CBSE Board 2019: Revision, Examination Tips For Maths Exam

CBSE board exams have begun. Now that the boards have been put into pace, students can not but worry about the upcoming mathematics examination. For class 12th students, mathematics exam is on March 18 and for class 10th students, mathematics exam is on March 7, 2019. Now that there is very little time left for students to revise, we asked for some revision as well as examination tips for students from ex-students which will help students tackle the mathematics question paper.

These tips were shared by Ashish Malik, an ex-student of CBSE, who recently completed MS degree in Statistics from Purdue University, USA.

  1. You should know the exam pattern and topic wise distribution by heart before the final exam.
  2. Use the first fifteen minutes carefully and effectively by going through the question paper at least twice and marking all the questions which seem difficult and leave them for last.
  3. Always answer the questions in numerical order. No one wants to grade an exam which is not in order. Leave the space for the question if you don't know the answer.
  4. Understand the worth of each question. Never spend too much time (5-10 minutes) on 1 or 2 mark question.
  5. Pace yourself according to the duration of the exam. You should be able to finish at least 20 questions by half time. Since watches are not allowed in the examination hall anymore, time yourself on the basis of the clock available in the exam hall. Invigilators also often announce the time left. 
  6. Don't leave any question un-attempted. Write down anything you know about the question even if it is wrong. There is no negative marking so attempting a question, even if you don't know the answer completely, will not hurt.
  7. Tag your supplementary sheets properly.
  8. Question papers are set according to the NCERT books. So, leave all fancy supplementary books behind and just concentrate on NCERT.
  9. Always recheck your calculations.
  10. Try to draw the figures and graphs as clear as possible and write down the question number below it.
  11. Try to finish the exam by 2:30 minutes mark and go through your paper again in the last half an hour.
  12. Find out your weakest areas and solve all the questions specifically from NCERT for that topic.
  13. Always try to attempt the questions in order. Avoid starting with 4 mark questions. Starting the paper with 1 or 2 mark questions helps you gain confidence and set your pace for the rest of the exam. 
  14. Try to solve at least 15-20 sample papers before the final exam and solve them during 10:00-1 pm.
