May 12 May 11 Be a master at multitasking. May 10 Become a Student Entrepreneur. Apr 29 Take a few minutes to plan your answer; it will definitely help you write better answers. If you have to write an essay, try to have an introduction, main points and a conclusion.
A strong conclusion will attract the one who corrects your answer sheet. Try to cover both sides of an argument; never answer questions from just one perspective. Build your opinion in the main body of your answer sheet and conclude with a critical analysis. Most of the students choose to write a straightforward answer, but this approach, in reality, will not fetch you more marks.
By practising previous papers you will get an idea about how to represent the answer or how to approach a question. It's not just about writing an answer, it's about how to create a perfect structure for your answer and what sort of information will fetch you more marks in the exam. Most of the students never check their answer booklets after completing their exam. Checking your answers will help find unintentional spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and you can also add some extra points to your answers.
Proofreading your answers during the last few minutes can do wonders; you can add quotations and draw quick diagrams relevant to the topics. Majority of the candidates do not give any value to handwriting and they take it very lightly.
But the fact is that good handwriting will help you gain extra marks in the exam. Make sure your handwriting is viable, easy to read and neat, which will make the examiner check your answer sheet generously. If you are looking to improve your score in the exam, then don't write unnecessary stuff in your answer sheet.
Quality and relevant content play a vital role in fetching good marks in the exam. Most of the students believe that they will get a good score if they increase the quantity of the answers, but it is not true, the examiner will allot marks based on the quality of the content, not quantity. These are some of tips to write answers in an impressive way. Implement these tips while writing your answers and score more marks. By Navya Pasupuleti. For Quick Alerts. Subscribe Now.

Before entering the exam hall, your mind should be trained to quickly identify the nature of the question. In the 3 hours you get, more time must be spent on thinking about the answer, not on questions. Most aspirants go to exam hall without knowing the subtle differences between directive words and end up giving a very general answer that would fetch only average marks.

This is possible only if you answer more number of questions and more accurately. Introduction is a must. It is the best part of the answer where you tell the reader what is awaiting him in next few paragraphs. You must state your thesis in a clear statement.

So what is the way forward? Tips For Writing A Better Answer Two important factors decide the good outcome of your answer: one, understanding the question completely. Examine and Critically Examine When you are asked to examine, you have to probe deeper into the topic, get into details, and find out the causes or implications if any.
Your opinion may be for or against, but you must back your argument with evidences. Example, Critically comment on the extent, scope and implications of Non Communicable Diseases in India. Analyze and Critically Analyze When asked to analyze, you have to examine methodically the structure or nature of the topic by separating it into component parts and present them as a whole in a summary.
Evaluate When you are asked to evaluate, you have to pass a sound judgement about the truth of the given statement in the question or the topic based on evidences. Example, Has the RTI made a noticeable impact on our governance system? Discuss This is an all-encompassing directive — you have to debate on paper by going through the details of the issues concerned by examining each one of them.
Example, Discuss the contentious issues that have caused the prolonged constitutional logjam in Nepal. There is a way. But it requires hard work. This will enable you to impress in the exam by dropping in extra facts and insights that other students in your class may not have covered. Get hold of some practice papers and sit them under exam conditions, giving them to a teacher to mark afterwards.
This will help you become accustomed to the format the exams will take, allowing you to get the hang of timings and enabling you to start to predict the styles of questions you can expect in the real thing. Find out exactly what the examiners are looking for by having a thorough read of the mark scheme for each of your subjects and noting what sorts of things are awarded extra points and whether points are deducted for anything.
Looking at the syllabus should also give you an indication of the full range of topics you may be questioned on, so that nothing comes as a surprise when you turn over the question paper. At this stage, if you spot an area that you think needs work, ask a teacher for advice. If you followed the above tips, by the time you reach the 12 to 24 hours before your exam, you should be feeling confident with your level of knowledge, as well as how to deploy that knowledge effectively.
Your focus now switches to physical and mental preparation for the exam itself. Porridge is a good thing to have as it releases its energy slowly, keeping you going throughout the morning and stopping hunger pangs from distracting you during your exam.
Thoughts like these can become self-fulfilling prophecy, so instead, try to fill your mind with positive thoughts. Keep a level head and read on for some indispensable tips for effective exam technique. Before you begin the exam, read the whole question paper very carefully, and then read it again.
Choose the questions you think you can score the most points in, and remember that these may not necessarily be the ones that appear to be on the topics you know most about. Circle the questions you plan to answer. Beware of doing this; use your time effectively by only including relevant material, as concisely as possible. To help you do this, make a very quick essay plan before you start, outlining a rough structure and areas you want to cover.
One or two examples briefly cited will be enough to support your point, without wasting valuable time. Focusing on something else for a bit should help clear your mental block and leave you with fresh inspiration for the problem question. If you find you have time left over, use it to read through your answers and possibly add extra paragraphs if additional points occur to you. It will only fill you with insecurity and doubt, possibly hampering your performance in other exams that you may have looming.
Put your notes for that topic away in a drawer, without opening them, and forget about them. But if, on results day , your suspicions are confirmed, all is not lost: you can always retake a paper as a last resort.
