Excerpts from the book ‘Exam Warriors’ by PM Narendra Modiji.


Have you been in a situation where, after the exam, you think: I could have written much more, but ran out of time? Proper time management during the exam can change this.


Just remember not to get stuck on any one question. More to the next one. You can always come back to the unanswered question later.


Similarly, you may know an answer particularly well and may want to keep writing, but there are other questions to be answered. Write what you feel is essential in the spirit of the question, and move ahead.


Not every question will be equally simple or difficult. Some of you may prefer to answer the simpler questions first and tackle the complex one later, while others do the opposite. 


I am told some schools and boards allot an additional fifteen minutes for reading the questions. This is the ideal time for students to collect their thoughts and plan how to approach the question paper.


There is no ideal style of answering questions. Find your own unique style while keeping in mind the requirements of each question and the subject.


Always remember to double-check every question, especially where data numbers are involved.
