how to prepare myself for humanities 12 th board papers.

Rose Mary George 12th Jan, 2020

Hi Shyam ,

First of all you should collect all the materials which you need for your preparations.This should include texts which you are planning to refer,notes and most importantly previous year question papers with answers.

Secondly make timetable so that you can complete the portions within the time provided. Just roughly refer the previous year question papers so as to get an idea about the pattern of questions .

Now it's time to study. You should understand each and every topic and also maintain your own views about  the same.

It is subject in which the examiner evaluates you on length but you should have a very good time management. Also keep in mind that examiner is not going to read all your answers.Underline important points,make flow charts etc.

Hope this helps.

Is stream change allowed after 11th?

Abinash Panigrahi 3rd Jan, 2020

Dear aspirant,

Change of stream is a very complicated procedure which can be done only while you're in your 11th and during a certain time decided by the school authorities. But you can't just change your stream after 11th.

But you can do it if you want to repeat your 11th again and start over with the 1st year itself. Only through this way you can get to change your stream.


Hope you got your answer!
