Here are some of the essential tips which you must keep in mind while writing answers in the exam hall.
Select your options wisely: In certain subjects, you will be provided alternatives for a question. Choose which question you will attempt wisely. Do not hurry and make your choice smartly.
Read questions carefully: Before you begin writing answer, read question carefully. See what is being asked in the question. In case of Mathematics, make sure that you have got the numbers and figures right.
Use easy language: While writing your answer, make sure that you use easy to understand language. An examiner will rather be impressed by a conceptual answer written in simple language than with one without any conceptual language but written in flowery language.
Follow word count: For questions, specially in language and literature papers, where word count for the answer is provided, stick to word count. Do not over exceed the word limit. Also do not be a miser and wrap up your answer in very less word count.
Be neat and clean: Write your answer in a clean and legible handwriting. Not everyone has a beautiful handwriting but anyone can write answers with proper space and punctuation and in a legible handwriting. Remember that if your answer sheet is not clean and handwriting illegible, it will be unfavorable to you. Use margin wherever necessary and in case of diagrams and maps, label clearly.
Do not use slangs: Avoid using slangs. Remember that written English is different from spoken English. Using slang words or SMS language will be counted as spelling mistake and you will be penalized for the same.
Revise your answers: Usually the question papers are set in such a way that even after attempting all the questions, students should be left with 5-10 minutes in the end to revise their answers. Do not waste your time and revise all your answers.
