagrams; it creates a good impression in front of the checker.
- NOT NUMBERING YOUR STEPS WHILE WRITING MATHEMATICS/PHYSICS/CHEMISTRY EXAM
These subjects have got the maximum questions of derivations or long answer questions. Like in mathematics, while solving a question which has got a long answer, give number to all the important steps so that while solving you can easily refer onto those particular steps. Keep it clear and nice.
In derivations, Number the important steps for further reference in the answer.
- IRRESPONSIBLE TIME MANAGEMENT
This is the most important step of all. Time management is the skill you need to score 90+. Don’t hang onto one question for 15-20 Minutes. Skip it do the next one. You don’t have a lifetime. Just 3 hours you all have. Try dividing the sections with time limit. Plan your each hour. Don’t waste on time one single questions. Try completing the biggest section with maximum number at first. Set a time limit for that part and continue with the second one. In this way you’ll be able to do all the sections properly.
There’s no problem in not knowing that one question. Don’t stress upon it. Move forward. There are whole lots of questions you can look onto. Don’t Panic! You shall even forget what you have studied cause of that panicking. Just keep calm and solve with your whole mind and heart.
BEST WISHES FOR BOARDS!
