5 Ways to Tactically Score in Physics Board Exam

By Malavikka

Physics is an interesting subject when one understands the practical application of the concepts in the textbook. Some challenges such as numerical problems and hard to understand concepts might disturb the students' confidence and dedication towards the subject while preparing for the board exams. Here are some ways to break the barriers and score successfully:

5 Ways to Tactically Score in Physics Board Exam

Relate the Concepts

When some concepts are difficult to understand, there is a trick to by heart it in a different way. Say, it is about the functioning of the microwave, where molecules are in a collision or about the working of a nuclear reactor. Try to relate it to real time incidents or people by relating each component of the equipment to each one of them and how they handle a given situation with respect to the device's functioning.

Experiment Theory

Some concepts such as Newton's Laws and Archimede's Principle are easy to try out. Trying out such things would make the process of learning an exciting experience. For instance, just throw a ball on a wall and observe how it bounces back. This is an example for Newton's law that states "Every reaction has an equivalent and opposite reaction." It is easier to imagine the concepts, but when you try it out, you are sure to never forget it, as you actually got involved in the concept already.

Problem with Problems?

Problems are one section that most students would dislike and try to avoid since it involves complex understanding. In order to deal with this, pick out the concept behind each question. For instance, if the problem is related to velocity, first understand the clear meaning of the term and re-read the question again. A clear understanding of the question would give you a better clarity in mind and help you gain presence of mind to solve the problem even if you had not even studied the method to clear it.

If you get comfortable with one type of question, try to solve similar questions, so that you find yourself involved in them and gain interest to try out more sums.

Time your Answers

Are you good at objective type questions or long answers? Whichever you know the best, put it in the first. This firstly, gets you the satisfaction of having given your best to whatever you have studied. For those questions that you are not comfortable with, allocate enough time to think over it and write it at a steady pace. Do not panic even if you have forgotten what you had studied. Physics is more about common sense and your basic knowledge than anything else. So think calmly and write it within the set time.

Focus on Strengths

Are you good at drawing? Then, without fail, study the circuits and other diagrams as you have a greater scope of impressing the examiners with your presentation. If you are better at writing than drawing, maintain a neat handwriting throughout the answer sheet and avoid last minute scribbling. If you are good at neither of it, then alternately use blue and black pens to highlight the important points and convey your answers to its best.
