Analyzing Mocks – How to do it properly

In the study plan, mock tests are recommended almost every day, especially towards the end. Analysing mocks is as important as attempting them. Unless you analyse your performance, your preparation strategy won’t be fruitful. Here’s how to analyse mocks properly.

  • Review the Wrong Questions. Find where your concept or approach went wrong. Click on Review Wrongand this takes you through solutions of only the wrong attempts.
  • Attempt the Unattempted ones. You can take an untimed test of only the Unattempted questions in the mock test. Click on Review Un attemptedand this allows you to attempt all the ones left unanswered.
  • Review the Correct Answers. Check if there were better solutions or approaches to the one you adopted.
  • Practice tests from your Weak Areas. Oliveboard’s Adaptive Engine figures the top three areas that you need to work on the most based on your performance data and gives you lessons and tests on those topics. After each mock test, find new lessons + tests on your weak areas by visiting theImprove
