It is common knowledge that in the CBSE Board or any other state board till class 12th, candidates get enough time to read the question paper; write answers at length and also get time to revise the answers.

If a university or a BBA college conducts entrance exam in the month of April, and the Board exams get over in the last week of March, then a candidate should start the preparation in the month of April (previous year) to crack the BBA Entrance Exam.
