Hello student yes you should appear for the exam and at the time of counselling you should clear all the doubts in case if they didn't agree and can't take your admission then you can drop a year for which you're already prepared by not appearing in the exam but if you appear in the exam you'll gain experience an overview of exam also a chance what if they'll correct your information at the time of admission.
