  • Don’t get excited if you find that you know answers for most of the questions as there are high chances of you making mistake in excitement. Go one by one and keep your mind focused
  • Carefully devote time for each section and don’t
  • Try to get through the numerical first. In case you don’t feel comfortable with the numerical then you are free to go from the question from where you feel good.
