Hi Kalpana,

Interesting question.

Humanities is more a theoretical stream, whereby most of the subjects are just theory accompanied by practicals.

As such you have no other option than memorising them.

But Smart study is the key.

If you notice, the lengthy answers, all points are not relevant. Few words or sentences only are important which is the crux of the answer. Memorising just the main points is the key to learning lengthy answers.

You could either highlight those words or sentences, make some marking, placards etc and make a note of them for future references.

But when the answer consists of experiments than you have no option, it has to be reproduced as it is.

Another way of approaching the theory is by generating your own example for them. It helps in easy recall.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck...

Dear Aspirant,

I agree that the Humanities stream studies has more of theoretical subjects and there are lengthy chapters and so answers too.

Your question is very valid since I have seen many students who ask me how do they remember theoretical subjects and score well. You also have to write multiple pages for one question in University exams.

However the main point I would also like to stress upon is 'understanding'. Nothing can replace understanding, the more you understand the situation, story, poetry, philosophy, history, concept the better you will be able to answer the question asked in the exam.

Without understanding, memorising will be of no use, since there are many cases where mugged up answers at the time of the actual examination do not get recollected and hence the students cannot write in the exam and score the marks. Do not mug-up just rather understand and try to remember logically what you have studies. Making mid maps is the best way to remember lenghthy and complex answers.

Best wishes
