How to score 90% in Class 12

There are mainly 2 major factors that will decide how you score in your Class 12 board exams.

  1. How thoroughly you have revised the syllabus?
  2. How excellent you can answer the questions that are asked in the examination?

Point 1 –

The whole syllabus should be revised thoroughly. Making various notes covering the whole syllabus, daily study, revision and going through the notes again and again are some of the factors that can help you score a 90% in Class 12 Board Exams. You should evaluate your own mistakes and work harder in whatever you are weak at. Be it a chapter or the whole subject, if you feel that you are weak at it then you should devote more time at it. Leaving the revision for the last minute is biggest blunder that one can do. The last few days before the exam are the time for relaxing your body and mind. Therefore, a fatigued body and a tired mind can never give you good results.

Point 2 –

Read questions, understand what is asked before attempting to answer. Most students read only half the question and end up giving the wrong answer. It is best to answer in points. Everything should be jotted down neatly, so the examiner looks at your responses and knows that you have answered all that there was to answer.

    Using your own expressions and also quoting from the book is very important while answering the questions. However, if you quote too much from the book, then this may also give the impression that you have just memorized everything without even actually understanding the story, essay or the poem.
