- Start with the easiest preferably practical question.
- Then take up next level question leaving most difficult for the end.
- Before taking up the difficult one, you can quickly complete the theory question.
At the end:
- Take the remaining difficult question and try to do as much as possible.
- Check the whole answer sheet for anything you need to do if time remains.
- In every question check what has been asked mark space for it 1st if possible you can make a broad outline and after that start working notes.
- Do not waste too much time in presenting working notes do it quickly but clearly and legibly. From this working notes whatever, you are getting place them in final answer portion.
- When a large number of working notes are there, give them the serial number and link those numbers in the answer portion.
- Leave proper side margin
- Write question no. very clearly and boldly
- 1st priority should be correctness then presentation.
- Start every new question from a fresh page.
- Take care that calculations are done correctly.
