Tips for Preparing for the Logical Reasoning section

Logical Reasoning is a section that requires a practical application. This section requires a good preparation strategy and a continuous practice of each topic is also necessary. To prepare this section, here are the tips that one should follow while making any plan for the same.

1. Clear the Fundamentals

In the JIPMAT exam, when you are preparing for the logical reasoning section, then it is very important to have a good foundation. Here, foundation means to have a good understanding of the topic. Every candidate here should know what the topic is about and how to solve it.

For instance, if you have chosen the Seating Arrangement topic, then you need to know the left and right placement. A candidate should know what, “third from the left of Ram” actually means. Knowledge of these fundamentals is necessary for any candidate.  

2.     Understand the key strategies

The next step after the fundamentals point is to have an understanding of key strategies. Here, this tip means that, “how to approach a question?”. Yes, some strategies help a student to have a better understanding of a question. This stands true especially in the case of logical reasoning. Some short tricks can help any candidate to solve the questions easily.

For instance, if you are preparing for the Venn Diagram, then you should know how to approach the question. Here, there are many tricks to solve a question easily.


3.     Make sure to apply those strategies

Many students follow both the above steps but lack this tip. When you know how to approach a question, then it becomes important to apply that at the right time. Many students know these strategies but fail to implement them while attempting the question. The knowledge of short tricks will go into vain.

For this tip, you can use books that are a question bank for the logical reasoning section. Practicing this kind of question bank will help any candidate to understand the strategy and how to apply the same while attempting the question. Books are the best way to implement this tip.

4. Have a track of errors

Now, when you have started to prepare the questions from a book, then you must experience that you must answer wrong many times. The next step is to have a track of errors. Keeping the track of errors is important for any candidate. It is so because candidates can commit errors repetitively.

To avoid such situations, it is important to know where you are committing repetitive errors and how you can rectify these errors. Therefore, this will help any candidate to avoid silly mistakes at the main examination. This can be especially true for the logical reasoning section.

5.     Manage stress and time

Managing stress and time is an important tip when you are preparing for this section. Therefore, in case you are facing fewer marks at mocks or repetitive errors, don’t panic. Things can be better with more practice.

The other thing that is important here is to manage time. Managing time is necessary as it is not the only section of the JIPMAT by NTA exam. A candidate needs to devote equal time to every section. Even you have to manage time while attempting the questions of the logical reasoning section.
