Keep an Eye on the Clock: As with any exam you require to know how much time is remaining so you know when it is time to move from one question to the another and be sure that you complete before time lapses.

Answer Questions Strategically: Identify keywords in questions. This can assist you to figure out what type of answer the question is looking for. Most of the time questions will present four answers but one of those answers will be more strategic and somewhat better than the others. If a question confuses you mark it and move on but remember to come back later and answer it. Even a blind guess gives you a 20 chance of the correct answer. If possible start by dropping the options that you know are incorrect. When guessing trust your abilities. If an answer feels correct go with it. Theres no need to overthink a question when you dont have an answer. Using too much time on a single challenging question is also a serious mistake because it may prevent you from answering easier questions later in the exam.
