The one u have no idea about is not helpful to mark them.
Mark the questions that if u have more time u can reason it out, like biostat.
Also questions u have two options so u can come back crutinize the Question stem well and then change or maintain ur answer.

i had the same question.
i try to mark as little as possible cause i found myself marking too much.
so i finally came to my mind and mark only the ones that need further thinking and that i might not be so sure in the first time reading it (i tend to do better when i check the marked qs, i guess more adrenaline i dont know why this phenomenon lol) but the ones that i strictly have no idea i just make the educated guess narrowing the most that i can do and not mark it, sometimes ends up being correct, other incorrect, but the thing is if i end up rechecking that question it will make no sense.
