Speed and Accuracy

Speed and accuracy is one aspect that would outshine your performance. Practicing daily would help you in this regard. Try to attempt maximum number of questions with 100% accuracy because in an exam like this, you cannot afford to lose even one-fourth of marks.

Read the Question Properly

Understand what is written in the question. Do no hastily skip the question just by looking at it, especially in Numerical Ability. You might just be able to do it if you read it properly. So, before skipping, read it carefully because sometimes the questions that look difficult, are actually easy to solve, especially Puzzles. 

Avoid Guesswork

There is 1/4th of negative marking for every wrong answer. Therefore, avoid guess work as much possible. Accuracy is as important as speed in this exam. Try the elimination method to eliminate 2-3 options before making calculated guesses, and refrain from any blind guesswork.

Do not Waste Time on One Question

Do not get stuck only on one question and waste your valuable time. Remember that you would get 60 Min. for 100 questions i.e. 20 min for each section. So, manage your time accordingly.
