In order to be good at exams it is important to cover all these topics along with solving previous year question papers along with mock test papers. 

It is important to have basic understanding of all the topics so that you don’t have to struggle in the exams if questions are asked in a tricky way. The best result can only be achieved by solving as much questions possible during the mock test. Do care about the time limit as it matters the most in the exam.
