Students preparing for board exams are cautious always on how to answer each question in the best possible manner and hence would naturally be confused as to do what to tackle this problem. As exams are round the corner, you might feel not prepared despite studying hard for hours for past couple of months. The relief for students comes from the main fact that if they have prepared for competitive exams like NEET or JEE Main 2017, it would be more than sufficient to clear the boards as the syllabus is strikingly similar almost. Hence there is no necessity for further preparation and students should focus on presenting the answers well.
Focus on presenting answers:
It would be ideal if you could write the answers in readable handwriting. The size of the font should not be too large or too small. If the time constraint is not a bothering factor, it would be great to draw lines after every answer which would appeal to the examiner. (Make sure that you are doing this if you have enough spare time).
Keep an eye on time factor:
There is a possibility where students would write slowly while answering the paper at first so as to not compromise on the quality of handwriting and would not have enough time to answer the final questions. It is would be ideal always to remember the fact that every mark from every questions no matter whether they are the last or the first ones. Hence one should maintain a steady pace right from the start. It would be nice if you could devote a minimum of 5 minutes to have a go through the question paper to check the questions in every page is printed properly or not.
Be more precise:
This would mean that quality would always be better than quantity. For questions of 2 to 3 marks one does not have to write an essay in place of short sentences. Hence students should answer to the point and underline them for better readability.
The importance of practice question papers:
To get a clear idea about the pattern of questions, students should work with sample question papers as well as study NCERT Books as this would help them to get an idea to write the apt answers for the given question.
Try not to skip any question:
The usual tendency of most students is that if they would skip to answer the questions they don’t know which might seem beneficial at first but would not deliver fruitful results. Since there is no penalty for a faulty answer, it would be better for students to have an honest try on them as they have literally nothing to lose.
From the above discussion, one could say that answering the questions in the right manner is not an objective task but a subjective one and every question being unique has to be approached differently as they require different style of answering.
