As the students will have only 3 hours to complete all the sections so a good knowledge of time management is must be needed at that time. The candidate must know which part is required more time and they should work upon it. The candidate must be clear about which question is lengthy, which need to be skipped, which type of questions to attend 1st, etc. And this can be possible if he/she is alert about time management before the exam.
