While writing formulas students generally forget to give the meaning of symbols and formula. In order to get full marks, students must explain the meaning of symbols and letters used in the formula. In UP Board Mathematics exam, there are marks for each and every step. In this case, there are marks for writing formula correctly.

In the above ques and its solution student must have to mention and explane each and every point. here you can see y=mx+c(i.e straight line equation), m1 and m2 is slope.So when students are solving these type of question they have to explain the meaning of symbols and letters used in the formula.

**3. Labelling of graphs and diagrams:**

In UP Board exams, there are marks for drawing a neat and clean diagram as well as labelling. Students often forget or skip labelling of diagrams. To get full marks, students should draw neat and clean labelled diagrams.

**Attention:** do not waste time in decorating and shading the diagrams.

You can see this question was asked in UP Board 2013 mathematics question paper,Students can understand how the labelling of diagrams has been done in this question.

**4. Don’t exceed the restricted word limit of the answer:**

While writing answers in UP Board exams students should not exceed the word limit of the answer. Students should give the solutions of the problems within the prescribed word limit. Your answers should be accurate and to the point. Students will not get extra marks for writing extra information besides answer of the question and this may also lead to the wastage of time.

**5. In each and every question, pay special attention while using brackets and symbols:**

Students should be careful while using brackets and symbols. A slight mistake can change the complete meaning of the formula. For example, X = {(a + b) (a ‒ b)} and Y = {(a + b) a ‒ b} have different meaning.

**6. Mismanagement of time: **

Generally students spend too much time upon a particular section or question and not leaving enough time for rest of the questions. Do not spend more than the time on a particular question or section; otherwise you might be stuck and it leaves you struggling to complete the paper. So first divide the time slot for each and every section or question and plan in advance how much time you will dedicate to each section or question.

**7. Copying incorrect data: **

When the time is running out and students are under exam pressure, sometimes students copy the data given from the question paper incorrectly and just because of that they gets confuse in that particular question. So in spite of that take extra care while copying the data as it might save a couple of time during exam.

**Conclusion :** In above mentioned points, proper script, neat handwriting, sequential answer and their sub divided points with highlighted keywords and technical terms with their diagram or graphs(if required) will definitely help in grasping good marks.

**All the best!!**
