In the 15 mins reading time ignore the MCQ's, but go direct to the highest marking questions. Read the requirements and plan your answers. You can make notes on the question paper n use your calculator. Decide which question you will first, putting them in order of favourite first and then least facourite last.
Stick to the time allocation of 1.8 minutes per 1 mark and then you must move on.
Then move on to your MCQ's. Answer those you know instantly first and then go back through the others. For those you know you have absolutely no idea on, do not waste time staring at it, just guess! At least then you have a 1 in 4 chance of being right :)
Hope this helps?

I have a different opinion from my fellow Student.
In my exam, I utilized my reading time in solving the MCQ's, And within the 30 mins after the exam started i finished all of my MCQ and it gave me 2.5 Minutes per marks , because of which i attempted whole of my paper and cleared both my F6 and F7 exam.
DO not Stuck on any MCQ. If you really want to complete your paper without getting tensed , firstly do all the MCQ you can finish as soon as you start it , So you'll get a headup on time.
Later in the exam you may attempt rest of your MCQ's
Hope this helps.
