  • Practise diagrams, focus on chemical reactions, learn physics formulae
  • If you find a topic difficult, reform it into a flowchart or visualize it in a diagram
  • When reading chapters for the first time, go through them carefully. Do not learn. After completing the chapter, try to recall important information. Read and learn it the second time. This time it is learnt in-depth for its information. In the end, try recalling and solving questions in the chapter.
