How to Score Well in Long-Answer Type Questions?

Note the following tips for scoring well in the test series and real exam

  1. Train yourself to form the structure and gather key thoughts on the answer as soon as you read the question

  2. Distinguish the questions key-words: critically examine, discuss, illustrate, argue, justify etc. Your answer, writing style, and formation should follow this keyword.

  3. The beginning and end of the answer should be very compelling. The beginning should force the examiner to read more and ending force him to give marks!

  4. Questions should exactly on the question, make a case and then stick to one point of view. Don’t get confused midway through the answer.

  5. Write legibly and neatly, preferably, use colored pens.

  6. Make sure that sentences and paragraphs are complete and logically connected. The ideas should be prioritized and each paragraph should focus on one topic.

  7. A picture can speak a thousand words. Draw diagrams and maps, preferably towards the beginning of an answer.
