  1. Don’t fear about the examinations. Take it as challenge. Prepare psychologically to face it.
  2. First you refer the previous and model question papers. This is the important stage of getting acquaintance with the subject and the theme of the examination.
  3. Read the Text books two or three times and note the important chapters and questions those frequently occur. Understand the meaning of the subject. The subject is remembered for a long time, if it is understood in one’s own mother language.
  4. First read the easy and interested subject, and then hard subject.
  5. Prepare synopsis on important topics. Prepare a code.
  6. Prepare a time-table allotting equal time available to you to all the subjects.
  7. Repeat the tough subjects and tough questions.
  8. Examiner does not see the face of the examinees. He gives the marks depending upon the answers written. Time, i.e. 3 hours, is allotted to all the students. The students who write more and appropriate matter, gets highest marks. Remembering the subject is not at all sufficient. It must be produced in the examination hall within 3 hours, i.e. 180 minutes. General typewriting speed is 25 to 40 words per minute. General handwriting speed in 10 words per minute. Therefore improve your writing speed by daily practicing. Often you get yourself examined, by writing the answers fixing the time for each question, thus improving your speed of writing.
  9. Discuss the subject with your friends. Get the suggestions from your Lectures, whenever required.
  10. Write 16 lines on each page. Give sufficient space on top and bottom. Maintain left and right margins giving sufficient space. When you use several additional sheets, write serial numbers on additional sheets. Each additional sheet contains university serial number. It does not help you to tag your answers sheets. Your own serial number, i.e. 17 to 52 (for example) helps you to tag the answer sheets in serial. If the answer sheets are not tagged, your answers become zigzag and lose valuable marks.
  11. Whenever necessary put the side headings, sub-headings and top-headings.
  12. If you remember correctly, then only write the definitions and quotes. Otherwise, it is better to write the contents. Remember all the important definitions and quotes.
  13. Prepare a time-table allotting equal time to all answers to be written, and write the answers accordingly. Example: You have to answer six questions out of ten. First you select the questions with pencil which you want to answer. Then you start writing the answers allotting 30 minutes for each answer. You can do justice to all the answers. If you write the first questions for 50 or 60 minutes, it means you will lose one question time, and in the ending you will get worry and anxiety to complete the questions. Prevention is better than cure. However in the examination hall there is no chance to cure at the ending time of 3 hours.
  14. Preference shall be given to short-notes, which fetch more marks.
  15. Writing must be legible, bold, attractive and without spelling mistakes.
  16. Divide the answers in paragraphs. Concluding remarks enhance the value of the answer.
  17. Don’t waste the time before the Examination, and in the Examination Hall.
  18. Don’t leave the Examination Hall until the last minutes. Verify all the answers, answer sheets and tag the answer sheets serially and properly.
