The model answer script shared by the Board gives a fair idea on "how to answer a question" with a concise description, proper handwriting and a proper layout. Students can also learn the basic etiquette of writing an answer paper which includes proper spacing between two answers, marking the important points of the answer, specifying the question number in a different indent so that it is convenient for the examiner to evaluate.
For mathematics paper, students should understand the different steps involved in a mathematical equation or a Boolean algebra. Answers to questions related to area, volume, surface area, Pythagoras theorem, etc. should have a properly labelled figure. Every mathematical sum should end with a conclusion statement supporting the final answer.
