How to handle time pressure in GAT test?

The first answer to question “How to pass GAT test?” is to manage time efficiently. It’s very easy but requires your keen focus to some points that I’m going to write down.

Firstly, your strength will be your best friend during your test progress. Start attempting from that section which is your strongest one. Remember that, you can attempt any question and any section at any time during GAT test. There’s no specific time allocated to attempt a specific section. The selection is yours. Therefore, you must take advantage of this opportunity wisely.

Secondly, always attempt your weakest section at the end. Most of the students face trouble in analytical section, because this section not only requires more time per question, but also requires more brainstorming and logical thinking. So it is wise to attempt this section at the end.

Thirdly, you must develop a habit of reading a question, passage, argument or any statement of the exam in such a way that you would not need to revise that again. In other words, you should understand what you’ve read in your first glance of reading. Sometimes in argument and passage reading, many students revise some sentences that they find difficult to understand. In GAT Preparation plan, you’ll learn best reading strategies in order to avoid rephrasing and revision to save time from each questions.

Finally, while solving the question to find answer, your speed and accuracy matter a lot more. I’ve seen few students wasted their time in solving question especially math section. You must know short-cuts in solving different expressions and skip as many steps as you can as long as you have accurate answer. Trust more on your brain processing speed than your hand writing speed. Your brain is really a miracle, because it can process as fast as you want. But it requires practice that you’ll learn further in GAT Preparation plan.
