can you upload marking scheme or blue print of marls which will help us to train below avarage students.

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 26th Mar, 2020


for SSC, main work is practice. it is not about how much you remember. It is all about how much you understand and utilizes it or learns it. If i say Sun shines bright. other person with whom i am communicating should under stand that temperature today is hotter compared to morning or yesterday or season wise. interpretation can be done through countless ways. so one can think of utilizing that temperature like making prickle or washing  floors,objects,.... etc.

this is learning. this is the only way to improve average students. They have to understand and utilize.

Hope it helps!
