    Dear friend,

    To be a top scorer follow the instructions below:-

    Exam Pattern : Get familiar with the exam pattern. You should know the number of questions, time limit, expected cut-off marks, number of attempts required and other relevant details.

    Time Management :Identify your strong and weak areas and allocate different time slots for yourself to devote to each of the sections. This would avoid the temptation of solving more than required questions in any particular section.

    Avoid Flukes : There is magic dice that will tell you the right answers otherwise please be prepared for a disaster.

    Focus on your strengths : During the tense examination, students fail to locate easier questions or the type of questions they have already done. Just scan the paper quickly and mark the questions which you must attempt first.

    At least read all the questions : We tend to lose concentration at different stages during the exam and tend to skip questions because of time pressure. Again, follow the golden rule mentioned above. If you want to identify which questions to attend, it is imperative that you read all the questions.

    Donít hurry : Panic and stress can lead you to this mistake. Instead of marking option A of Q.22 some people mark the option A of Q.23. While you think you marked a correct option, the result may be a different than what you have anticipated. So, donít rush! Just check before you mark the options.
