How to prepare for AFCAT Examination:
AFCAT is basically knowns for the easiest written exam. The written exam is very easy but the competition is very tough. There are very few seats in AFCAT around 25-30 seats in all over India. you just have to do better than other candidates. Try to attempt maximum questions. and Do your best subjects first in which you can tick maximum correct answers.
Attempt your question one by one start with English because this is the easiest portion of the exam in which you can score well. Then move to the General awareness this can be also easy to tick. Do the numerical questions at last because these questions take a lot of time and might be missed your other portion because of this.
