Preparation Tips

  • Go through your text book. It is the most important book for Physics board exam of class 12. All topics in the syllabus for the exam are covered in the text book
  • Do not forget to mention the S.I units (if any) of all physical entities. (Exception: Focal Length of lens in cm and for physical optics use nanometer)
  • Make a complete list of derivations, formulae and experiments in your syllabus and keep that list handy.
  • Go through the book extensively and ask your teacher or a friend for help, in case you have any doubt in any topic.
  • While solving a derivation, try and comprehend the logic behind the derivations.
  • Revise the concepts regularly.
  • Put More focus on new topics. Like numerical in semi- conductors and Kirchhoff’s law with three cells etc.
  • After you finish your syllabus, solve questions from specimen papers.

Tips for scoring good marks

  • During the exam, try to write your descriptive answers in points and give pictorial or graphical illustrations wherever possible.  It enhances visibility.
  • Scan the paper before answering.
