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.

Do you already use these tips? Or, do you have better ones? Let us know in the Comments section below. 🙂

 

Civics: The Judiciary (NOTES)


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 weren’t 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 we are delighted to be finally publishing them. Do make use of them!

 

 

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

You may print these notes through the PDF file and refer to them as required. We would appreciate it if you abstain from reproducing any part of these notes without our prior permission. For more information, please contact us. Thank you.

 

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.

History: First War of Independence, Nationalism, and More! (NOTES)


One of our readers, Mr. Urav Maniar, was kind enough to share notes on History which he compiled by himself.

In his own words,

“Just trying to repay and say thanks for all notes I have availed from the blog.”

Thank you, Urav! We highly appreciate your initiative. These are some of the neatest and most organized notes we have come across and we’re sure that they will help fellow students immensely.

Notice: Share your experiences with us!


Hi there, everyone!
Hope you all are doing good and are geared up for the new academic year! 😃

Remember me saying something about your experiences in tenth grade in a previous post?
Well, I think the time has come to actually come out and ask YOU to share YOUR STORIES with us.
I’m sure all our readers, especially current and future tenth grade students of ICSE, would love to hear more about how you endured tenth grade, what made it interesting, what lessons you learned, any tips you want to share, and of course, how your experiences were regarding not only the actual exam, but also the result and what happened when and if you sent it for revaluation.

And if you have more to share, we’d love to hear about it! 😃

Do take some time to send us brief recounts of your experiences living life as a tenth grade student of ICSE through our Share Your Story!” form.


Remember,

Thank you and stay connected! Looking forward to hearing from you. 😊💛
