Concentrate more on problems as chances of scoring full marks or at least is more than is theory. Through study of each & every chapter is expected. Try to solve 5 years university papers which can give the confidence to solve accurate paper in 2.5 hours. Now keep in mind that paper is not for 60 marks & its for 75 marks & you have to solve 5 questions.

You cannot ignore any chapter as all chapters are equally important. There is no paper pattern or weightage is decided for subjects like FM & SSF.
