While answering the questions of an RC, never assume the correctness of the outside knowledge that you may be having about the topic of the passage. There are certain questions that are deliberately framed in such a way so as to make this trap possible.
While calculating probability of events, multiple cases of a single event are represented by the sum of their probabilities whereas sub-events within a main event are represented by the product of their probabilities.
While building your vocabulary, make sure to understand the usage of the word along with its meaning. This can be done by memorizing the meanings and making mental notes of their usage whenever these learnt words appear in any text that you might be reading.
Do not leave the questions with lots of calculations towards the end. The probability of making silly calculation errors increases towards the end of the test.
The summary of a passage should not contain personal opinions, judgmental statements or conclusions. It should merely state the same arguments mentioned in the passage in a clear, concise manner.
While solving Algebra questions, be alert when it comes to positive and negative terms during expansion of binomial expressions.
Some of the options of a Reading Comprehension question are too extreme to be correct. These options twist the author's point of view by exaggerating facts.
While solving the DI and QA sections, easy questions but with tedious calculations require prior attention. Do not leave them towards the end.
While solving questions based on Jumbled Sentences, after choosing the correct option, read the sentences in the order as mentioned in that option to verify the correctness of your answer.
Time allotment for Quantitative questions is very important. Look through each question at least once. Some questions are easier than the rest and yield solutions faster. Do not get stuck on one question causing you to neglect the others.
While solving question types based on grammar rules involving multiple statements as part of the same question, the analysis of one of those statements can help in eliminating a few options and reduce the effort of analysing all the statements.
Most DI Questions require you to interpret data which is in tabulated or visual representation form. Here, approximation of values is more important than exact figures.
At times, in a reading comprehension question, the initial words of all or some of the options are same. This is done to increase the length of the options, thus making them difficult to interpret. The best workaround is to omit these common words and read only the uncommon part of the option.
A typical mistake people make is answering the question they thought they read, instead of the one which was actually asked. The test setters may deliberately include options which correspond to misinterpretations of the questions.
Some of the options in Reading Comprehension questions are true or can be inferred from the passage. However, it is very important to check if they are relevant as the answer to the question asked.
While solving Modern Maths questions, It is convenient to shift to logarithmic expressions when working with higher powers of variables.
In the Jumbled Sentences questions, watch out for any chronology clues - specific order of events taking place one after the other.
Although learning multiplication tables, squares and cubes is not a necessity, it will definitely help reduce solving time.
Before tackling any fill in the blank question, read the complete sentence once, without looking at the options. Think of a word which will fit the blank. Then look for the word or its nearest synonym in the given options.
In algebra based questions, if a direct answer is not obtainable, try substituting the options in place of the variables. More often than not the correct answer can be found out this way.
