Board exam 2021: 8 Common mistakes You Should Watch out for
1. Never forget to attempt any question.
2. Write any assumptions you make. Teachers check hundreds of different answer scripts. So, clearly specify what assumption you are taking and WHY.
3. Attempt all question of a section in some order. Don’t create a mess.
4. Write proper SI units wherever applicable.
6. No over-writing.
- one marks : 1–2 lines
- two marks : half a page
- three marks : half-three fourths of a page
- four marks : a page
- six marks : three-four pages
This is generally for theoretical papers. Sometimes, 6 marks can be finished in 1 page or so. And 3 marks might take 2 pages.
7. Stop and don’t study from someone else’s notes. Make your own. Don’t be lazy.
8. Don’t save things that need cramming for the end. These are certain things that get you marks for free so do them much before the exam (revision becomes cakewalk)
