Being a student is definitely tough. You have to memorize tons of things, be disciplined in every approach, and try to be creative, all at the same time. Having tough subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Psychology don’t make the process any simpler. But can these challenges be surpassed?

Chemistry and Biology from the pillars of science and have wide applications. Though quite easy to understand, theoretically, their usage in real life is quite complicated. Anyone can memorize the theoretical approach, cram stuff up and pass an exam. But what if we want to excel in the subject? A thoughtful approach is definitely required here. 

Here we have provided some tips and tricks on how to approach Biology and Chemistry problems in the exam and how to be quick about it. Go through them and say goodbye to any difficulties you have ever faced!

In Chemistry, Practice is the key.

In Chemistry, there are extensive calculations, formulas, and concepts that need to be understood and interpreted correctly. Becoming familiar with them will lay the groundwork and help you solve problems much faster in the exam. Also, as you go through the theory part, it is essential to pay attention to the practical part – The issues, sums, and exercises. Becoming acquainted with the common traps, the types of questions asked, and the language used can help you to judge the difficulty level of the question easily, thus saving critical time!

In Biology, Elimination game is important.

Biology is a subject where you have to memorize a lot of things. Mostly, these things are complicated and are difficult to grasp. In an exam where there are multiple-choice questions, one can always use the elimination strategy. You can start with the answer that is the least relevant and start crossing it out from there. After crossing out every possibility but one, mark that as the right answer! In a theoretical paper, this technique is useful before the exam. Eliminate the topics that are the least relevant to the questions that will be asked and study them later on. Though risky, this technique does work if planned out properly!

In Chemistry and Biology, Brushing up concepts time and again.

When you revise the content, you revisit the topic and are not overwhelmed by the questions asked. Revising at regular intervals will help you retain the concept for a longer time in mind and also boost the brain processing speed. The little details that had been left out for the first time can be covered in this revision session, and some concepts that had been misunderstood can be reconstructed correctly. After holding these revision sessions for quite a few times, you will achieve mastery over the subject and cannot be surprised over any question in the exam! In this way, you can approach any question confidently enough. 

These are the 3 main strategies that you can follow, not only for Biology and Chemistry but for any subject. So, what are you waiting for? Draft your schedule today and get down to work!
