I will share some tips to solve exam paper to get better grades in this post. If you will try to apply them before or during exam I am sure that these tips will help you a lot.
I want to add couple of important things before moving to tips to solve exam. Be confident about what you have studied and forget about what you left now, when you are in exam hall. Confidence will help you solve the questions in a better way. But if you will remain tense about what you left you can not even focus on that part properly that you have studied. So be confident before going in Exam Hall.
When you enter in exam hall then do not panic or scared, try to relax take long breath and do not all at once open paper and start solving it. Do not think that what you have studied, you will forget.
Before starting the exam fill in all details that are asked like, name , student ID , session etc.
Now lets talk about the things that you have to do;
Steps to Follow:
First of all try to read paper twice or thrice. When you will see the paper first time then maybe you will feel that everything is washed from your memory but when you will read it for second or third time you will remember the concepts.
Understand asked Question:
Mark the questions that you are confident about. You must understand what teacher is asking from you in given question. Read all the instructions and understand in each question what you are asked then solve. Understanding instructions is very important as sometimes it happens you do not read instruction properly and cannot answer properly.
To save and manage time always try to stick to the points asked and do not try to write something extra.
Copy Question correctly:
Try to copy the question properly from exam question paper , if you will make a minor mistake of signs or another thing the answer will be wrong and you will not get any grade for steps as you are not solving asked question. Try to write in a neat and clean way so teacher can understand what you have written.
When you will solve any mathematical equation or question cross check with calculator and remove mistakes, if any. When you will enter numbers on calculator in math exam then make sure that the entries on calculator are correct with correct signs of numbers.
If you want to cross anything, cross it properly and rewrite in a clean space. While solving question be very careful during copying signs. You can only cross solution in questions where you have option t make mistakes, do not cross in questions where you are forbidden to do so.
Stuck! Move on:
If you are stuck on some question or forgot the formula do not waste your time and move on, solve other questions first and then come back after finishing your rest of exam.
When you are finished review whole paper. First check all the questions, if you have copies correctly and then check your answers. Also check the numbering (number of question) in exam it need to be correct. Also count if you have solved all the question and nothing is left.
Do not leave any question blank, if you are not sure about the answer, just make an attempt of answer, you never know , you can be correct.
If you have prepared well and you solved it properly then no one can stop you from taking grades. All the best.
