  • While solving MCQs need to focus on time also because the time for each question in the actual exam is less than 1 min.
  • The candidate can prepare his own plan based on which area one is strong in because one has to first attempt a section in which he/she is more confident.
  • While solving numerical need to take care of calculation errors.
  • Solving previous year’s questions always gives good confidence to move further.
  • After compilation of MCQs on a particular topic, one needs to attempt the previous year’s questions of that topic, if any question is unsolvable then we need to revise that concept and followed by practicing a few MCQs will work in a better way.
