No matter how well you prepare for the exam, but if you are not able to write down all your knowledge in the right way on the examination day, all your hard work goes in vain. Actually, it is a well-observed fact that students often become nervous and anxious while sitting in the examination hall. The pressure is so overwhelming that they tend to forget what they had learned during their exam preparations. Though it is natural for all, the situation can be made easy by following a few useful tips while sitting in the examination hall and writing your paper.
Board Exam 2023: Why Experts Consider Writing Practice Most Crucial for High Score
Here are some tips and strategies that will help you attempt your exam in the best possible way.
1. Use of the additional 15 minutes judiciously
CBSE provides its students with an additional 15 minutes time for the board examinations. This additional time is provided for students to read the questions properly before they start writing. Students can draft a plan in their minds about how they will solve the paper correctly without getting panicked. So, students must utilise these 15 minutes very carefully to make a strategy for writing their exam smoothly and correctly.
2. Set the priority
List out the questions in which you are more confident. There’s no need to write the answers in the same order as in the question paper. Firstly, write those answers which you know correctly. This will help you gain confidence and will also help you spare enough time to think about the answers to other questions which are a bit blur in your mind.
3. Write brief, to the point answers
Read a question carefully and understand the sense of the question. Try to limit your answer to the requirement of the question and avoid writing huge paragraphs describing unuseful information. Keep your answers left justified.
For example: If you are asked the question- “Define soil erosion”, then you are asked to write the definition of soil erosion, not its causes or effects which most of the students write in order to make their answer lengthier. Actuslly, its a mith among most of the students that the longer the answer the more they will score. But it’s absolutely absurd as the examiner only looks for valid explanations, but not the stories.
4. Choose questions wisely
Usually, some questions in the paper are provided with internal choices. The student has to select any one of those choices. But the tricky thing with these choices is that students often decide on instinct which question to attempt and later they regret not choosing the other question which they knew better. This happens because of haste. When it comes to you to choose the questions you want to attempt, give a careful reading to each question at least twice and then create a mental picture of what you have to write in each case. This way you will be able to evaluate your knowledge about the particular question and help you clear away any doubts.
5. Attempt all the questions
We know that there is no negative marking for wrong answers in board exams. So don’t be afraid to answer the questions about which you are confused, as you have nothing to lose. Read the question very carefully. Re-read the question. Try to understand the genre of the question and what it demands. If you know the answer, then write it. If you don’t, then use your brain and make a smart guess. Examiners are always looking for technical terms or appropriate keywords where they may give you marks.
6. Don’t decorate the answer sheet
It is well observed among many students that they have a habit of attempting their question paper in a colourful manner by using blue, green and black coloured pointers or markers for headings and underlining each one of them. Doing this decorative work is nowhere going to gain you any extra marks but will definitely take away the precious time that you could have used in thinking and writing the answers to questions that you left for the end. Use only two pens; a blue pen for writing the text and a black for headings. While drawing diagrams, you must always use a pencil. It would keep your answer sheet simple and would also give you time to write more.
7. Space out each word properly
Make sure your words are properly spaced out. Don’t squeeze in ten words in the same line. Examiners will find it difficult to read such overlapped words. This may cause a fall in your grades. Your paper should look neat and clean. Try to write the answers in points. Avoid bunching all sentences together. Leave at least two lines before and after each question. Doing this will also help you later when you feel you want to add something to your answer.  This will prevent you from making your answer script messy.
