Why is it important to improve your test taking skills?

Having high level of academic knowledge alone cannot guarantee you a high score in competitive entrance exams. Without proper test taking skills, you won't be able to showcase your knowledge in the test. 

More than 95% students are unable to convert their knowledge into marks because of poor test taking skills. Test taking skills include skills like the ability to select the right questions to answer, time management skills, etc. 

These factors constitute 39 percent of your score, which means you can improve your score by 39 percent if you have better test taking skills.
