Overall

Overall, the exam was easy to moderate. A good number of attempts

Overall Recommendation:

• Focus on
accuracy
. Because the paper is
easy to moderate, you may be able to do more questions than normal.
However, it is more important to get more of them right. In GA, CK/

solutions and be extremely vigilant. Simply by avoiding silly mistakes,
you can push your accuracy in these 2 sections above 90%
