Tips by Our Experts

Quantitative Ability

  • Focus on getting 6 Questions right by identifying the easy questions and solving them within 15 Minutes.
  • There are usually 3 or 4 easy to solve problems that can be attempted within 5 minutes.
  • After attempting these, you are left with almost 20 Minutes to attempt the remaining four. Even if you get one question correct, you are likely to clear the expected cut-off.
  • The key to success in this section is to identify those 6 questions which are easier, and solve them quickly.

Reasoning Ability

  • Emphasise on attempting the individual questions first as these questions do not need a common data to be solved and each can take only 2 minutes to solve.
  • However, most of such questions can be solved in less than a minute. Try to solve 9 such questions within the first 15 minutes.
  • The remaining questions include topics like Data Arrangement and Data interpretation. We strongly recommend solving the Data Arrangement questions in the end because there is a high possibility for them to go wrong. Hence, if out of the remaining 10 Minutes, if you get 2 to 3 questions correct, you can clear the expected cut-off with ease.

Verbal Ability

  • Answer the questions based on Sentence Correction, Error Spotting and Vocabulary as you start. Also, try to solve those 20 questions within 15 Minutes.
  • Next, attempt the Reading Comprehension. Don’t read the entire passage, instead read the questions and then try to find the answer from the passage.
  • You can easily answer the direct questions in less than 5 minutes and then move on to attempt the other questions as there are no negative markings.
  • Don’t waste time in interpretation related questions. In case that you get a short passage, it is better to attempt it them at last because the questions can be harder.
  • There are questions based on Critical Reasoning too. Try to attempt 5 to 6 of these in 10 Minutes.
  • If you follow this strategy, you would attempt more than 30 questions in 30 Minutes. If you have the accuracy of 85%, you can easily clear the cut-off and still be left with 5 more minutes to attempt the other questions.

All the Best!
