Tips and tricks to help you during the Exam:
1. Write Neatly:
You should keep in mind that the examiner has to understand every step of your answer and in most of the cases he would not be having much time to spend on a single answer. Avoid overwriting and write very neatly in your answer sheet.
2. Mention clear steps in your Answer:
Whenever you go through an answer, ensure to pay special attention to the steps that helped you to reach out to get the answer. You cannot simply write the answer and get full marks in Maths, you have to mention each and every step clearly. Instead of all this, learn the steps involved. You will definitely secure some marks for each step.
3. Attempt what you know first:
Read the question paper thoroughly before you begin to solve the questions. Mark the questions that you think will not take much time and attempt them first. In order to score high in Maths, you must attend the questions you know and then move on to the unfamiliar ones.
4. Draw Graphs
Using graphs and figures can help you to score more marks if you make them with concentration, accuracy and neatness. For this, you will need a ruler and a sharpened pencil. These are some of the simplest things that you should not forget to carry as they play a vital role in fetching marks.
