In our previous post at : HSC Study Tips to Crack HSC Exams , we had mentioned some tips for cracking the HSC Maharashtra board English exam, which I have recapped below :
How to study English ?
• Focus on the grammar part
• Choose a good reference book.
• Read from the prescribed book or from the solved papers.
• Work on your time management skills. You do not want to run out of time due to a lengthy paper
• Watch English movies, English books, English novels and English newspapers.
•Practice writing in English and note down your mistakes and work more on your mistakes
Since english is one of the most dreaded subject for HSC students, we decided to give you some last minute tips to score some easy marks.
1.) In the summary section, you get 1 mark out of 5 for just putting a title. So just put any simple title and voila, you have scored atleast 1 our of the 5 marks. For the rest 4 marks, do not copy paste the same thing but write it in your own words and you are sure to score well.
2.) In the comprehension section, write only 1 sentence for 1 mark questions. Why waste time writing more when 1 sentence is enough to score full marks?
3.) For the tree diagram, use only pencil to draw the branches. However you can use a pen inside the box, but make sure you are writing in capital letters only.
4.) ‘Tourist Leaflet’ section will get you one mark for just drawing a text box and writing within that. However, if you miss the text box, you may lose a mark. Within the text box, write in bullet points only.
Remember, English is a lengthy paper so your focus must be to finish the paper on time and not leave any section unanswered.
Today, we are going to share important questions bank that you must definitely go through before you take the English paper tomorrow.
1.) Solve all writing skill related exercise from textbook.
2.) Solve all grammar related exercise from textbook.
3.) That’s it. You will score well if you just do the above 2 !
If you want to cover the subject faster, then
- Read 2-3 Poems and relevant comprehension questions
- Same for Passages and Rapid Readers
- Last 2-3 Years Essays topics Find relevant Information from Internet
- Basic 10th Std. Grammar
If you have some time, buy Navneet 21 set and go through it once. You can study for just 5-6 hours a day before the exam and still manage to score above 70+ as it is a very scoring subject. [/sociallocker]
