Preparation Tips for SET 2022 Quantitative Skills

Check out the preparation tips of the Quantitative section of SET 2022 underneath. Go through them to learn effective ways to score well in the aforementioned section of the exam.

Tip #1: The Secret is Practice

Instead of cramming up theories, formulas and concepts, make it a habit to learn them through the application. Remember that practice is the key to success. Be consistent and practice as much as you can as it helps in increasing speed, accuracy, and efficiency. Also, make sure to break down the questions and simplify them before attempting.

Tip #2: Know Your Basics

Before picking up a question, make sure that you dig deep and get your basics clear. It helps in understanding the concepts and reaching the answer quicker.

Tip #3: Make Important Notes

While practicing for the SET 2022 Quantitative Skills, make sure to keep a notebook with yourself to jot down important notes. Keep revisiting and referring to them while revising for the exam.

Tip #4: Learn the Formulas

The formulas of the Quantitative Skills section need to be at the fingertips of the candidates. Without them, it is very difficult to solve the questions on time. Instead of mugging them up, try to solve a lot of sample papers so that you organically learn them through practice.

Tip #5: Ace the Art of Time Management

Since the SET exam is time-bound, it is crucial to know how many minutes to spend on each question. Try not to waste a lot of time on the difficult questions and make sure to solve the easy ones first. All the questions are of equal marks which means that a difficult question has the same weightage as the easier ones. Keep the tricky questions for the last.

Tip #6: Solve Sample Problems

Solving a lot of sample problems from the practice papers, mock tests and previous year’s question papers provides a rough understanding of the nature and type of questions. Keeping a self-timer while solving practice problems further helps in building the exam stamina and confidence.

Tip #7: Learn Shortcuts, Tricks & Techniques

To save time and reduce calculations, learn tricks and techniques along with their exceptions. Try solving sample problems using them. Even a lot of difficult questions can be solved easily through shortcuts by removing various steps of calculations. There are plenty of online tutorials, study materials and coaching institutes that provide shortcuts to solve the questions from various topics of SET 2022 Quantitative Skills. 

Tip #8: Say No to Guesswork & Yes to Smartwork

Although SET does not follow a negative marking scheme, a lot of time gets invested in solving questions through guesswork. Even if you are guessing an answer, make sure that it is not mindlessly marked. Weigh down other options and then make calculated guesswork. You can also use the elimination method and remove options to arrive at the correct answer.
