CBSE class 12 Board exam

The CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) Board examination for Class 12 will be going to begin from 5 March. All the students who are going to appear for the first time in the board exam, we are here to advise you some important tips that will help you in not making any mistakes during the exam.

Today, we are going to give you some tips for Business Studies (BST) paper which is scheduled to be conducted on 9 March.

As BST is a theory based exam and many students faced difficulties while doing the exam preparations. After the changes made by CBSE this year, it is almost impossible for the candidates to score 100 percent in the examination. Because from this year, students have to study the full NCERT book. As CBSE now tends to case studies and indirect questions which test the conceptual knowledge of students.

However, the Business Studies syllabus deals mainly with General Management, Financial Management and Marketing Management.

As the date of board examination about to come, students going to be impatient for their preparation and in hurry students normally do some mistakes that create trouble for them.

As per the teachers, who checked the exam copies identified some common mistakes made by the students every year in the exam. So, if you don't want to repeat the same mistakes. Then, you should know before appearing for the Business Studies exam.

Have a look at these mistakes:

1. As the paper based on theory, so students should not forget to read the passage thoroughly and carefully to answer correctly. Because questions contain the answer in itself.

2. If it is possible then try to draw the diagram even if it is not asked. Don't draw with pen and also not forget to label it. Because it helps in leaving the positive impact on the teacher's mind.

3. Try to complete your answer in given word limit. Don't write a paragraph for short answers. Also, highlight the important points in your answers. Because it shows that you know the question's answer properly.

4. Don't try to give your own frame definition on the topic. Ust answer the same definition stated in the NCERT book.

5. In BST paper, try to mention the real-life examples (mathematical examples in case of Financial Management) because it helps in securing the maximum marks but remember answer only whenever it is asked.

6. Normally, students answer the 1 mark question in one word only either Yes or No, which is wrong. Try to justify your answer in a line that why you agree or disagree with the question.

7. Don't forget the time limit of the exam. Time management should be of priority for each and every question. Try to divide your time on the basis of sections having marks weightage. As students make this mistake by giving an extra time on long answers to score the high marks which is completely wrong.
