How to Practice MCQs in a Practice/Test Mode

(Steps to Follow)

  • Write Down/Prepare a Word template with the Number of MCQs that to be Answered. E.g.: 01 – 60 or 01-25 etc.
  • Make minimum three columns for each Chapter you practice because your target is 01 Basic Preparation and 02 Revisions. If you have a data like this, you can analyze your preparation thoroughly and can be corrected the mistakes and you will be knowing weak areas.
  • Set the Alarm Clock. Initially 1 minute per MCQ. Allot 60 minutes for 60 MCQs, 20 minutes for 20 MCQs.
  • Start answering one by one Question without looking into key answers.
  • Finish answering one-line MCQs to save the time while reading a question.
  • Mark only those you are 100% confident (Negative Marking is live)
  • Start answering remaining ones after finishing one-liner. Here also mark only 100% confident ones.
  • By the time you finish one round, you must have answered at least 50% questions.
  • Now investigate the questions you have left. Some answers will strike when you are reading the question the second time. Finish answering those.
  • By the time your round 2 finished, you must have answered 80% of the Paper. Remember this is your Positive Score. Keep it preserved. Meanwhile, time also must be running out. I suggest don’t attempt any more questions as you have a Negative marking.
  • Submit the Paper/Stop your practice test session.

Once you complete your practice MCQs test, now it is time to analyze the answers and take a note of the mistakes you have made.
