History: First World War (Notes Part 3)


As mentioned in our previous post where we shared notes on the Judiciary System of India, one of our dedicated readers who prefers to go by the name hystericalselcouth sent us her handwritten notes way back in May last year, but because of some technical difficulties, we were not able to convert the notes in the form that we usually share on the blog. We are indebted to her for the pain she took in scanning her notes and are delighted to be finally publishing them. Hope they help you in your exam preparations!

 

Here’s a link to the PDF file for the above-mentioned notes:

More notes on History and Civics by hystericalselcouth will be published in the coming months. Do check them out and let us know your feedback on the same.

Quick-Tips_1

Tip of the Day #10


Happy Gandhi Jayanti, everyone! We are back with our “Tip of the Day” post.

 

Tip of the Day: Use the fifteen minutes that you get at the beginning before you start to attempt the paper to go through the paper, analyze it, and choose which questions you will attempt.

We have all heard our teachers say this numerous times. But, how exactly do you decide which questions to attempt and which ones to leave?

Here’s a little something to guide you.

DO attempt:

1. Those questions to which you know the answer; you are 101% sure of the answer. (Don’t even spend that much time reading or answering these questions in your mind during those fifteen minutes. Once you are sure you know the answer, start reading  the next question.)

2.Those questions which carry less marks but regarding whose answers you are a bit doubtful vis-a-vis those questions which carry more marks but regarding whose answers you are a bit doubtful.

3. Those questions that can be written in points and for which each point will carry one mark. (Hence, even if you only recall 3 out of 4 points, you will be able to score more than attempting a 4 mark question wherein you are supposed to describe something or write in paragraphs and wherein if you misinterpret the question or start off wrong, then the entire answer may become incorrect. We want to avoid such situations.)

 

DO NOT attempt:

1. Those questions whose answers you do not know. (This one is a no-brainer.)

2. Those questions which confuse you, i.e. you cannot make out what the question is asking. 

3. Those questions which you feel can be interpreted in more than one way or which you think has more than one answer. (You can try writing both answers and see how well that goes down with the examiner, but then, the risk is all yours.)

 

Hope this quick post helps you make better decisions during those crucial fifteen minutes at the beginning of the paper.
