Last Minute Preparation Tips For CBSE Class 12 Chemistry Exam

Allocate Time Wisely

Divide your subject into organic and inorganic chemistry and assign time to each. If theory part is easy, finish it real quick and then spend sufficient time for organic chemistry that has equations and bonds. If you think you are pretty good at theory already, then start with organic part first and keep the latter hours for revising the inorganic part.

Be Strong With Fundamentals

If you do not understand the basics, you might end up cursing the whole syllabus. So, it is wise that you thoroughly study the basics of organic chemistry, so that you could arrive at logical calculations even if you don't have time to thoroughly go through each section.

Connect With Practical Lessons

Given that your practical exams are already over, you now already possess a good understanding of the chemical reactions. So visualise the colours and the appearance of the chemicals whenever you study equations or bonds. Visualisation will help you develop an association with the subject.
