Prepare a study plan entirely if you haven’t started your preparations.

You should decide the timetable in a way that you can also make time to stay relaxed and free.

Add at least half an hour break between 3 hours of study.



2. No New Topic


The experts advise that you should not start studying any new topic before 5-6 days of the exam. Instead of picking up a new topic, you should go through the topics you have studied.

It’s considered as a good practice if you make the studied topics stronger. Because the strategy to score more in the exam says that you need not attempt all the questions you see in the paper but should make the correct attempt to those questions on which you have mastery.



3. Focus on Shorts Tricks


The questions from subjects “General Intelligence and Reasoning” and “Quantitative Aptitude” take a lot of time to solve. So, to solve more questions in less time, you can take help from the short tricks used in these questions.

While solving the papers, please pay attention to the techniques or strategies you apply. If there is more than one method to solve, you must choose the one that saves your time.
