How do I score 90+ in Maths?

First of all, you need to know that maths is the only subject in which you can score 100 out of 100 marks, and if you are thinking of getting high percentage then you must know that maths can prove to be really useful subject.

Your Strategy For Maths

Each subject needs a good strategy if you want to get good marks in it, but maths is a subject that needs a strategy the most. To help you out, here are some points that you should keep in mind.

Structure it out

Make a proper structure of each and every topic that you are going to cover. For example, if you have decided to prepare for Relations and Functions then you will need to divide each and every topic and assign a set time for it, and try to complete that topic in the time period set for it.

Suck NCERT up

Second and the most important point you should keep in mind is that you cover the whole NCERT book including the miscellaneous exercises.

And if you are one of those who are eyeing to join the category of elite 80’s and 90’s then you should also go through the theory part.

It may sound quite boring and some genius would rather go for other books like R.S.Agarwal and R.D.Sharma, but let me tell you, if you do not practice the whole NCERT properly, then there is no book in the world that will help you score in 80’s and 90’s.

As you must have heard that 70% of the questions that comes in board exams are from NCERT book, and, therefore, it is very important to practice each and every question properly from it. So basically, what I am trying to say is that you should suck NCERT up.

Rouge questions

Divide your time and efforts wisely as you do not want to waste your time on questions that have thin chances of coming in the exam and also do not carry and significant marks. I call them rogue questions, not that they are totally useless.

Know the weight of questions

To avoid these time wasting question, you will need to know the weightage table and then divide your time accordingly. Following is the weightage table for you.

 Chapters  Marks
Relations and Functions  5
Inverse Trigonometric Functions  5
Matrices  8
Determinants  5
Continuity and Differentiability  8
Applications of Derivatives  10
Integration  12
Applications of Integrals  6
Differential Equations  8
Vectors  6
Three dimensional Geometry  11
Linear Programming  6
Probability  10

So this is the weightage table for class 12th Maths CBSE. Make your studying scheme according to this weightage table.

Your notes that are apart

Make a separate list of all the important questions and formulas.

If possible, try to make a separate notebook in which you will make separate notes and points for each and every topics and chapter and their formulas.

This will help you in the final days of exams by giving you a quick view of the chapter.

Super tip for you

One more super tip for you, note all those questions which you think are important and may come in the exam.

You do not have to note the whole question but just the page number and the question number so that you could quickly find them at the time of revision.

Too big too bad

Calculus is a big topic to cover and the most important one too if you have practiced it before then well and good, but if you are running short of time, then I suggest you not to go for Calculus. Just cramp out the previous year questions.

It needs a hell of the time to master, and since you do not have time, therefore, it is for the best that you leave it.

But if you have time then you should definitely prepare calculus as well as you can. Calculus is one of the most important topics not for 12th but for further studies too.

Go for small fishes

If you are really going to leave calculus then of course your chances of scoring good marks are slim now, but you still achieve respectable marks, by hunting small fish i.e by preparing small and easy topics.

Chapters like linear programming and probability are easy, but leave no stone unturned as they will bring just one or two questions but for big numbers, therefore you need to make sure that you squeeze the maximum out of these questions.

Practice sample papers too 

Finally do practice the sample papers and previous years question papers, though this is something for which you need time. Since you are here to download CBSE 12th maths sample papers, therefore, I assume that you do have time.

Practicing the sample papers and previous years papers makes you strong for the exam in so many ways.

The Judgement day Situation

Now on the judgment day or on the exam day, you should take the following points in consideration.

The first half of the exam

First of all, keep your mind clear and stress-free.

Read all the questions very carefully present in the question paper.

Attempt those questions first that you think you can solve quickly and efficiently.

Stay focused while solving questions as a bit of mistake can result in a wrong answer and total wastage of time.

Demand for a rough paper from examiner to do all the calculation or keep a separate page for rough work.

The second half of Exam

Students often make the mistake of writing the solution of the question quite freehandedly and, therefore, get confused due to the dirty work, therefore, it is very important to keep the answers neat and clean. It will not only help you but will also create an impression on the examiner.

Finally do not forget to go through your answer sheet, at least, one time very carefully to confirm that all the answers you wrote are correct.

Later if you get time then try to attempt those question which you left, but make sure that you solve all those questions that you can solve first.

So this is all for now, hope you will try to implement the given tips. Please feel free to comment if you have any suggestions or problem.

All the very best for your exams.

    1. Hi sankalp. For the calculus part, i always suggest students to first get clear with the formulas. Learn them by heart, once you will done with them, start practicing more and more. The more you practice, the more you will get to know the basic concepts.

      Practice all the questions from NCERT book, don’t leave even a single one and then jump on to the previous year papers and sample papers for revising the important questions.

  14. hello sir! is it really important to practice RD Sharma to get 90+ in math or are ncert book and ncert exemplar along with previous years question papers sufficient?

    1. Hi Komal. If you properly practice the questions from NCERT book along with practicing previous year papers and sample papers, then there is no need to practice any other book. Anyway, there are only three months left for the exam, so you need to focus on revising the concepts instead of understanding the new ones.

  15. hellow sir i m guru , Relations & Functions and application of derivatives these two chapter are so irritating me

    1. Hi Hirish. If you are facing problem in some chapters like Relations and Functions and application of Derivative, then leaving these chapters is not the solution. Instead, you have to work more hard on these particular chapters. Make sure that you are done with all the NCERT questions of these two chapters along with the questions in previous year papers. They gonna help you a lot.
      Apart from it, you can take help of the reference books to understand the basic concepts.

  16. sir…pls give me idea to remember wht I study…..I go short of my memory power

    1. Hi Charan. It happen with so many students of your class. Actually, it is all due to lack of concentration. First of all, try to understand things instead of rattafication.
