Practice Practice Practice

Reasoning is a section where there are a limited number of tricks available to reach answers quickly and hence a candidate has to rely on improving their mental capacity to perform well. Regular practice is the only way to get better in this section. Make sure you are solving as many questions as possible. Take the help of the previous year question papers to understand the type of questions asked in the section and then use Mock Tests and Sample Papers as your trusted resources.

Learn Time Management

When it comes to the Reasoning section, it is easy to lose track of time. This can prove to be disastrous as there is no sectional time limit in MAH MBA/ MMS CET 2021. Hence, it is best to focus on solving the easy questions first and move on from the difficult ones while wasting as little time as possible. Here are the number of good attempts for this section based on last year's paper.

Section

Good Attempts

Logical Reasoning

41 - 44

Abstract Reasoning

19 - 21

All Questions Carry Equal Marks

It is virtually impossible to attempt all 200 questions in the given time limit of 150 minutes. This makes it certain that some questions will have to be left unanswered. The trick is to identify the difficult and tricky questions beforehand and move on from them while attempting the easy ones. Remember that whether you spend 2 minutes on a single very difficult question or 10 seconds on a super-easy one, you will be rewarded 1 mark for both. Always take the better deal.

No Negative Marking Can Be Misleading

Because there is no negative marking in MAH MBA/ MMS CET 2021, some students may be tempted to use guesswork to fill up their answers. However, this strategy can backfire. Instead, it is best to attempt the questions that you are sure of and be as accurate as possible. You can be more liberal in using calculated guesswork and ballparking to reach an answer where required.

Use Tricks to Make Your Life Easier

Because Reasoning is not a formula-based section, there are only a few tricks that candidates can use to reach the answer quickly and more accurately. Make sure you use all of them. However, a word of advice at this point would be to use only the tricks you have practised as some can get confusing. Here are some of the best tricks to use in the Logical & Abstract Reasoning section in MAH MBA/ MMS CET 2021.

  • The Reasoning section is not as much a test of your calculative skills as of your observation, logic and intuitive thinking ability. Hence, reaching an answer is not always about following just the right steps. Instead, skip unnecessary steps where needed and don't be afraid to be unconventional in your thinking.

  • Visualising your problems is another way in which you can make solving Reasoning questions easier. Develop your own methods of writing down the information provided in a question by using codes and symbols.

  • Try to keep your rough work as clean as possible as it will help you visualise better. For example: when solving a circular arrangement puzzle, make sure that you place the seats equally apart and leave enough space to jot down short notes. For questions where you are confused between two possibilities, just create two diagrams and one will eventually be cancelled out.
