  • You must practice and solve as many questions as you can on a daily basis.

  • List down the questions/ topics which were difficult and start working on them.

  • The motive of mock test should be to analyze and improve your performance with each test.

  • If your concepts are not clear, then you should discuss it with their friends or teachers in advance.

  • Remember that there is a negative marking, so guessing an answer won’t help. Furthermore, it can decrease your chances of qualifying the test.

  • Before you start to solve question paper, it is advised to write down the important formulas on the rough sheets.

  • Do not stress yourself by studying all day long. Take short breaks in between to give your mind some rest.
