RRB ALP Revision Tips
- Revisit your quant notes, revision of calculation shortcuts or formulae you need to memorize.
- Similarly, revisit your GK notes and stay updated with all the latest important events nationally and globally.
- The trick to scoring marks in Mathematics Section is to attempt the questions on Quadratic Equations, Simplification and Approximation first and then going for Number Series. Hence, work on strengthening these topics.
- Revise topics that form the base for other topics and then move on to higher-level difficult topics that require you to have a knowledge of these base topics.
Hope these tips help. All the Best!
