Tips for Solving Aptitude Questions for Placement and Competitive Exams:

Objective of this article:“Learn the secrets behind solving aptitude easily, explained how from my experience”.

Many people find it hard to solve aptitude and get disappointed when they score less.  So here is a guidance for everyone who find aptitude tough. This article is written based upon my experience.

Here are some reasons why some of us feel aptitude hard:

  1. Fear of mathematics.
  2. Weak in basics of maths.
  3. Lack of practice.

 Here are some tips which will help you score good marks in your aptitude exam:

  • Learn the basics of math. If you have good math basics of the topics covered till your 12th then consider you are all set to start practicing for your aptitude exam.
  • Always remember the basic formula. Example:  Formulae like (a+b)2=a2+b2+2ab, etc. Such formulae are important so memorize them.
  • Along with the formula also learn the logical concept behind it, because one question may be asked in different ways so knowing the concept is important.
  • Be perfect with tables from 1 to 20. If you don’t know then start practicing now. It is important because they help you do the multiplication part very fast. In most of the problems the multiplication part includes only tables from 1 to 20.
  • Solve as many as papers you can. The more you practice the faster you can solve the problems. You can get papers from website and books.
  • If you’re weak in some topic don’t try to escape hang to it and keep practicing till you get perfect that will make you at it.
  • Do the sums with concentration. Read the question carefully and clearly, there will be a lot of unwanted information in the question, ignore such things. They are just given to confuse you.
  • Do the sums with confidence and at the same time don’t over look things with your over confidence.
  • Many of the questions will be very easy. So, when you get answer easily don’t think that “this may be the answer”.
  • Avoid using paper and pen for small calculations. Using pen and paper for every small question may consume your time.
  • During examination do all the sums which you are good at, later solve the sums which are tough and take time.
  • Don’t study anything new just before your examination. Go to the hall peacefully.
  • If there is negative marking, then  answer only those questions for which you know the answer for sure.

If you follow all these guide lines, I’m sure you’ll score good marks in your test. All the best!
