How do I write answers in exams?

I love eating Indian junk food.
Be it Samosa, Kachori, sweets, Pani Puri etc.
But if I have to go catch a fish, I will need to use fish food, insects, worms or a smaller fish as a bait.
I can not put a Kaju Katli in the hook and expect the fish to eat it.
So if I need to catch a fish, it is not about what I like / want, it is always about the needs of the fish.
This is the most important principle when it comes to writing an awesome answer.
Write an answer which the examiner wants, expects, will enjoy reading, which makes his eyes lit up, put a smile on his face and in turn will make him give you the highest marks possible.
Few tips (especially for competitive exams):
I feel I can write 200 more points (learnings of past 20 years), but they will make this answer a lot longer.
May be a book perhaps :) Just kidding.
Need to sleep for a few hours.

Have you ever run out of points while writing answers in exams ?
It often happens that you forget the remaining points of answer and waste your time thinking for the same.
I have a solution for this guys!
Make a last page of you paper as a rough page ( us usual, everyone does!) and write following points on that.
Abbreviating prefixes of above points we get- “Cow faced fest tub pads”.

Easy to remember right?
Now, whenever you are stuck at any answer, just flip the pages and take a quick look at above points and you'll immediately get undiscovered points which were wandering in your memory.
I am sure you’ll get at least 2–3 more points.
, boosting 10–20% of your score.
(Considering you know the subject, at least vaguely if not thoroughly )
Above mentioned list is very generic and will change from field to field.
You can make your own list according to your subjects :)
PS: This technique is tried and tested for 4 years of engineering.
I assure you at least 10% increase in you score! 😀

Have a structure to the answer: Let the thoughts in an answer follow a logical structure, an order, a cause effect relationship.
Once the examiner gets a feel for the structure and starts following along, he will feel comfortable with the answer and will give marks.
Make the structure apparent: Write the answer such that the structure in your answer becomes easy to understand and follow.
It’s possible to do it by using paragraphs, indentations, using highlights, capitalizing etc.
Make the key concepts easily visible: This overlaps with the earlier point.
Use highlighting, indentations, underlines so the key concepts are easily visible.
This is very useful.
In a 100 word answer, there are probably just 20 words that are key ideas.
The remaining words are supporting words, add no value.
The 80:20 principles applies here too.

Free Response/Short Answer
I like to personally put down all of the information related to the question or all of the possibilities of the question because one of the answers has to be right.
This only works if there is no rule against that on the exam.

Just remember the basics of that very Question you are Answering,to the point.

Never ever think low or feel tensed.
Think that within the exam duration no one will know what you are writing good or bad,that means no criticism so just give your full while doing that.
One more thing which i believe that if I am not writing an answer due to any unavoidable circumstances I will just get a big 0 as reward but but if I manage to list down even it's basics I will be able to grab some preliminary marks,which is of course better than nothing.
So just go tension free,write to the point,write freely…
ALL THE BEST!!!

If you can specify which exam you are talking about.
ButIi will give answer what one can do generally,
There are four steps,
That’s all!

By speaking good and correct English and reading the question and understand before attempting.
