Preparation Tips

  • If you feel you are not good at Chemistry, start early. Start reading your text book as soon as possible.
  • Do not try to rush and finish the chapters. Know that reading a book that deals with scientific concepts, theory and reactions is different from a novel or a comic.
  • Follow up your text book concepts with a reference book to gain a deeper understanding of the topic.
  • Start attending classes and laboratory lectures. Perform each and every laboratory experiment.
  • Try and grasp the concepts and always ask questions. Make a list of unanswered questions and ask discuss them with a teacher or a peer.
  • Do not ignore numerical problems. Most of the times, the problems are direct application of the formulae in use, and, at times are mixed with your understanding of a topic. The numerical problems, if mastered are a good way to score marks.
  • After you finish your syllabus, revise as many times as possible.

Tips for scoring good marks
