  • Do not leave any section entirely blank in the paper. At least give an attempt & try to write something related or relevant according to the question.
  • Do not act over smart while you were in the exam hall. Read every passage twice, understand it properly, and then start attempting the question.
  • Firstly attempt all those questions which you were sure about. Attempt those questions which you have maximum clarity in your mind.
  • The important thing is patience, so be patient even after you were not able to solve some questions. Remain calm and focus on other questions. Do not waste your time just because of a single question. Move forward & attempt other questions.
  • Next, while you were preparing for prelims, then focus on mathematics, logical reasoning & comprehension.
