A.
It is always better to write all the steps and write the solution to the questions systematically. At times, major steps in the solution are assigned separate marks in the marking scheme. A candidate may lose marks if these specific steps are not written.
Q.
If a choice is given to attempt any one of the questions in the board exam, can we attempt both? If yes, which answer will be considered? — Ravi

A.
The instructions given in the question paper should be followed by the candidate. Attempting both the options takes away precious time. It also confuses the examiner. So it is advised that you should only attempt the option at which you feel confident.
Q.
Are papers such as informatics practices, media studies and financial markets management considered as vocational papers or electives? Is there any rule regarding taking the minimum number of elective papers in order to safeguard one’s chances of getting into a ­college? If one takes two of these papers, will it be counted as part of best of four subjects for DU ­admissions? — Sharda

A.
Informatics practices and mass media are electives offered by the board at the senior school level under the academic stream. Remember, mass media and media ­production is a vocational course that is a package of two ­subjects other than ­language, accountancy or other ­academic electives. Make sure you refer to the scheme of studies for specific courses ­mentioned in the query. Also, please refer to the ­latest admission guidelines for Delhi University.
