Did you get very low marks in Physics and finding it too difficult to get pass marks?
Here is a systematic and easy to follow plan to succeed. Just believe me, you can get pass mark by following the instructions religiously.
1. Don’t leave a single question.
During the cool off time go through all the questions and decide the questions known well to you and mark them to attempt in the first round. Then have a look at the questions which may take some time to solve or of which you have some idea but the answer is not completely known. The rest of questions can be kept for third round where you will write an answer with the concepts known to you based on the hints which you may get from the question itself.
Attempting all questions is very important, because if you write an answer there is a chance to get some marks but if you do not write there is no chance of getting any mark for the question.
2. Practice the frequently asked portions
Please go through “MUST PRACTICE PORTIONS FOR CLASS XII” and practise the portions thoroughly.
3. Practice the Diagrams
You can find a list of important diagrams here shortly.
- Electric field lines due to a points charge, a dipole, two negative charges, two positive charges etc.

Download the collection of questions asked in previous CBSE board exams from the chapter Wave Optics.
Practising the previously asked questions is a good idea to prepare for the exams.
How was the CBSE Physics exam?
When the question was asked to teachers and students the response was a mixed one.
Not as expected
Time was not enough
Question paper was lengthy
1 and 2 marks questions were easy
Five marks questions were confusing
Etc … were some of the reactions
How do you feel?
How was the paper?
Respond now. Your response counts. It will also help the teachers and Principal to take up the matter to CBSE authorities.
Very Easy but Very Lengthy
“I appeared yesterday for the respective exam. It was quite surprising for us to see the very easy Physics Exam! I myself had prepared hard for it but the exam was much lengthy especially 3 marks questions. I myself couldn’t attempt 10 marks which i had already realized were quite easy questions. But I have to accept this disappointment now” – Shubham Dhingra
In this busy world everyone wants to save time. Being students, learning is our primary job. To save time, we need to learn faster. But how?
The first step is to have a SMART goal!
S – Specific
M – Measurable
A – Achievable
R – realistic
T – Time Bound
Having a Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic and Time Bound – SMART goal will increase your efficiency to grasp ideas faster.
While all of you may be having a long term goal, usually what you want to become after studies, you should have a short term goal, an objecting for every sitting of your studies too.
Have a Time Table – be specific what to study and when.
In the time slot for each, decide what and how much to study before you start. Know the outcome expected of you as a result of reading the portion. If it is not mentioned already, it is better to have a look at the questions based on the portion at hand before you actually read the topic.
Learn to read fast. Don’t go word by word while you read. Try to grasp a group of words at a go concentrating on the idea contained. Concentrate fully keeping in mind the objectives/ the questions you read based on the portion.
Do not reread or skip back until you have completed
After you have completed the reading check your comprehension by answering the questions.
Practice this daily and try to improve your reading and comprehension skills. This will certainly help you to score more as well as to live well in times to come.
Nowadays, the number of students asking genuine doubts are found decreasing day by day. the main reason behind this is the lack of critical thinking. Think deeply on things you learn, hear and see. find answers to the questions arising in your mind. If you develop the habit of critical thinking, it is certainly help you to excel in exams. As we discussed earlier, “Questioning every answer is more important than answering every question”
How to develop critical thinking?
An easy way to develop the habit of critical thinking is by solving puzzles – Sudoku, crossword puzzles, tiles rearrangement, chess and the like. Try solving the logical reasoning type questions, picture based puzzles and reasoning ability tests etc. asked in various competitive exams.
The logical reasoning tests are helpful not only to excel in cometitive exams, but it will help you in moul;ding your personality also.
I personally advice reading all the works on Sherloke holmes by sir arthur Conan Doyale. the way sherloke holmes comes to various copnclusions will certainly inspoire us in being a keen observer and a critical thinker and more over a great problem solver.
