Let’s look at few last minute tips which will help you score high and nail the AFCAT 2019 exam:
Know The Syllabus
The key to crack AFCAT exam is to understand and know the exam syllabus and exam pattern. You need to keep in mind that subjects are a little different in the AFCAT exam. General Awareness, Verbal Ability in English, Numerical Ability and Reasoning and Military Aptitude Test are the sections and you need to divide the given 120 minutes among these sections appropriately.
To avoid any surprises on the exam day, you need to have a proper plan in mind. Having practiced for the exam for many days, you would surely know which sections you are better at and which sections may be challenging. As there is no sectional timing in the AFCAT exam, try to attempt the sections you are good at first and later move to the weakest sections. However, you need to keep in mind that there is negative marking, therefore do not waste much time on a single question. If you are not able to solve it, move on to questions which you are able to solve easily.
Do Not Experiment
Do not experiment by starting a new topic a day before the exam. It will not yield any results, instead will create more confusion and may create panic in you. Rather, you could revise the topics which you are comfortable and clear about.
Managing the given 120 minutes is very crucial to crack AFCAT exam. It would be very tough for you if you spend too much time on a few questions and realize later that time is almost up and there are lots of questions left. Skip any questions you feel are taking more time, you can come to them in the end if you have time.
