  3. More Gyanni less expressivee More knowledge and less practice Not able to express clearly It is more art than science

  5. Ignoring Compulsory Paper 10-12% people fail in them

  6. Focussing too much / too little on optional Ideal time needs to be given You should avoid giving more or less time - give what is required

  7. Leaving questions This is PAAP Do not commit this sin Directly reduces your selection chance

  8. Not having enough writing speed Bad pen Weak muscles Not enough practice

  9. Not writing what examiner / question wants Do not write what you know (unless it the last resort) Try to suppress the urge of vomitting

  10. Focussing too little on essay 250 marks - yet hardly 20-30 hours are given to it It demands more time
