With just about 5 days remaining for the NABARD Assistant 2018 Mains exam, are you looking for some answers to the following questions:
- How much time should I spend on each section?
- Which section should I be attempting first?
If these questions are on your mind and you haven’t figured out an answer to them yet, this article has got just the right thing for you. Here we will be discussing toppers’ time strategy along with the order of attempt of the section. So, let’s dive right in!
Toppers’ Time Allocation Strategy For NABARD Assistant Mains
After checking and analyzing the time allocation strategy, we found that this is broadly what most mock test toppers used as their approximate time allocation:
- Reasoning: 35 minutes
- Quantitative Aptitude: 33 minutes
- General Awareness: 9 minutes
- Computer Knowledge: 13 minutes
NABARD Assistant Mains : Order Of Attempt
NABARD Assistant Mains exam has a duration of 90 minutes for the objective test. It has no sectional timing, you should start with the section you’re most comfortable with.
However, here’s one possible attempt strategy that you can follow:
- Computer Knowledge + General Awareness = 90 marks
- Quantitative Aptitude + Reasoning = 60 marks
Why this order?
The former is theoretical & requires lesser time to solve, and the latter requires calculation and mental ability, therefore takes more time to solve.
It is recommended to score maximum marks in the theoretical papers in less time (around 20-22 minutes) and use the remaining time (around 68-70 minutes) for the problem-solving ones.
(Note: We recommend using the above section-wise time allocation for NABARD as a guideline and not a target. Based on your strengths & weaknesses, you must change this to suit your strategy.)
