Class XI Physics Practical Exam Viva Voce

Hi Students!

The practical examinations are accompanied by viva voce by the external/internal examiner to ensure the genuineness of their work and to analyse the understanding of the subject by the students.

So it is important to prove yourself by performing well in the viva voce.

The following questions will be of some help to prepare well for it. Please remember that the questions following the first is based on your answer to the first question. (However, there are some examiners who come with some questions written on their diary or paper and blindly ask from them. For them, please prepare the questions which are printed on the practical manual.)

Best Wishes for CBSE Compartment Exam

Hello students,

CBSE is conducting the compartment exam 2012 on 16 July.

We wish all the candidtaes the very best.

Please keep this in mind while you prepare for the exam.

  • Don’t have any presumption that the compartment exam will be easier than the main exam
  • Attempt all questions
  • Ensure that you have attempted all parts of the same question (Even if you don’t know it)
  • Attempt the questions whose answers are well known to you and later go on to the less known one.
  • Please make sure that you have written the correct question number.
  • Draw diagrams using instruments. (Free hand diagrams will not fetch good marks)
  • While attempting numericals, write data giving proper symbols first and then write formula. Then you may be able to solve the problem which you thought you may not be able to solve at all!

Once again

Kerala HSE +1 Physics Exam is Over ! How was it?

Kerala HSE Plus One Physics Examination 2012 is over.

The political state of Kerala in India was cre...

How was the exam?

We will soon upload the question paper. By then you can discuss the questions and the answers.

Kerala is well known for the versatile structure of questions which checks the level of understanding of the student. Such questions will be a model for practice for all over the world.

Why Physics Exams are always reported difficult every year?

It is commonly found that there are maximum complaints after the Physics Exam. What could be the reason?

The fact is that there are students scoring 100% even in this “reportedly toughest ” question papers.

CBSE is also getting the questions prepared by Professors who are actively involved in text book preparations and with many years of experience. CBSE follow a standardized pattern for question papers too.

Even then after the Physics examination there is an uproar and requests are received from various parts regarding the faults and toughness of the question paper. The other subjects are not like this.

(See the posts http://plustwophysics.com/how-was-the-cbse-plustwo-physics-question-paper-aissce-2011/ and http://plustwophysics.com/how-was-the-cbse-physics-exam-2012/ and http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2012-03-06/board-exams/31126870_1_physics-paper-application-based-questions-bloom-public-school )

  • Is this because the Physics is not taught the way it should be?

Many educational institutions are coming up every year. There is  a scarcity of teachers, especially in Physics. Some are taking the job just as a means to earn income. Many do not know and follow the pattern of CBSE but some how they manage to complete the portions.

In many schools, other refresher books are followed instead of the NCERT Text book. This creates lot of problems. The CBSE question paper is set based on the data given in NCERT Text book. If there is a confusion, what is given in NCERT text book will get weightage.

  • Or is it because the students are more after the competitive exams and they start capsulizing things without understanding the concepts?

Such students solve the numerical problems excellently but fail to solve understanding and skill based questions. The style of presentation is also very important.

Exams are killing me.

Now, it has become important to understand the concept and follow the textbook thoroughly to get admission to IITs and other courses as they have started counting the marks scored in  Exams too.

Or, are there some other problems which make Physics exam difficult year after year. Come on let’s discuss…..
