1. Manage your time in such a way that you are able to go through all the questions at least once in the exam. The reason behind it is there are many questions which are deliberately designed to be complex and end up grabbing the lion’s share of time. A good time management strategy helps you identify questions which are easier and hence, can be solved in less time.

2. Go for the English section first. It takes minimum time and you should be able to complete it in 10-15 minutes max.You need to divide the next 45-50 minutes depending upon your subject preference.

3. Attempt 1 mock test daily with honesty to increase your efficiency. Appearing for mock tests help you gauge your preparation levels and help you improve upon them.

4. Remember not to give too much time on a single question and never try and waste your time attempting the questions you are not confident of solving.
