Strategy & Tips

The overall feel of the paper was easy to moderate. Reasoning was having around 50% easy questions and remaining moderate questions. So the strategy was simply to follow the instructions carefully given in the questions and to only attempt the easy questions by carefully selecting them. While the strategy for Quant part would be to keep on solving the questions coming on your way and straight away leaving the questions in which you were likely to stick due to difficult calculations. In verbal section, focus should have been on reading comprehension and vocabulary.
