* Read the HSC government textbook since all theory questions, MCQs and numerical problems are based on the textbook.
* Follow the language of the textbook only to write 'definitions'.
* Practice diagrams with proper labeling from chapters like, 'solid state', 'electrochemistry', 'principles of isolation of elements'. Revise structures of compounds in p-block elements, d-block elements.
* Make a list of formulae, chapter–wise, giving importance to symbols and SI units so that it becomes easy to revise.
* For organic chemistry section, study the proper way of writing IUPAC names of the compounds, drawing correct structures in chapters like Bio-molecules and Chemistry in everyday life.
* Practice March 2013 and October 2013 board papers and get them checked from a teacher. This will help you get a real feel of how HSC papers.
* While attempting multiple choice questions write the option and answer.
* For short answer questions, write point-wise. Draw diagrams wherever required.
* For long answer questions, write point-wise. Numerical problems- write data, formulae, and substitute properly. Write the final answer with the correct unit.
