English Proficiency is a very small part of the entire exam, so there is a tendency to ignore it. Science students usually spend all their time on the technical subjects. However, do remember that the marks associated with each question in this section are the same as for science sections. Hence their effect on your final rank is equally critical. Secondly, if your English is strong, you can breeze through these question as most take less than half a minute to answer. This results in significant gain in marks for a short investment of your time. Therefore the marks you score here can improve your rank with respect to other students with equal science expertise!
