When analysing, look at what you solved but took too much time, also look at what you solved but gt wrong and look at what you left but could have been solved easily.
  • Do not focus on new topics
    Aspirants should not start anything new in the last minute. Focus on the strong areas. Preparing new topics at the last hour can mar your entire preparation strategy. Instead revise the topics you have prepared.
  • Stay disciplined, calm and decisive
    The candidates must know to select questions well. The purpose of analysing your knowledge and speed is to enable good question selection. Each question is a test of your decision making skills-if you find the question easy, answer it. If it is time consuming postpone it.

Reasoning Ability

Reasoning is one of the most scoring section in the exam.

Long time taking questions can be solved later such as seating arrangement, puzzles, machine input/output. Questions might be tricky but read the questions first before applying any method to solve the question. Solve questions using graphs, diagrams, tables etc. Concentrate properly while solving the questions.

Quantitative Aptitude

Candidates should solve the quantitative Aptitude section at the end. Atleast dedicate 22-25 minutes for this section. Solve easy and scoring questions first. Avoid solving tricky questions.
