**Some suggestions**

All the question are easy, betweem in every question there are unnecessary data. Don’t confused with that. First read the question, then make rough calculation. Try to solve as many as possible. Questions are very easy, so don’t recalculate that. The 1^{st} question are very very big. So start from question number 20(I’ve started). Finish upto 35 in 30 mins & it is possible(I have done 12). After that shift to question no.10 finish that in upto 20 in 15 mins(if any problem confuses a you leave that & you can solve atleast 7 problems in 15 mins , I have done). After that start from 1& move unwards. In this way you can answer upto 24-25,take a calcuter it is allowed question. Be confident. My suggestion please don’t guesss there is negative marking. you can solve the problems.

Please go with calculater & I was not sure, but I think the question are same for all the students. The interview is very very easy. The panel wars very friendly. As I am suggesting to you, one of my friend sonalisa also suggested me prior to the interview & that helped me a lot in getting through the written, so a very special thanks to my friend sonalisa & the panel of interviewer who selected me. I hope my suggestion will help you

All the best!
