Here are a few last-minute tips for writing your Geography exam:
* Do not overwrite in your maps. Mark the asked things lightly so that you can erase it easily if you feel like changing your answer.
* Make sure you label diagrams (if any) and things in the map in capital/uppercase letters.
* Check your calculation while attempting questions related to annual rainfall in the chapter, ‘Climate of India’.
* Revise frequently asked ‘give reason’ questions.
* Revise the map of India just before your exam begins and attempt the map first thing once your exam starts so that you still remember the markings.
* Write your name and necessary details along with question number and section on the map.
* Read the questions carefully while attempting topography so that you know what is being asked, especially in determining the distance of a place from another or the distance to a place from another. There are also other questions which can be tricky so pay attention to detail.
* Write your answers in points and underline important keywords. Write to-the-point and don’t elaborate unnecessarily.
* Use a pencil for marking things on the map. Shade the regions required (if any) with pencil, ex. polka dots, zig-zag, horizontal and vertical lines, checkered, etc. There’s no need to use different-colored pencils for shading.
* Make sure you include a key if required. Or else, mark the shaded area or symbol with the sub-question number, ex. Q1 is about the map of India and (i) to (x) are the sub-questions: draw an arrow next to the symbol and mark it with the respective sub-question from (i) to (x).
