- Occupy your seat at least 5–10 min before your exam time.
- Fill in all your details properly before you begin your test.
- Read all the instructions carefully.
- Assess the question paper as per its standard and flag those questions which are from your strong area.
- There is no particular order to attempt the question, you can pick any order of subjects, but spend a reasonable amount of time on every subject. Ensure you don’t spend more than 1 hour on any particular subject.
- If you find any subject difficult, please understand that you are not alone, you quickly shift over and solve as many questions as possible in the other subjects.
- Single answer objective type of question carries negative marks hence no guesswork. However numerical-value based questions may not attract any negative marks (Read instructions & clarify on this during the exam)
- Ensure that you stay allotted time in the exam hall. Don’t rush to complete the exam.
- Review your answers 10-15 minutes before your finishing time and also verify your details before submitting the exam.
