  • Try to avoid scribbling if you have written an invalid answer leave the page and proceed to a fresh new page use your time sensibly.
  • Give simple and paragraph introduction for theory answers.
  • Use headings and sub-headings to avoid conflict while answering questions so the evaluator will understand your answer in simple and straight forward manner.

  • Give a simple and detail introduction at the start by picking a term from the question and explain it in a definition manner or use simple words which mix well with the question during introduction avoid unnecessary explanation which is not matching with the question he asked and at conclusion of the answer always remember to give your viewpoint which agreeable by everyone including the evaluator going against his view point will reduce your marks.
  • writing part(B) early first in your answer sheet is recommended to get more time at the end of the examination to write part(A) of the question paper.
  • Write every part(A) question in full half side of 1 page or more and for part(B) write it above 1 and half of the page or more but don’t spend more then 1hour 15 minutes on part(B) use time wisely ensure you had attempted at least two questions from part(B) and minimum 3 from part(A) in the above explained method just to ensure you wont get failed in the exam understanding the logic will increase your confidence levels in the exam hall.
