1 ONLINE TEST and attendance for TA marks. Attend classes regularly, understand concepts, see problem solving methods in tutorials, attempt Previous Year Papers and most important practise from Jain and Iyengar or BS Grewal (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByWcF5oBacJEV3BfZzljdGh2YVU/view?usp=sharing). more than enough.
How to Crack the Paper[edit | edit source]
This subject is a bit more difficult than the first semester because of the topics. However if you are consistent with tutorials and classes then you can easily score good in the exams. The marks of attendance are counted in the teacher's evaluation.
