  • Solve previous year question papers and sample papers to analyze every test to check their capabilities.
  • Candidates should remember to leave the last one week for revision of the complete syllabus.
  • Along with working towards their strategy for the exam, applicants should also, watch out for simple mistakes you can make that could cost them heavily. From carrying the correct documents, reaching the examination center on time, to avoiding calculation errors, all these are small things every applicant should keep in mind.
  • Keeping the time limitations in mind, it is expected that the applicant should not spend too much time on a single question but also not rush through the questions as it could cause panic.
