It is not simple to score 100% in Maths, but here are some keys for that:

- Learn every concept gradually. Don’t try to cover-up everything in one single day. You will stay confused and the result will be more devastating than before.
- Keep you formula notebook and solution book handy.
- Practice, practice and practice, until you are satisfied that the hidden concept is clear in your brain.
- Maths is one such subject which can be practiced anytime is it night or day.
- When you go to bed, just close you r eyes and try to memorize and refresh the formulas which you have learnt today.
- If you are weak in maths, give at least 2 hours for practicing questions every day. Even then if you are unable to grasp any concept, don’t hesitate to ask your teacher.

**Tips during the Maths examination**

- Keep your paper clean. Draw a proper margin and a rough space as well. Don’t scribble or do cutting or over writing. First think and then write. This will help you preventing unnecessary error correction.
- Maths is a scoring subject. Even if your answer is wrong, maths does have separate number for formulas as well i.e. step marking is followed.
- Make sure you copy the right figures from the question paper.
- Draw figures and graphs wherever necessary. All the geometry questions accompany a figure. You need to draw that as there are separate numbers for that too.
- First attempt the questions which you know and leave the dicey ones for the end. Don’t waste too much time over one problem, as the chances of your paper going un-attempted increases.
