Reading your question paper carefully and consciously is the very first task you need to perform. If you skip that task, it will cost you heavily,said Muneeb Raza recalling how a firm, as a part of research, once shared an assessment of 200 objective questions with its job applicants. Although, in the last question it was written that they had actually skipped reading the complete instructions at the start of the questionnaire that in fact didn’t ask them to attempt the quiz.  

Off The School conducted a webinar titledLast-Minute Mastery: Exam Success Strategieson Saturday to provide students with smart and modern preparation methods and techniques to ace their exams. The webinar featured a panel of experts joined by a number of students from matric and intermediate classes.
