  1. Prepare a timetable that allows you to cover all of the topics at least a week before the exam.

  4. Attend as many practice tests as feasible in between studies. Mock tests provide a clear image of how to approach subject preparation and how to effectively manage time in order to pass the exam.
  5. Solve as many previous years’ exam questions as you can. This will improve the precision and speed of the process. Each publication provides new insights into how to solve various types of difficulties.
