  30. 30. MCQs Answering• Understand clearly how and where the answers are to be marked.
  31. 31. MCQs• Understand whether there is any negative marking system for incorrect answers. This is quite common in many competitive exams.• If you do not understand the question properly look at the answer choices to make the meaning of the question.
  32. 32. MCQs Answering• If two answer choices are almost alike and confuse you, look at the question again and get some clues.• You may follow elimination method of answering and then make a calculated guess, when there is no negative marking system.• Even in a negative marking system you may take a chance if say out of 4 choices you have already eliminated two choices and you are deciding one from the balance two choices left.
  33. 33. MCQs Answering• If you are at guess work in answering a question without any clue, the longest response is correct answer in many cases.• Another tip is normally choice ‘C’ is less risky than other blind choices.
  34. 34. MCQs Answering• If you are not able to settle on the correct choice immediately, mark the question and come back later on rather than spending too much time.
  35. 35. MCQs Answering• Having attempted the choice, if you get confused and think that some other choice should have been made, you can change the answer.• However if you are equally uncertain about both the answers do not change the choice and keep the original answer as the correct choice.
  36. 36. MCQs Answering• While attempting answers pay special attention to the words like ‘none’, ‘not’, ‘never’, ‘all’, ‘always’ etc.
  37. 37. MCQs Answering• There is a possibility of some questions carrying multiple answers like ‘all the above’ or ‘none of the above’.• For the first choice all previous answers choices must be correct and for the second choice all the previous choice answers have to be incorrect.
  38. 38. Ask• If you don’t know, Ask !• If you are unsatisfied, Ask !• If you want to accomplish a goal, Ask !• If you are confused, for good counsel, Ask !• If you desire to communicate, Ask !• When you expect good things in life, Ask !
