Learn the Basics!

When you start your preparation, do not try to solve questions by shortcut methods. You should memorize all the basic theories and formulas of all the chapters. If your basics are not clear, you may not be able to solve questions.

Speeding Up Calculations with Tips & Minor Hacks

Since you will be facing a number of calculation based questions, you need to have the following things at your tips

  1. Tables from 1 to 20
  2. Square from 1 to 30
  3. Cube from 1 to 30
  4. Most common Fraction to Decimal Conversions and vice-versa

Though most of you already know all this, it is advisable to go through this at least once or twice until the exam day and try to use these short tricks while solving the paper.

Regularly Solve Math Quizes

If you solve math puzzles regularly, it will help you in mastering calculations and increase your speed. It is also beneficial for you as solving puzzles is a great exercise to freshen up your mind.

Also, you can try solving the puzzles when you take a break in between your study period. This will save your precious time that you can utilize for other topics and subjects.

Practice Mock Tests

Practice with various mock tests and question banks which are available on various online portals. This helps you in giving an idea of the different ways the questions are set. The questions are deliberately set in a confusing format but if you are familiar with the pattern and different question types, you will be able to solve the questions easily. We advise you to practice a minimum of 50 questions on a daily basis.

Time Management in Calculative Questions

This is a very specific query. How to solve questions involving calculations? As we have stated above, learning shortcut methods like memorizing squares, cubes and common fraction to decimals can be great on such questions. But, if there is a chance that error can occur, you may skip such questions and devote that time towards solving questions from other topics. Also, remember that the question to time ratio is less than 1.

Maintain Composure

Stay calm and composed at all times and don’t panic. It will only make matters worse for you. Always study with a positive attitude which will help you to retain and recall all that you have learned over the period of time.

Even if you are not good at a particular topic, instead of worrying and getting stressed, try to work on it. Also, don’t neglect your health and try to take out some time to meditate or exercise as a healthy mind only resides in a healthy body.
