  • Studying every chapter is not necessary. Candidate may skip a chapter or two because a maximum of 1-2 questions would be asked from each chapter. Even if you leave out these questions in the exam, you will have time to solve other questions and make the compensation.
  • Timing is everything. 120 minutes is way to less solve 120 questions in both the paper. Target 80 – 90 questions with a view to answer most of them correctly.
  • Do not try and attempt a question if you are unsure about the answer. The exam carries negative marking and if you get an answer wrong, you will lose your hard earned marks.
  • Planning your approach is important. You can start off with the section in which your comfort level is maximum. This will give you confidence as well as more marks.
