Understand concepts well and practice problems
While studying, try to grasp the main concept very clearly. Objective questions (MCQs) test your concept thoroughly. You need consistent practice to improve accuracy.
Analyse your mock tests
If you are getting too much negative marks in the mock tests, then you need to analyse your tests and find out the silly mistakes you are doing. Work on weak concepts/topics and clear your doubts from teachers. Don’t repeat the same mistakes in next test.
Make a notebook containing your mistakes
Make a notebook containing your silly mistakes, what went wrong, unnecessary calculations, time spent on solving the question, etc. Revise this notebook every time before the problem solving session or next mock test.
Read the question carefully
Read the question carefully to understand what is being asked and what is given to you. See the options clearly and then only start solving the question.
Answer questions in a strategic order
Solve easy questions first to build confidence. In objective tests, it’s good to eliminate obvious incorrect answers.
Try to avoid answering questions in last few minutes
Last minute hustle may increase the chances of mistakes and negative marking, so keep the last 10 or 15 minutes to check whether you correctly marked the answers. Fill the OMR sheet carefully.
Use intelligent guessing (not random), only if required
If you feel that you have answered very few questions and stand no chance to clear the exam, then you may try this method. Keep in mind that it should not be just random guesses, you must have some idea about why you are selecting the answer like you have doubts in only two options.
Relax during the exam
Expect some exam anxiety. It’s normal. Use relaxation techniques if you find yourself tensing and getting anxious during the exam. Take slow, deep breaths. Don’t think about the fear. Acknowledge that you have done, and are doing, your best.
