Now let us start with the tips and exam day Dos and Don'ts for TISSNET 2017

 

Ideally, there is not much preparation you need to do at this stage. As Sandeep Manudhane, Chairman, PT Education states, “To be frank, the test is easy. Anyone can easily solve 40-45 questions from the 60 questions give. For a good, well-prepared student, answering around 50-55 questions should be possible. Accuracy also is likely to be high since the questions are not tricky.”

  1. Practice Test in computer based mode: TISSNET is a computer based test, taking a practice test or mocks a couple of days before the exam would make you prepared for the D-Day fully. Make sure that you take the mocks in computer based mode only.

  2. Don’t attempt any new topics: You will not be able to understand the concepts if you start a new topic at this moment. It is important for a successful preparation to not to start a new topic in the last few days of the test.

  3. Time Management: To complete the test on time, it is important to allot equal time to all the sections. If you allot at least 15 to 20 minutes to each section, so that you have requisite time left for revision. Do not attempt questions which you are not sure of to escape the wrath of negative marking of ¼ marks.

  4. Relax and Don’t Stress: As said by an expert, TISSNET is one of the low difficulty level tests, candidates must not take stress rather stay calm and confident about their preparations.
