2) Problem solving is important and giving lengthy answers will not help. Think smart and write smartly, if a solution takes more than 8 steps to solve, take a deep breath and re-think your approach.

3) You need to make a conscious effort of keeping track of your speed and accuracy to solve the questionnaire.

4) Mock tests and model papers are a must and can be practiced to brush up your skills no matter how many times you have already solved one. Every attempt can make you realise something that you missed earlier.

5) Being innovative and intuitive creates a great balance at solving problems that are not from a course book. Practice does come in handy while solving a questionnaire however common sense should not be dissuaded.

6) Always read the questionnaire with ease and do not rush into answering quickly as nothing ruins matters than being overly eager to finish first.

9) Revision is the key to keep a sound mind, as picking up more topics right in the end days of preparation will only add up to great confusion and lesser outcome.
