How to time manage time in Board Exam

Practice writing quickly: You can try your hand at solving more and more practice papers, sample papers and past years’ exam papers. Select a time limit for each question and try to adhere to the same and then check if you are able to complete your paper within the preset time constraints. You have to work on your writing speed while keeping your handwriting legible. If you won’t work on your writing speed before the exam, you might be surprised at how difficult it is to write quickly and neatly under the pressure of the time limit on the main day. Your messy handwriting in the answer script will surely annoy the person marking your paper before even checking the whole answer. So if you don’t want to undersell yourself, work out a way to write quickly and neatly.
Prioritise the questions: After reading the whole question paper thoroughly, mark the questions which you are more confident about and are sure to complete those questions in less time. After solving such questions, you can use the remaining time to attempt other questions that seem to be complex to you.
Be realistic with each answer:  Assign each question a fixed time so that you can manage your time to complete the paper. Get an idea that what sort of answers you can realistically write in the time you’ve got. For example: If you’ve got 45 minutes for an essay question, check if you can fit in an introduction, main points and a conclusion within that time limit. Avoid writing useless text which does not relate to what has been asked in the question. Keep your answers apt and informative.
