For HRM, Retail and all theory papers:

  • Students should always try and attempt concept testing questions as they fetch them full marks.
  • Keep aside 40 minutes for case study.
  • Read the case once and then the questions. Then again read the case and underline the most relevant points (based on the questions).
  • Write these points as FACTS OF THE CASE. Then start the answers.
