Maths is a difficult subject to crack for many students. While languages and social science are most often overlooked, maths is one subject that's always given highest attention and yet many students fail to score well in class 10 maths. Knowing the right tips and tricks will do the magic trick for you and simplify your maths.
1) Practice all maths formulae
With just knowing the formulae and simple application of these formulae, you'll be able to solve many questions in your exam. Learn these formulae well by practicing them by writing it down or sticking it to one of your walls in your bedroom where you can constantly have a glance at them.
2) Write step by step solutions
Many students have this bad habit of arriving at conclusive answers without writing the steps clearly. This will lead to cutting down of your marks as your evaluator is instructed to give marks to different steps. So yeah, no rushing to final answers.
3) Practice sums
Reading mathematical sums is the most stupid things you can do while preparing for maths exam. Just going through the sums will not make you an expert. To have expertise, you need to learn the concepts well by thorough practice. Practice all the sums in your maths notes for class 10.
4) Make short notes
Make Last Minute Revision notes in which you'll be writing the summary of the entire chapter in as less words as possible. You can refer maths notes for class 10 prescribed by the CBSE board for doing this. Make sure that you have sufficient time to run a check through these last minute revision notes during your exam.
5) Practice previous examination papers
This will give you hands on experience with writing examination papers and you'll be amazed to see you confidence levels. As you'd have already solved some papers, you'll be aware of the usual examination pattern which keeps you away from anxiety!
6) Do not waste too much time on sums that you fail to solve
There will be some tough sums which you'll find hard to solve. Do not crack your head over this one problem and start solving it n number of times. You must move onto solve other sums in order to save time.
7) Re check your paper before submitting
Re checking your paper is extremely important in maths because you might have missed out writing a step that you very well know. Don't lose a single mark because you failed to re check!
