- Mark Down Important Points
Write down important points of you answers at the back of you answer sheet as soon as you get it. Why? Because it must have happened to you many times that when you read questions, many possible answers come flashing in your mind but as soon as you start writing your answer you forget some of those points or might not even remember forgetting them. So, just to avoid that situation take out your pencil and jot down those points somewhere at the back of your answer sheet.
- Speak While Reading and Writing
It does not mean that you should literally speak and disturb others. It means that you should speak inside your mind. Speaking will help you understand the question better in a better way and you will write what you speak. It will help you not make any mistake while writing.
