CBSE Class-12 Math on March 21: Here're some last-minute tips
Math is a strange subject: for many, it is the most important one which can boost overall marks. At the same time, it is the sole source of dread for numerous others.
Here's how you can manage preparations smoothly at the last minute.
Things to keep in mind while preparing
Focus on revising all concepts and formulae and be clear about their usage.
Emphasize on the NCERT textbook. This is from where most questions are sourced. However, practice from other books too.
Practice sample papers and previous years' question papers within the prescribed time limit.
In the exam, it's better to attempt the questions you know first, so you don't end up wasting time.
Here's how to get the most out of your study-hours
Practice is of utmost importance. Solve sums in due process, there's step-marking involved.
While working on a new chapter, ensure you keep practising sums from previous ones so that the concepts remain fresh in your mind.
Long-answer questions generally come from Algebra, Calculus, Three-Dimensional Geometry, Probability, and Relations and Functions. Prepare accordingly.
Lastly, don't hesitate to contact your teacher in case of any doubt.
Here are some last-minute tips
Try to review your notes on the morning of the exam.
Do not forget your admit card and the additional stationery items needed in your math exam.
Spend the 15 minutes that you get for reading the question paper in arranging which ones you would attempt first.
Remember: the key to doing well in math is practice, practice and more practice. Good luck!
