4 Tips on How to Practice for Entrance Exams

• Try and solve the quiz in 25 minutes, so that you get accustomed to the entrance exam time restraints and increase your speed gradually.
• As almost all entrances have negative marking, it is advisable that you mark only those answers you are sure about.
• To a certain extent, elimination among the options help. But that requires practice of more and more numericals.
• At times guess work for a few questions work. But this is a highly subjective thing. So you need to practice with tests. Review each test with its answers. You can then see which of your guesses work and which are disastrous. And thus you devise your exam strategy.
