For the Class 12 boards, we give you some strategies for acing physics. Always remember that:

# It is easy to score marks from the topics in volume II of the physics book
# Practice diagrams, graphs and numerical examples
# You should cover chapters like Semiconductors (7 marks), Principles of Communication (5 marks), Atoms and Nuclei (6 marks), etc as one gets straight questions from these chapters
# In addition to this, few derivations like Application of Gauss’s Law, Cyclotron, Moving Coil Galvanometer, AC generator should be practiced thoroughly
# Practice ray diagrams (with arrow), circuit diagrams (with current direction) and all the vector quantities with directional representation

Things to remember during the examination
# 51 marks are allotted to three and five mark questions and 15 marks are allotted to the one and two mark questions. Students are advised to make use of the first 15 minutes of reading time
# Answers for one mark questions need to be crisp and to the point
# You should consider writing four points in two mark questions wherever possible.

I made sure that I studied the concepts taught in class on my own and did not mug it up ----- Diya Mahajan, 98% in physics, cbse class XII national merit certificate holder 2014- physics
