Tip of the Day #8


Here’s a last-minute tip based on a question asked by a reader regarding how to write your answers and presentation of your answer script…

In the 2013 exams, we were allowed to start any section first while attempting our question paper. Whether you are attempting Section A first or Section B, it is better to keep this in mind…

Tip(s) of the Day:Β Students are required to complete the entire section that they have chosen first and answer all questions included in that section before attempting the rest of the sections.

Clearly mention the section heading at the top of the page in large, clear, bold, capital letters.

Always start a new section on a new page and before attempting a new section, check whether you have missed out on any question from the current section.

Do not answer a question from the first section after completing the second section – it is unlikely that your answer will be checked in such a case.

Please remain alert and take the above precautions. Good luck! πŸ™‚

      Hi there!

      All I can suggest is to practice, practice, and practice! Attempt at least seven mock tests to get a hang of it and commit yourself to finish writing the paper on time, then five minutes beforehand, and then ten minutes beforehand. By the time you finish with the last of the seven papers, you will have had enough time to revise your answer sheet. πŸ™‚

      Hope this helped! Keep visiting. πŸ™‚

      Hi Harish,

      There is absolutely no need to be fearful! We all are a little nervous before any exam, especially before the Board Exams. However, have faith in your hard work and ability, and believe that everything will go well. Keeping a positive mindset is key! Ultimately, do your best and leave the rest to God.

      All the best for your exams! πŸ™‚ Stay connected.
