Practicing previous year question papers plays a very important role. This will not only help you to understand the question pattern but also practice time management. It is very important to solve these papers. You might get some common questions from it. Try to solve the previous year’s question paper of at least the last ten years. Appear for the mock tests as well.

You will get only a limited time to complete your whole question paper. Don’t waste too much time the reading question paper. You will get extra time to read the question paper. Try to read the whole paper within that limit and allot time for each session.
