We have a saying in my cultural never give up on god's mercy, there is always darkness in the tunnel but the light will evolve.


Ask your self what makes you get those question right ? Than ask why am I getting the other wrong?

The trick here is not the amount of study and the number of books you have read no its not, it is all formulated around the concept of your ability to recognize the given scenario.

Every question has on average four choices which means your main task is to recognize the twisted subject and connect it with the choices you got as a wise man once said facts are facts but knowledge is correlating these facts together.

so, why you might get low scores on these questions it could be;

1- language barrier
2- understanding the question
3-overthinking the question
4- time management failure
ETC..
what I am trying to say try to recognize where are you lacking the ability to score higher

good luck

Smile hey

I would also advice you to check your weak areas and try to work on that. It might mean you have a general understanding and you might only need to work on facts and details. Best of luck! You can do this!!
