Your aim must be clear if you want t perform in exam. If you will randomly go for the exam and go with the flow, you will end up solving less number of questions and will regret after the exam. So, your aim must be clear, and also strategy to achieve that aim.

For Example:

  • If your aim is 180 Marks, then you must also know that from where you will score this.
  • For 180 score, you must get 60 questions correct.
  • This 60 correct aim can be achieved by many ways considering you strong areas. But I highly recommend to score 50 correct in Military Aptitude and Mathematics itself. Its predictable and same type of questions repeat in each attempt.
  • You also must have clear idea that which sections of AFCAT Exam will you tackle in first 1 hour. So that maximum correct questions are done initially. It will boost your confidence and you can aim for 200+ in such systematic approach!
