  • Take an online Test- After a few days of preparation, it is very essential to check your strength. Mock Test is the only way to check your strength, weakness and time-management capacity.

2. Verbal and logical reasoning:
This part consists of 26 questions with 26 marks. We can say this part either more easy or more difficult.

  • Understand your options- You can’t make a good decision if you don’t know exactly how many choices you really have. So, take some time to understand the options that are available to you.
  • Don't overthink- Overthinking a decision can through you off making a good decision faster than just about anything else.
  • Eliminate the unwanted- While you are taking a question at that very momment you can easily eliminate the two things and stuck down with 2 options. Some times this elimination concept is good to choose the correct one. Making a good decision isn’t always about focusing on what you want. Often, it’s about focusing on what you don’t want.
