While the amount of time required depends on how well you plan and your ability to retain information, some guidelines can help you complete the task in much less time than you expected.
  • Inventive Scheduling
Once you've agreed to take the competitive test, you'll need to start planning your schedule. Any business venture needs meticulous planning to run smoothly and without hiccups. Make an educated guess as to how much time you have to prepare.
You would have a clear idea of the time in your hand because the tests are held at about the same time every year.
Take note of the syllabus you intend to cover before preparing your training strategy. Determine how much you know about what segment and how comfortable you are with it. Some people excel at logic but struggle with general knowledge, and vice versa. This evaluation aids in determining how much time you can devote to each segment.
  • Lists are extremely beneficial.
Lists have a lot of influence, so don't undervalue them. From making a list of research materials and books to making a list of subjects to study, lists will help you see things.
  • Timetable
Make a regular schedule for your studies. Be sure to schedule some time for recreation or a break in between the planning periods.
Changing up the subjects will keep it from being monotonous and putting you to sleep.
Spend at least 4 hours a day on it. Also, set aside half an hour each day to brush up on your general knowledge.
  • Individual Sections Have Their Own Time
The section on quantitative aptitude requires the most focus since it requires knowledge of definitions, formulas, corollaries, and tables. To answer the questions in this section easily and accurately, you must have a clear understanding of cube root and square root calculations. This segment can be aced with enough practice. As a result, devote more time to this portion.
If you have a decent vocabulary, the English portion is simple to manage. This not only aids in answering questions but also allows you to do better in interviews and group discussions.
The reasoning section assesses your ability to think analytically. Questions about distance, direction, seating arrangement, age, and the Venn diagram are frequently asked. Make sure you set aside time each day to practice such questions and learn how to solve them quickly. This will boost your pace and make this segment much easier to score.
  • Take Notes
Keep a notebook with you for the duration of your training. Make a list of everything you want to remember about the subject you've chosen. This will come in handy when it comes time to revise for the test.
Make a date in your diary, phone, or calendar for finishing your training and mastering the new concepts. If you've mastered the concepts, you can use the mock tests and practice tests to assess your level of training and refine it as required. You'll be more reliable and fast on the test, and your scores will improve as a result.
