Here are some points to ponder before appearing in the exam. 

Strategy for Reasoning-


Reasoning is one of the most decisive sections of exam. Candidates find difficulty in attempting the questions within a short period of time.

Points to ponder-

1. Firstly attempt linked questions instead of individual questions in order to have maximum attempts as quickly as possible.

2. Keep in mind the sectional cut off also and channelize your attempts accordingly.

3. Skip the complex questions like Complex Sitting arrangement  at first instance and go for  it only if time alows.

4. Make your mnemonics for topics like Analogy, coding- decoding etc.

Strategy for Quantitaive Aptitude

1. First of all, do not start the section randomly from any question.

2. Plan a set of linked questions and attempt them first. Furthermore, attempting five Linked questions consumes less time than attempting 5 individual questions.

3. Implement short tricks if possible in order to consume time.


Strategy for English

While Reasoning and Maths are very important but English is the section where you can boost your marks.

1.  Firstly Do not go for the passage at first instance .

2. Try to focus on sentence arrangement , error detection etc  and sections which consumes less comprehension time.

3. Do not try to understand the comprehension part . Just try to understand the tone of passage.


Strategy for Genaral Awareness

Though General awareness is a vast Subject bt can be dealt readily. Keep an eye on current affairs along with topics like books and authors, Important places, Important Days, Governmental schemes etc.



Finally,   All the Very Best for the Exam and keep in mind that it is shortlisting process so do not get too much tense.
