Students are advised to study and learn all formulas. Direct formulas are quite often asked as well as conceptual questions were easy to attempt.
CHEMISTRY– If students have revised conceptual questions then the Chemistry exam of 2018 was very easy because 80% of the questions were conceptual. Inorganic and Physical Chemistry were only 5 to 6 and rest of the Organic questions were quite easy to answer.
MATHS– It is always good to prepare well by practicing from solved papers and mock tests. 2018 maths examination had lots of tricky as well as lengthy questions.
ENGLISH– Students were able to easily answer and complete all questions of English subject before time.
