  • Write down all the important formulae as a ready reckoner for the day of the exam
  • This strategy would give ample time for the difficult questions later. As a rule, it would be better to move on to the next question, if you have taken more than two-three minutes in a particular question. You may revisit the same at the end of the paper
  • Candidates should understand that success in the examination not only requires hard work during the preparation stage but also smart work during the examination time
  • What needs to be understood is that the objective of the examination is to score more marks than to spent more time in answering difficult questions
  • The smartness is to pick the easy questions and to score more marks. These questions would be spread over the entire question paper and so one needs to identify those initially and maximize the score
  • Do not panic during the examination, if any of the section seems to be relatively difficult. Remember that if it is difficult for you, it could be difficult for everybody. During the examination, attempt all questions and take a good guess even for the questions which you are not sure of.
