    how to activate the pc and to do test
    now mostly people who take the test for the first time dont clear it so please please please please dont get dishearted.
    Only 5 or 6 clear it among those in one batch .
    Instruction given is jo nia hota chor dain .
    For evey six months they conduct this test ok.
    one should be very clear that there will be a pc(obviously ) with a white board piece pasted on the table,you r required to
    do rough work on it with a white doard marker.
    Strategy and doe's and donts
    ok people u must be fully aware of the fact that the environment there will be quite differen then your home small cabins and two cabins on one bench,beware of your partner he will do stupid things like calculating in the air,waving his hand exectra so dont get disturbed just keep your mind totally on the test no matter what happens.
    There will be a review question option but be ware it will only activate when youv done 70 questions,so is k chakker mai nai pernay ka kia mamu.
