For a Science stream student, CBSE Class 12 Chemistry is an important subject. This subject is easy for those students who have a good command of the basic concepts of Chemistry. It becomes difficult to score more than 90% marks for those who are unable to comprehend this subject. 

CBSE Class 12 Board Examinations are significant because the result of these exams decides the future of a student. But for some students, it becomes difficult to score well in the Chemistry Board Examination.

Some students think that studying 1 to 2 months before the examination will help them to score well in the Chemistry examination.

  • Take A Look Of Previous Years Question Papers And Sample Papers.

Practising sample papers will assist students to know about the pattern of the exam paper. Also, by solving previous years questions papers, students will get an idea about what type of questions will come and which are the most important topics in Chemistry Class 12. Students will have a strong grip over the concepts if they solve these papers.

  • Go Through The Blueprint Of Chemistry Class 12.

The Chemistry question paper of Class 12 is divided into 4 sections. These are as follows:

  1. Section A –16 questions (passage-based and MCQs)

Also, taking school classes will help students in clarifying their doubts through their teachers. So, it is necessary to pay attention to all the theories and practical lectures.

  • Improve Your Writing Skills.

Students can also learn concepts by writing them. Practice by writing and solving equations and numerical help in boosting the writing speed of the students. By having a habit of writing, students get the idea about how to present answers in the answer sheet. Students should write the answers for long questions in points with relevant diagrams.

  • Assess Yourself.

After studying a lot and completing the course, students should evaluate themselves so that they can know their weaknesses. By solving papers, they can analyze themselves.
