Prepare geometry and modern math as they have the highest weight age in each exam.

Also, work on Input Output sums.

Preparing too much in the last few days can be a step backward.

My overall experience has been good. The faculty has been very helpful apart from teaching, they provided us with necessary and timely insights on every step relating to exam strategies and building overall profile.
