Points to remember for students appearing for pen & paper test


  • In offline exam, check that you have got the entire question paper and no page is missing in between because of printing mistake. 
  • Attempt all subjects in 3 rounds and not attempt subject wise, not allotting equal or fixed time per subject 
  • Attempt questions in the order of ease of doing them, where ease depends upon both the ability to solve a question and time taken to solve it.
