English Language

The key to successfully clearing the English section is having strong basics. Go through your English notes and grammar rules thoroughly. Keep reading or improving vocabulary even days before the exam. This will always help in increasing the speed of reading and comprehension. Keep a habit of practicing mock tests. This will help boost speed, accuracy, and confidence

Numerical Ability

This section will test your speed and accuracy. Practice as many questions as possible with special attention to the topics of percentages, averages, simple and compound interest, and profit & loss. It would be helpful to have the basic formulae and concepts written out on a sheet so that you can revise them easily before the exam.

Reasoning Ability

Logic reasoning questions take time to work out. While practicing, provide special focus to blood relations, syllogisms, linear seating arrangements, circular seating arrangements, coding-decoding, inequalities, etc. This section can be time-consuming and lengthy. Therefore, make sure you pick and attempt questions wisely.
