Days  Subjects  Important Tips 

14  Physics – Keep the complete list of formulae, experiments, and derivations  1. Try having a weekly revision and a written test of what you studied during the weekdays. 2. Make sticky notes of difficult things to remember, and place them around your house. 3. Put in extra time for difficult subjects. 4. You can identify two subjects that you find the most difficult, and spend an extra hour daily on those subjects. 7. Practise sample papers/previous year papers to understand the pattern, test your preparation and identify your weak areas 8. Keep yourself calm, positive and confident. 
59  Chemistry – Questions related to organic and inorganic chemistry are factbased questions that can be solved quickly with good practice.  
1015  Maths – Firstly, clear the basic fundamentals and concepts of the subject. Some calculations can be lengthy. You should practise these types of questions a lot.  
1618  English – Read as much as you can. Any piece of good literature should not escape your hands: Your textbooks, the newspaper, or anything else you can lay your hands on. Follow a good grammar book and know the basic rules.  
1922  Computer Science – The key to a successful Computer Science exam is understanding. As the majority of the question paper is based on programming, the only way to score is by having a thorough understanding of the programming
