Understanding the important topics of Physics and their marks distribution makes it easy to distribute their time based on the topics. Following is the list of topics with marks distribution:
- Optics: This carries 14 marks in the examination.
- Electrostatics, magnetic effect of current: This carries 8 marks each.
- Electromagnetic induction and alternating current: The marks distribution is 8 and 7 respectively.
- Electronic devices: This carries 7 marks in the examination.
Following are the stepwise guide to score good marks in Physics:
- Being thorough with NCERT books for Physics is very important as all the topics from the syllabus are covered in the textbook.
- Make a complete list of derivations like the derivation of dipole moment, equation of motion, etc formulas, and experiments from the syllabus and keep the list handy which can be referred during exams.
- Regular revising of all the concepts.
- Learning S.I units for all the physical entities is important.
- NCERT textbooks have many numerical problems both solved and unsolved. Practice all of them.
- Practice how to present descriptive answers in points along with graphs and circuit diagrams if the question demands them.
- For short answer questions, be crisp and to the point with the answer.
- Solving previous year question papers from the official website of CBSE are also helpful.
- Avoid using calculators. During exams, you are not allowed to use calculators so it becomes important to know how to solve numerical problems manually. The speed and technique will come with regular practice.
- If you find difficulty with the concepts, seek help from teachers or from fellow classmates. Don’t be shy to clear your doubts.
- Give equal importance to Physics practical examinations. They carry 20 marks out of 100 marks. Understanding the principle behind all the practicals will also help in theory exams.
