  3.   Keep navigating through the questions and answer those questions first, which are easy and have direct answers.
  4.   Follow the deletion method wherever possible. If you are fortunate enough, you may come across at least 10-15 questions where you can find the correct answer by omitting the wrong answers if you are sure of them.
  5.   Try to solve questions which have mathematical calculations in the first two hours. This will give you enough time to avoid calculation mistakes.

All that matters is how many questions you have answered CORRECTLY. So try to avoid the tendency to answer all questions and rely on luck!
