1. Tips/Tricks

Do you think attempting more questions is the key to success in Prelims? Is there an ideal number of questions one should attempt? How did you decide to attempt those questions which you were not sure of?

Snehaja(AIR:103): There is no ideal no of questions. In the first round, I attempted all the questions that i was sure of. In the second round i tried tackling those questions where i could eliminate 2 options and in the remaining tried to use some logic and reasoning. I completely avoided guess work and didnt touch those questions for which i had no idea.
