      Hi Muchukund,

      Apologies for the late reply. Good to see you here, again!

      As with everything that requires solving, we would suggest that you keep practicing. Begin with trying to solve solved examples. Check the steps and whether you could arrive at the same steps. Identify where you are making mistakes. Try not to make them the next time. After solving and practicing solved examples till you become confident in them, solve the practice exercises or homework exercises that you may have already done before in school. Again, do them till you are confident in solving them. After having solved both of these, attempt previous years’ math papers and mole concept questions from chemistry papers, or model test papers, whichever are available. Get them checked by your teacher. Again, identify where you are making mistakes. Jot them down, if need be so that you can go through that list of potential mistakes before your board exam.

      By practicing and analyzing in this manner, I am sure you will improve and gain confidence. There’s still time, so get started without wasting time in worry. All the best! Let us know if you have any questions or need further help. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Utkarsh,

      We are not aware of the same. Hence, we can only advise you to keep revising those topics which you find difficult or in which you are weak. The ones which you like or which you are confident in will be easier to revise even at a later date. First, focus on the former.

      Hope this helps! If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Thank you for stopping by, and do keep visiting. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Alfia,

      Practice is key. Try to understand the balancing part and the reasons behind it. Apply your logic to understand why we use a certain catalyst, etc. or why the equation takes place under the specified conditions. Ultimately, after understanding these aspects, write down the equations and practice them at intervals, e.g. three days in a row, then on the fifth day, then eighth day, etc. so that they are stored in your long-term memory.

      Hope this helps! If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Thanks for stopping by, and do keep visiting. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi there!

      If you are confident that you will be able to quote word for word, then go ahead and use a quote! They have the most impact at the beginning and end of the essay, but you can always surprise the examiner and use it wherever you feel it’s appropriate. Make sure you give due credit to the person whom you are quoting. Also, one or two quotes is fine. Don’t overdo it, though.

      Hope this helps! If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

      Good luck! Stay connected. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Tarun,

      Hi there! First off, please don’t call me “sir.” ๐Ÿ™‚

      As for your query, we’d suggest you refer to either of the books for English I that we have mentioned here:
      https://icsehelpline101.wordpress.com/2013/03/22/textbook-textbook-which-to-choose/

      Alternatively, you may search for lists of prepositions and prepositional phrases on the internet, print one out, and go through it every day before going to sleep or before sitting to study for the day.

      Practice will help! So, keep revising. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sure it will make a difference.

      Hope this helps! If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

      Thanks for stopping by! Keep visiting. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Tanisha,

      We apologize for the late reply. I would suggest practicing exercises on prepositions from grammar textbooks as prescribed by your school or otherwise. The internet is also a great place to download a list of prepositions, which are typically used with certain words.

      For example, “abstain from“, “cured of“, etc.

      Practice the entire list every day for fifteen minutes and gradually, you’ll find it easier to attempt questions based on prepositions.

      Hope this helped! If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! Thanks for visiting! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Navanya,

      No problem. ๐Ÿ™‚
      For English II and Hindi, I would suggest reading the textbooks as much and as often as you can. For English, go through the prescribed workbooks. They are quite detailed and will help you write a precise and thorough answer. Try to improve your answers by making use of the workbook vocabulary. Read one chapter/poem/scene everyday from each of the texts. Underline words you feel should be included in your answer as well as those of which you don’t know the meaning. Look up their definitions and implement them while writing your paper. For grammar, keep on practising and take up one topic every day and work on it for a few days at the most till you are thorough with it.
      Hope this helps! If there is anything specific you want help for, please let us know! Thank you and keep visiting. ๐Ÿ™‚
