Strategy & Tips

The overall feel of the paper was easy to moderate. Reasoning was having mostly easy 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 which covered almost 70% of the paper. For GK, one should focus on those questions which one knows rather than wasting time.
