Order of attempting sections:

Order in which the questions should be answered is known and it is important factor to consider. We suggest the job seeker to attempt numeric ability and Reasoning last as they are time consuming sections. English is basically good scoring section but some candidates feel it tough so the option is left to the candidate. Basically English should be attempted before above two sections but What we suggest is if you feel English tough don’t try to answer this section first keep it as the last option because doing this will not show impact on other papers.

General Awareness and Computer Knowledge as these two are less time consuming parts candidates should answer these sections first.
