      This is the most simple and straight forward approach to attempt a paper . in this approach you attempt a paper as it comes , which means you start from quesn 1 annd go to quesn 120 in a fixed sequence. A slightly modified and better form of this approach is that you decide the sequence in which you would like to answer the questn paper . for example if  after browsing you find that chemistry is easiest followed by physics and ultimately maths , so you attempt the paper in that sequence  but once you start with one subject you attempt it sequentially and completely
    the disadvantages of this method are
- since all the subjects have individual cutoffs , so over performing in one  subject and under performing in another ,will be of no use.
-since you are attempting the questions in a sequential manner there is a possibility that you may not be able to reach the last question. so you may leave some questions which were easy .

      In this approach you spend 5 minutes to browse the paper and than decide the sequence in which you would like to attempt  the paper and also allocate time to different sections of the paper and follow it subsequently.

       Jayasuriya the Sri Lankan batsman changed the way one day cricket is played . Initially the  playing strategy used to be to play safe in the first 15 overs so that you dont loose wickets but Jayasuriya played with a different strategy to take the advantage of field restrictions in the first 15 overs. In this approach you spend 15% of total time (approximately 27 minutes) to run through the entire paper . During this you find out memory based quesns and solve them immediately . So by the end of this time
-you have seen the entire paper
-solved all easy questions of the subjects
-clearly decided the sequence in which you would like to attempt the  paper .

           this approach is based on the examiner's mind of setting the paper .Always keep in mind that normally questions in any competitive exam can be categorised into 3 areas
-easy - 25% questions
-average - 60% questions
-difficult - 15% questions
      In this approach we attempt the paper in three rounds
 first round for easy questions and should be ideally 15% of the total time
 second round is for average questions and should be ideally 70% of the total time
 third round is for difficult questions and should ideally be of 15% of the total time
   So you should focus on careful selection of the easy and average questions and avoid difficult questions in the first and second round .Come back to them once you have completed the entire paper
     while starting the second round it is recommended that you attempt the paper in reverse order . That is instead of going back to quesn 1 , you start from quesn 120 . The reason for this is that you have just read quesn 120 and it is fresh to your memory so you would take less time to solve that question.


  Have you ever thought how much time does it take to mark an answer in the response sheet . Most of  the time we do not think about it because we think that it is too small a thing to think about . But you would be surprised to know that normally the time taken to mark a response varies between 6 to 10 seconds per question . so if you attempt 90 questions and take on an average 8 seconds to mark the responses , the total time consumed is = 8 X 90 = 720 seconds = 12 minutes . In a competitive  exam like AIEEE , this is indeed a significant amount of time !
      before coming to know how can we mark faster , let us find out the methods adopted by the students .

  mark the responses simultaneously . so in this method you solve quesn 1 and then mark it and so on . Advantage is that you do not face a situation where you are not able to mark all the responses due to scarcity of time . But the disadvantage is that every time you mark to response , there is a shift in the thinking mode of mind from solving a question to marking and darkening a circle . In this method a student wastes a lot of time moving from  question booklet to  response sheet and back.
   solve the questions first and then mark the responses in the end . The disadvantage is that at times you get so busy in solving questions that you do not realise that the time is over and in the end you are not able to mark the complete responses
  but the advantage is that you save on time and moreover the concentration is also higher .
METHOD 3 (the best method)
    in this method it is recommended that you mark the responses after first two rounds of problem solving or after  2 hours of start of the examination. By following this method you do not loose concentration and time  and at  the same time you do not reach a situation where you are not able to mark  the complete responses. After the first two rounds adopt METHOD 1 to mark the responses and then solve the rest of the paper.
   I hope these  tips helps you in maximizing your performance .
                              Thanking  you all and best of luck
