Is it really possible to score 300+ in Biology?

- Familiarity with syllabus
- NCERT book
- Thorough revision

Having trouble with Chemistry?
Fret no more! 45 questions carrying a total of 180 marks are asked and it has been noticed in previous years’ papers that at least 12-13 questions come from each sub-unit on most occasions.

Physics preparation tips
When it comes to Physics, students tend to falter in this section even before attempting the questions. How should they then tackle it if they are to ace the exam?
- Learn your formulas
- Understand concepts
- Solve numericals
- Thorough revision

What are the parameters upon which your score depends?
Unlike what most people think, rigorous learning and practice, alone can’t get you to your best score. Your exam score is built on 3 parameters:
- Academic Proficiency - Conceptual clarity and the ability to apply what you know form 61% of your score.
- Test Taking Proficiency - How you perform in the final 3 hours, irrespective of whatever you may have done in 2 years of study/preparation, determines the remaining 39% of your score. Skills like section level time management, attempt strategy, question selection are an important part of it.
