History: Last-minute Tips


Here are a few last-minute tips for writing your History exam:

 

  • Write your answers in points and underline important keywords. Write to-the-point and don’t elaborate unnecessarily.
  • Use the fifteen minutes at the beginning of your exam very carefully. Take the time to decide which questions you wish to attempt and prioritize them. Keep in mind which one you will keep as an “extra,” in case you realize that you may not be able to do justice to a question which you had earlier decided to attempt. However, to ensure that doesn’t happen, use those fifteen minutes well!
  • Make sure you only mention the date if and when you are absolutely sure of it being correct. If not, it’s better to not write the date. (For example, it’s better to only write “The First War of Independence” instead of “The First War of Independence, 1875” or “The Revolt of 1875″… You get my point.)
  • Go through the important dates. If you haven’t made a list of the important dates yourself, you can always go through our own list here.
  • Also go through the names of the various leaders and their contributions. Revise who the Moderates and Radicals were, who brought about what major change, etc.
  • Make sure you are also able to associate the names of the various leaders with their photographs. During our tenth grade, our History teacher told us that it is possible that they may ask us to identify the national leader from the photograph. So, don’t forget to go through the photographs of important national leaders such as the Moderates and Radicals, etc.

 

Though there’s still time left, hope you do well in your exam! Keep visiting for more such tips! 🙂

History: Important Dates (NOTES)


The following PDF contains a list of important dates in Indian History and World History. Please go through them. I cannot ensure that dates other than the ones mentioned in the list will not be asked. However, the list contains those dates which are most likely to be asked in the exam.

The highlighted dates are probably not in syllabus. However, I was not so sure hence, I have included them as well.

 

Here’s a link to the PDF file for the aforementioned notes:

UPDATE (as on 10.01.17): 

As rightly pointed out by a reader, NK, there is a discrepancy in the above notes. Instead of

1883 – Indian National Congress was founded,”

it should read

1883– Indian National Conference was held.”

Please take note of the same. Thank you.

 

Do check out the notes! 🙂
