Exam Tips for Attempting the Paper

To score well in this exam, you should know the ways to write the paper. Below are some best exam tips on how to attempt the paper.

1) The 15-minutes reading time: In the exam, students get 15 minutes of reading time. So, thoroughly read the question paper in this allotted time. Analyse the question paper carefully, especially HOTS, Value-based, Case Study-based questions to plan and frame your answers in the best way.

2) Answering questions as per the assigned marks: In the exam, you will get 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 marker questions. While writing answers, always stick to the prescribed word limit. For 1 markers, write your answer in one word or one sentence. Remember 1 mark = one point or two points of half mark. Write to the point and do not elaborate much. For 3 markers, write 3 points with the proper explanation. For 4 markers, write 4 points with proper explanation. Similarly, 5 markers should have 5 points and 6 markers should have 6 points with the proper explanation.

Always remember that writing extra content in the paper will not get you extra marks but will only waste your time.

3) Giving examples: Cite examples whenever possible as marks are allotted for examples. You can give examples in the questions of principles of management, elements of business environment, types of plans, formal and informal organisation, training methods and elements of marketing mix.

4) Presentation: A good presentation combined with required content can definitely help you to score full marks in the paper. You should

  • Try to write answers in points rather than writing long paragraphs.
  • Underline important parts, keywords in the explanation and headings of answers or use highlighter or a colour pen for this. You need to do it simultaneously and not leave it for the end.
  • Write the question number clearly and strictly tallying with the question paper and leave few lines before attempting the next question.
  • Proper spacing should be given between the answers and points. You should leave one line after every point in an answer.
  • If possible, give the diagrammatic representation of an answer. For example, you can draw a diagram of Scalar Chain, Communication Networks, Controlling Process, Functional Structure and Divisional Structure.

5) Word limits: The marking scheme of CBSE requires brief and to the point answers, so you should adhere to the word limit and avoid writing long answers. You don't get more marks by writing long answers, but you waste your time. Divide your time between very short and long answers so that you don't run out of time while attempting the last questions.

6) Attempt all questions: You should write and explain whatever you know rather than leaving out the question completely. This is because you will get some marks for writing something, but if you don’t attempt the question, then there is no scope of getting marks.

Don’t forget to watch the following video which comprises tips on time management, attempting questions as per the marks and presentation for the Business Studies Board Paper.

 

All the very best for your exams from the TopperLearning family!
