I am dedicating this section for the improvement of vocabulary for exams. It takes a huge time to master this section of English, but if you prepare it in a planned way then you can score sufficient marks. Almost 15 to 20 questions appear in the form of antonyms and synonyms. Ignorance  of vocabulary is suicidal in exams.

These words are very important for various competitive exams. From my own experience I can assure you that these words are being repeated again and again in different exams. Learn these words and smile in examination hall when they come in front of you!
