  1. Use 15 minutes reading time in optional questions.
  2. While reading the questions writing main points on question paper. This will make writing quickly when writing answers
  3. Every paper there are 4-6 easy Marks. Make sure try to cash these marks quickly.
  4. Use builts when your running out of time.
  5. Avoid illegible writing
  6. Question 1 contain 4 professional marks. These are very easy to earn make sure you get it.
  7. Allocate 1.8 mint to each mark. This is very important

I hope these above points helps you to manage time in p7 paper. Thank you.
