Tips to score high in maths optional –
Your high school maths teacher was right when she reiterated the importance of practice to score well in your maths paper. Although answer writing is essential for any UPSC civil services paper, it gets double the import in the maths paper. Practising makes you faster in your problem-solving.
- Avoid silly mistakes
Avoid silly mistakes like ignoring a ‘+’ or ‘-’ sign, copying numbers wrong, or making simple addition/subtraction mistakes. These can be very costly. Practice till you are perfect.
- Go through a problem carefully. Write down what is given in the question. Then work out the answer step-by-step.
- Present your solutions clearly in steps, line-by-line.
Always write the solutions neatly. Don’t make the examiner’s work harder by providing haphazardly written answers.
- Always understand the topic. Never try and learn the process by heart. It doesn’t work in mathematics.
- Always understand the question correctly before venturing to work out the solution. Once you start writing the answer and it is incorrect, you lose precious space in the question-answer booklet. And later, even if you figure out you have to rework your answer; you might not be able to because of a space crunch.
- Always prepare and keep a formula sheet handy with you. This will help you memorise certain formulae that would be required to solve the problems.
- Always solve mathematical problems with a relaxed mind. Panic can cause confusion and you will end up faring badly in your UPSC optional paper.
