  9. In reasoning section you must prepare the sitting arrangement puzzle as they are time consuming, so practice these questions.
  10. As we have around 3 to 4 questions of current in every competitive exam, so prepare current section also.

  12. From today prepare the short notes of important points and news from the newspaper which will surely help you in the exam.
