120 minutes for 150 questions. Therefore, timing is all important. You have less than one minute for each and every question. So you can’t afford much time on one question. If you don’t know the answer of any question, don’t stay there, just move on. Give less time to English and Awareness Portion because math and reasoning shall consume most of your time. Doubtful questions must be done at the end of the test.

Negative Marking –

If you give wrong answer to any question, you will forfeit 0.25 mark. So be careful while answering any question. If you are damn sure about any question, only then answer it. But we think if you are 50% sure about any question, you should try your luck. If out of four such doubtful questions, your one answer tends to be right, you will have no loss. If two are right, you will be on the benefit side.

Last but not the least, have complete faith in yourself. If you are hard worker, things will move in your favor. But this hard work must be combined with smart strategy.

Thanks and Best of luck.
