2) Do not make guesses. There are high chances that you will end up with a wrong answer. Instead, attempt only those questions you are sure about. 
3) If you are weak at vocabulary questions, don’t panic. There will be hardly 2 to 4 questions from vocabulary and if you are not able to, you can also skip them. 
4) When you are attempting fill in the blanks with two fillers, fill in the first blank and then relate to the second blank. You will be able to choose the right answer.

5) In sentence rearrangement problems, if you are unable to solve, arrange the first and last sentence and you will get idea of the rest.
