Strategy for Written Tests:
The overall design of the written tests is generally such that candidates get less than a minute to answer any question. In such a scenario, the expectation is that the candidate will judiciously select questions and will allocate time in such a manner as to maximize his score. Various companies divide their test into different sections which include quantitative section, verbal section & data interpretation and logical reasoning section.
Core companies adopt two methods to conduct the technical test: either include it as a part of the written aptitude test itself or conduct it as a separate test checking the student in the areas of relevance. The technical test can be of two types i.e. in the form of multiple choice questions (MCQs) or write a code for a specific program. Generally, companies do not adopt criterion of sectional cut-offs for exams.
Keeping this in mind, you should remember that the overall score in the exam is the most important one. You are advised to analyze your strengths and weaknesses, and try to identify the questions you are most comfortable with. Spend as much time as possible on questions where you are confident of scoring the maximum amount of marks in the least amount of time. The order of attempting different sections, if choice is available to you in the test, should depend on a strategy designed to boost your morale and score in the test.
