Tips to write CBSE Class 10 Social Science Exam 2019:
- To begin with, utilise first 15 minutes in thoroughly reading the question paper and preparing a draft in your mind about how you will be writing answers to all given questions in next 3 hours.
- Start with the one mark questions as they will be easy to attempt in less time. Then move on to the 3 markers followed with the long answer type questions which carry 5 marks each. Leave space for the questions which you are not sure about. Writing the paper this way will help to stay organised and keep an idea of how many questions you left unanswered.
- While trying to attempt the questions for which you have no clear answers in brain, try to recall and collect all the related events. If you still can’t remember, leave some space for those answers without wasting much time. It has been observed that while working with other questions, facts related to the unsure questions also get collected in brain. So, you can manage to write answers for such questions later in the exam.
- Do not start your paper with the long answers as it will take most of your time in recalling and writing these answers. Then you will be left with very less time to attempt other short answer type questions which could be written more correctly in less time.
- Do not spend more than 3 minutes on answering a one mark question, 7 - 8 minutes on answering a three marks question and 10 minutes on answering a five marks question.
- Try to attempt long answer type questions in points with writing details against each point.
