Points to keep in mind: CBSE Class 12 exams to begin in 2 days


The Central Board of Secondary Education Class 12 examinations 2019 will commence from February 15 till April 4. The board has released admit cards that can be collected by students from their respective schools. It is mandatory to carry the admit card on the exam days. In order to outshine in the exams, students must note the important points stated below:

• Set a timetable for revision.
• Take out some time for meditation.
• Underline all the sub-headings. Presentation matters.
• Answer the question as it is asked.
• For mathematics, make notes of formulae and solve as many sums as possible. Practice is the key to success.
• For better preparation, refer latest CBSE sample question papers and the previous year question papers.
• Identify a limited number of direct questions which frequently come in the exams & prepare them well.
• Use the marks each question carries as a guide to how long the answer is required to be. This will save a lot of time which can be used while writing a long-answer question.
• Begin answering the questions to which you know the answers well.
• Do not leave any question unanswered. Try to attempt all the questions.
• Try and write answers in points with a heading and a brief explanation.
• In case a question asks you to explain the process involved, write all the steps involved irrespective if the marks allotted to that question.
• You should also be careful to not spend too much time on 1 question. This would less time for others.
• While answering the case studies, start with questions first and think what the case is looking for.
• Draw a flowchart/diagram in support of your answer, wherever possible especially for questions with weightage of 5 and 6 marks.
• Read the question at least twice before answering. Sometimes, tricky questions can be identified this way.
• Avoid writing irrelevant points.
• While writing an answer, focus on the nature of the question.
• In case you are unable to recollect an answer to a question, do not spend too much time on it. Answer the others first and come back to it later.
• Check and double-check once you have written the answers.
• Always keep some time for revision.

Wishing all the students the very best for their board examinations!
