    See, it depends upon your own practice and homework. Managing time during an examination is something you must learn while you are busy with your preparations. Nobody will teach you how to manage your time. You can learn with your own practice. Even I have learnt it. I have learnt reading, studying, analyzing, typing, formatting and publishing in this website along with bringing up my two daughters who keep me busy and this I call an example of "Good Time Management" because in 17 months I have written 5 thousand pages on internet on my different blogs some of which I do not link with each other. :)
