I am in Class 12 and I practise Math the most. Despite this, my performance in this subject is still the worst. I’ve been practising a lot and doing a lot of sample papers. But I now feel very apprehensive about the subject. Please help.

In Mathematics, understanding the concept is very important. If you practise without understanding, then there is a chance of your not doing well in the examination. You are suggested to put in a lot of practice in mathematics but not without understanding the concepts.

I’m a Class 12 science student. I still have a few topics remaining in Physics, with optics being the primary one. Since it is very important, can you please tell me how to prepare optics with less than two weeks to go
for the exam?

For important topics, please read the chapter given in the NCERT book. Besides, you should also read the summary given at the end of the chapter in the book. This will help you in understanding and doing well in the examination.

I am a student of class 10 and I’m weak in both science and math. My first exam is of science but I haven’t prepared much in Math as well. I don’t know which to prepare first. I still have nine topics in Math and eight topics in science pending. Please suggest me how to prepare the subjects.

Please understand the important concepts of the chapters of your syllabus in both science and mathematics. Sample question papers are available on CBSE website. Please practise these papers and also ask your teachers to make available more question papers based on the prescribed syllabus and the question papers design for practise.

I have completed TS Grewal for accountancy. What more shall I do to score in the 95 to 100 per cent bracket? Also, we don’t have any information about the mass media studies subject and the sample papers are not related to the way we were taught. Please guide me.

As far as textbooks in accountancy are concerned, CBSE recommends only the NCERT books. In order to get good marks in the subject, get lots of practise. Especially, understand the implication of various accounting entries. Consult sample question papers and previous years’ question papers uploaded on the CBSE website.
All the necessary information about the teaching and learning of the mass media studies, has been provided to the teachers. The sample question papers were also designed by the teachers and after requisite changes by the experts, sent to all the schools offering this elective. The Board has also conducted a programme where external experts assessed the portfolio as well as the project developed by the students. Contact your teacher regarding specific inputs.

I am a commerce student of Class 12. In the business studies exam, how do I divide my time among the various questions, especially the six-markers, so that I can complete my paper within the time limit?

There are five questions of six marks each in the business studies question papers of class XII. Such questions, on an average, need to be completed within nine to 10 minutes each. However, the length of the question depends on the action verb of the particular question. For example, questions with explain, describe or analyse, may require more time than enumerate, state, among others.
