While most of us stay prepared with the subject to take up an examination, still we lag behind while attempting the exam. A few common mistakes as mentioned below should be immediately done away with:

Read questions:

As soon as you get the question paper, just go through it very carefully. Read all the instructions, analyse which section of the question paper you can complete first and confidently. Prioritise the sections of the question paper and then start writing the exam after you have read it carefully.

Confidence is the key:

While attempting a test exam, it is highly advisable to attempt those questions which you are confident of providing good answers. This ensures that you have timely secured those marks which you are prepared for. You may attempt other questions after completing all the questions you know well.

Time Management:

It is extremely crucial to manage time. While attempting mock tests, one must stick to the deadlines and should attempt questions within the stipulated time frame. This gives you an upper hand as to how much time would typical question demands. Also keep an eye on the clock and try not to rush while giving exams.


Try to attempt long questions first. Mostly, time gets over when you start attempting long answers because we try to keep it for the last. Always try to attempt those questions first which are going to be lengthy. Also, keep word limit in mind. If the word limit is mentioned in any question try to complete your answer within the word-count. Try not to exceed it by more than 10 to 15 words.
