You must be careful of negative marking. Do not take chances while attempting questions because if you do not maintain accuracy, then your high number of attempts might go in vain. Do read the instructions. First read the questions carefully than work on the answer, as sometimes we skip the rules of questions like - in questions examiner is asking for 'not follow' but we go with 'follows' option as we have done practice with 'follow' option.

5. Don’t take anything on your ego
Well, it is quite probable you may feel you know the concepts to solve a question just too well yet you are unable to crack through it in the exam time, so just skip it, and take another question. Skip a question if you feel it is too time consuming or you might not be able to get it right, at the end you have to score enough to clear sectional and overall cut off. Let nothing kill your speed! so keep a track of your time and don’t get stuck anywhere.
