Q. What can I do to score only the passing marks in my CBSE class 12 Board Exams?
Ans. Many students like you intend to just pass class 12 for the sake of completing a step in their academic career and do not bother about the marks obtained. But I would suggest you guys to think high as your result in class 12 can decide your future career prospects. Never mind, let’s get to your problem.
Actually, passing in class 12 is not a big deal. You just need to score 33% in each subject, which is much easier if you have PCM stream. With PCM stream you would probably have scored that much scores in your practical exams which means around 28-29 marks are already secured in Chemistry and Physics but along with this you also need to secure at least 23 marks which doesn’t seem to be that tough if you focus on 3-4 important chapters which altogether make 23 marks. Thus, even if you just pass the theory papers for Chemistry and Physics theory, later on when the practical marks are added to theory marks, then you could get a total around 50% easily.
Try to practice the previous year papers since every year, many questions get repeated or the same questions are asked in a skewed manner.
In Chemistry learn all the important name reactions by heart. Same way, learn all the formulas and important terms used in Maths and Physics. Just prepare about 4-5 important chapters in Maths and Physics to secure around 33-35 marks. Now let’s come to English where you just need to study literature. If you succeed to just mug up the chapters then you are assured of securing around 40 marks in English. Same criteria you can follow for other subjects.
