  • Similarly in Quants, attempt Simplification, DI, Quadratic Equation and Number Series, Algebra, Profit and Loss and Ratio and Proportions before moving on to other topics.
  • In English, attempt the RC, Error Spotting, Cloze Test and Phrase Replacement first. Then move on to Para Jumbles, etc.

Take Care of Yourself!

  • It is very common to feel a little anxious because of the exam. If you feel that it is too much to handle, try some breathing exercises to ease yourself.
  • Quality sleep is very important for Exam preparation. If you don’t sleep well, it will affect your memory and reasoning ability. This hampers your speed. So, Sleep for at least 8 hours per day.
  • Having a Balanced Diet is equally important. Your brain is also a muscle, and it needs the energy to function properly. This is especially true during exams. However, do not overeat as it may make you feel uneasy.
  • Finally, If you come across questions you’ve never even seen before, stay calm! Solve the questions without panicking and if you are unable to do so, skip it.
