Highlight all words and sentences matching with the words in the questions. These highlighted sentences will greatly help you once you start looking for answers. You can score full marks from this section with fewer efforts and time. Students usually do mistake by not practicing enough practice paper. I suggest you score last year question papers and practice/sample papers.

From the Writing section, you will see such questions of 10 Marks. 10 Marks of questions are divided into three parts where 3 Marks is allocated for Formats, 4 Marks for Contents (Quality of Writing) and 3 Marks is dedicated for the accuracy of Language.

After jotting down structure your answer by building it from those points. Board Examiner always prefers a handful number of ideas rather repetitive arguments in different ways written by students. So start preparing from last year question papers and start building up your ideas.

Practice questions chapter wise it will help you build up your concepts and brush up grammar rules. Learn from your mistakes. Solve Previous year question papers.

Literature: Literature section carries maximum marks in your English Subject Paper. For better preparing, this Part read all the chapters of your textbooks thoroughly. Take notes from your chapters. Prepare previous year questions especially for poem section as it is difficult to understand. Simply understanding the chapter will not make you capable to write answers for 10 Marks questions so practice questions from previous year papers.
