AMC MCQ Recalls AUGUST 2020

During this pandemic, many of our subscribers had their exam postponed due to lock down. There are still some who managed to sit for the exam and provide us with past recalls. As for those who got their exam postponed, we believe that this is the best opportunity to practice more recalls. By doing recalls is one of the best way to tackle AMC Part I. Pilot questions may have tendency to be repeated in the AMC MCQ actual exam. We hope everyone is doing fine. Stay home, stay safe.
