Class 11 is known to be one of the toughest classes in high school as new subjects chosen paired with new syllabus and new content, manage to frustrate even that one student who always scores 100/100. Class 11 is practically the foundation of what class 12 is going to be like, which is why it is designed to be complex, even more so than class 12
Maths. The easier subject as compared to others becomes even more difficult in class 11. Whether it be literature or grammar, it manages to rile us up in such a way that really just inflates the balloon of frustration, stress, anxiety, tension, and whatnot.
Now, in order to reduce the said tension and frustration, below is a list of various steps on how to score 100 out of 100 in the Maths examination in class 11.
- Making Notes
Studies on learning have been shown to prove that actively engaging on the topic by listening, viewing, and then summarizing and breaking things down into small chunks or pieces by writing notes on what you hear helps you understand and remember the intel provided. Making notes is essential in this subject as keeping up with the poetic devices of different stories and poems can cause a headache. Making notes nearby in your own words to make sure you understand what you are learning allows the mind to note down the keywords and make headers and topics on how to do and what to do in a better and efficient manner. Making notes is essential as the activity of writing down or recording notes in an understandable way for you helps motor, visual and auditory recall. This makes the subject much easier to remember and learn.
- No Spelling Mistakes
When you were kids, your small and minuscule spelling mistakes were ignored by teachers and parents but since class 11 students are now considered mature and grown-ups, the school and teachers tend to focus a lot on your spelling mistakes, even the minor ones. Ensuring that you don’t make any small spelling mistake in the examination hall while writing down your exam is very important as even the tiniest mistake of yours can reduce your marks in an unexpected way. Make sure that you learn all the spellings provided in your books and notebooks given by your teacher. Better yet, use some of your time to look through some synonyms and antonyms of the said words given in your books. You never know what your teacher might give you in an examination.
- No Need to Use Complex words
Most students in overconfidence tend to use complex and perplexing words and sentences that end up being wrong which, in the end, causes them to lose their points. There is no need to use such heavy and complex words to explain your sentences or theories. If you are not sure of your words or sentences and do not know if they are correct or not, use simple words to explain your sentence. There is no need to use dramatic wordings to make sure that your sentences are on point with the topic and what your teacher taught you. Writing excessively, perplexing vocabulary may impress your teacher but it can also make you lose your marks, so be careful on how and what you are writing. Make sure to use simple vocabulary and correct sentences throughout your paper.
- Don’t Underestimate Maths
This is something that a lot of students have done before. Underestimating Maths. Just because this subject is easier compared to other subjects, and is a very scoring one with that. Underestimating Maths has never proven to do well. It is good to be confident but overconfidence will lead you to your doom, especially in Maths. Your mind may act like it knows everything and can end up reading or writing things incorrectly which will lead to an automatic decrease in your marks. Also, do not be overconfident with your syllabus. Make sure you have revised each and every sentence of the stories and the poems ensuring that they have their own place in your mind, completely secured and well-rehearsed.
- Need For Speed
As mentioned above, Maths, as compared to other subjects, maybe easier but that does not mean that its examination is any less complicated. Maths may be known to be a very beneficial subject to score high marks in but the downside is that it comes in a very lengthy form, which will end up taking a lot of your time, that is if you do not have the proper writing speed. Before the examination itself, rehearse writing various times. Time yourself with a stopwatch. Make sure your handwriting is completely visible while also making sure that your speed is not any less as, without proper speed, there is a great chance that some questions in the examination paper may end up being undone due to decreasing time.
Practice is not only required in subjects like math or accountancy. Practicing is important in every subject including Maths where you need to practice your speed, your writing and grammatical skills, and the questions from poems and stories given in your NCERT book. Now, the NCERT book may not contain every information that you need to ace your examination, which is why practicing different books such as RS Aggarwal Solution of Class 11 is a great way to ensure your skills.
