Avoid Blind Guesses
Random guessing should be avoided at all costs. Either you know a question or you don’t. So kindly attempt accordingly. Blind guessing will cost you precious marks.
Strategize between Easy & Difficult
Always attempt the most easy questions first and the complex ones last. By doing this, you will secure marks for these questions and will avoid risk of any negative marking.
Take Calculated Risks
By calculated risks we mean, the times in which you can eliminate one, two or even three options. This increases the probability of getting the correct answer from 33% to 50%.
Read Questions Properly
Many a times, aspirants fail to understand questions because they don’t read them fully. Avoid this and attempt well.
Kindly manage your time properly from the first minute of the exam so as to avoid last minute rush. The more time you have per section, the more correctly you will be able to attempt.
We hope you will keep all these things in mind. All the very best 🙂
