How should I manage these tests as there are only few day left for Prelims – 2015?

After solving, please go through solutions and rectify all your mistakes (our tests are not perfect, they have some mistakes here and there – we will rectify them and send our subscribers corrigendum soon).
  • Revise solutions and go back to textbooks to read more about the concept and reinforce it in your memory.
