1. See all these 5 sections won't require equal time so try to attempt those sections in which you find yourself strong or which takes less time.

3. We suggest you to go first for sections which take less time so that you have ample amount of time for time consuming sessions i.e Numerical Ability & Reasoning
4. All the questions except English section will be available in bilingual i.e. English & Hindi so don't think that hindi medium candidates or candidates who studied in Hindi can't perform.
