My suggestions for you readers are :
1. Have confidence in your subjects
2. try not to be nervous .if nervous dont panic hr people are very friendly
3. try to prepare in time pressure .dont take apti lightly. many of my friends could not cleared apti becoz they were overconfidence. Prepare well and update yourself.
