Doing recalls is one of the best way to tackle AMC Part I. However, many find it difficult to get recalls as nowadays not many candidates would be willing to share their experiences or recalls to other candidates. Worry not, we are constantly keeping in touch with all our past candidates and most of them would share with us their recalls so that we could solve for them.
