Just a day before the exam, here are the things that you need to follow:

Keep A Note Of The List Of Topics

Write down all the important topics on a piece of paper. This will help you revise before the exam. Even if you had forgotten or not prepared the answer, you could still learn to make up for it with a few keywords by either asking a friend or looking at the textbook. Maintaining a note of the topics can help you remember all that you have studied and work on what you have not.

Cover All Important Topics

Since most of the chapters are about electricity and current, understand the fundamentals of electric current well and master all related topics such as:

  • Derivations of Current
  • Ohms Law
  • Formulae
  • Circuit diagrams

Another major chunk of the syllabus is magnetism. Be strong in:

  • Magnetic fields of line (theory and diagram)
  • Formulae
  • Electromagnetic induction related problems and concepts

Other important topics

  • Atomic structures
  • Lenses from Light

Keep Your Accessories Ready

In your bag, keep your hall ticket, scale, pens, pencils, eraser, ink eraser, sharpener, compass, ID card, water bottle ready. Just in case you would feel positive carrying any objects such as lucky pen or a god's photo, you could add that too. Do not search for something in the last minute and waste your time and get anxious.

Do Not Skip Problems

Although studying theory could be easier than the problems part, do not completely ignore problems. Go through some of the important topic related problems as mentioned above and try to understand the logic behind the calculation. You might end up magically solving a problem that you had evaluated to be tough before if you understand the logic right.

Remember Keywords

Physics is a subject that has a lot of definitions and marks will be allocated more for the important keywords than the number of words or the length of your answers. So remember the keywords in every answer. Ideally, highlighting them while studying would help. For your last minute preparation, just consciously focus more on remembering the keywords.

Stay Positive

Staying positive is the prime criteria for you to ace in the exam. The difficulty level of the paper is as follows:

  • 40% easy questions
  • 40% average questions
  • 20% difficult questions

This means that there is an over all easy to average level of difficulty in the paper that will help you to score great marks. The rest will depend on your presence of mind that can be achieved through clear and positive thinking. So stay optimistic throughout and give your best shot.


Maintain Good Sleep Pattern

There is no use of studying all through the night as your body becomes fatigued the next day. Even if you have a lot left to cover, make sure that you have at least six hours of sleep minimum before the exam such that you do not feel sleepy in the exam hall. Make optimum use of today and tomorrow by planning your syllabus right and studying right.
