Before we move on to the sectional tips, take proper note of following -
  • Since composite time of 1 hour has been provided, you need to take proper care of Time Management. This is important because you need to attempt sufficient questions in order to clear the sectional as well asoverall cutoff. This will be a tough job if you do not divide proper time among all three sections.
  • Apart from this, focus on your Speed and Accuracy as well. These factors are vital for any exam. There is no point attempting huge number of questions if you don’t attempt them accurately because negative marks penalty will only ruin your chances of making the cut. 

As we have been repeatedly saying, select questions that you attempt first smartly. Try to attempt topics that are less time consuming first. We have listed below such topics that should be attempted first from different sections.

  • Cloze Test
  • Fill in the blanks
  • Spotting Errors
  • Vocabulary based questions from Reading Comprehension.
  • You can attempt the parajumbles and reading comprehension questions after you finish these questions if the time permits. If the RC provided is story based, you can change the order and attempt it first since such passages are comparatively easy.

  • Number Series
  • Simplification/ Approximation
  • Data Interpretation (Ratio and Average based questions)
  • After you are done with these topics, you can move on to the miscellaneous questions if there still is time..
  • Do not spend more than a minute or two on any particular question. If you have even a little doubt on the question, it would be advisable to move on to the next and come back to it if the time permits.

  • Inequality
  • Syllogism
