Candidates need to attempt questions not just quickly but correctly as well. Do not get stuck on one question. Exam time is not the right time to challenge the questions. Be quick enough to decide on which question it seems right to invest time. Questions which can be solved easily need to be attempted first. Long and time-consuming questions should be entertained later.
