Hey,
You have not mentioned the course for which you want to take the AMU Exam. However, be it any subject or course for which you want to apply, the only key to clear any entrance exam is your preparation and clarity of basics.
Entrance exams usually test how much clarity you have in the basics of your subject. It would help if you practised a lot by solving previous year's papers, model papers, and mock question papers to know your weak areas. It doesn't matter whether you belong to any village/city, you can clear any entrance exam with hard work and sheer determination.
