  • Candidates who are less proficient in reading should attempt Reading Comprehension (RC) and Logical Reasoning questions alternatively. With one RC question and then one or two questions of LR. This will help in not losing the focus in the exam.
  • Candidates with strong reading skills should start with two or more questions of RC. Once candidates start to lose focus, (LR) questions will act as fillers.
  • The strategy of using fillers between RC questions can also be combined with parajumbles. The combination of light and dense question can be of great help.
  • In any case candidates should not stick to one question. If the answer is unachievable then moving to the next question is a best option.
