Is a student failing his/her school exams detained from taking Class 10 and 12 board exams?
 — Shikha

It is always helpful to study regularly throughout the year. If a student does not perform well in internal examinations, the school is expected to provide remedial academic inputs and help the student improve performance. The school is required to justify and give exact reasons as per the examination bylaws of the CBSE in case of any student not being allowed to appear in the board exam.

Which are the most common mistakes to avoid in the Class 12 physics board exam.
 — Aakriti

It is always better to write exact and to the point answers in order to save time. This will enable you to complete the paper within the allotted time. Do not forget to write SI units of physical quantities in numericals, particularly while writing the answer. Diagrams, ray diagrams and circuit diagrams need to be drawn properly and labelled. The answer to questions of five marks weightage needs to be written exactly according to the language of the question.
