Last Minute Tips for Scoring High in SOL BA English Hons. Examination 2017:

1. Context and Content are both King

Questions such as ‘Write Character Sketch of Iago from Othello’ can be open ended one. Therefore, it is difficult to write answers that are pinpointed critical analysis without digression. But, you have to stick to the context and focus on writing quality content.

2. Quality wins over Quantity

English literature students believe that writing 2000 worded answer will help them score high in BA English Hons. Let me tell you that is never the case with any professor checking your answer sheets. Hence, if you can write sublime and quality answer within 400 words you could easily expect high score.

3. Relate and Correlate

If you have gone through background readings, socio-economic contexts, writers’ background and other related themes, genre, movements etc. Then you can use all these in your answer writing. A DU professor checking your answer sheet would love to see a well researched answer.

4. Practice Critical Thinking, Reading and Writing

Well, this is not a last minute tip per se. However, every BA English Hons. student should have these skills. It helps you to write original answers and score high in exams (any exam you name it). Therefore, practice these skills, you will find it easy to score high every time.

5. Cleanliness is next to Godliness

By this, I mean your handwriting. Make sure you write cleanly without making lots of cuts and lines. Stay within alignment and margins, and focus on writing cleanly instead of beautifying it. No professor will appreciate your cursive writing skills and give you extra marks for it.

6. Check your facts

Most students make mistakes in dates and names. Ensure you that your facts are accurate. It is difficult to memorize it, but it can be done in structured way during your preparations. Or you could take help of SOL BA English Honours coaching.  

7. Time Management

Often student waste their precious time to main questions. That eventually leaves them with little time for other low marks questions. Manage your time effectively and use it optimally. If you believe some questions may take less time then complete those first. And then use your major portion of time for high marks questions. It can be other way round as well.

    • We cannot tell you 100 percent that questions will be from previous years question papers. Nevertheless, we have seen pattern of questions repeating each year. Therefore, we recommend that always go through previous year question papers of SOL BA English Hons. However, to score high you will always need excellent writing skills and critical thinking, hence also work upon it. Best of luck!
