I have been doing a couple of physics past paper mcq and not been fairing well in them, as my avg marks are usually around 11/15.
What do I have to do to improve these, can someone impart the wisdom of doing multiple choices?

If you know your work, MC is easy 20 marks. If you're struggling, you really need to clear up your understanding of the course.

Don't cut your fingernails leading towards the exam, they can be helpful for multiple choice.

Yeah the M/C is designed so you can get good marks easily. The average studney who knows what they're doing should be able to at least get ~15+/20

Huehuehue; alternatively using a thumb tack would also work

according to our school, doing what you are alluding to is actually violating exam rules.

rules apparently (According to school) say that no marking in any way can be made on the exam paper during reading time....

at uni; reading time is more useful for example arriving a little late to the exam venue
