    Tips to score well in CBSE Class 11 Physics Practical:

    Your performance in Class 11 Physics Half Yearly exam will most likely to affect your Class 11 Physics practical exam’s score. If you have scored well in Half Yearly then most likely you will get good marks and vice versa.

    However, if you will perform exceptionally well in Class 11 Physics Practical then you will definitely get good marks.

    Here are few quick tips for Physics Practical exams:

    • Learn about each & every equipment present in the Physics laboratory.

    • Learn about basic concepts.

    • Thoroughly read the complete theory behind each experiment you have performed in the Physics laboratory.

    • Also, revise whatever your subject teacher had taught you in your Physics class.

    • Understand Graphs: Graphs are an important part of Physics practical exams, students need to practice them.

    • Methodology and Principle are the frequently asked questions during viva so be prepared.

    • In case of any doubt, consult with the teacher or lab attendant.
