I average 1:32 minutes on quant questions, and I do not like the fact that I leave so much time unused.
This hold true for all tipe of questions: PS, DS, 500-600 or 700-800 alike.
I usually end the quant section in 60 to 68 minutes and that is plain wrong and shows poor time management.
My ratio in the quant section is 84% correct at the moment and too many times I let slip things and make stupid mistakes because I go too fast.

Knowing all this, I always reach a point, while answering, where I am pretty sure I got the correct one (or I have no idea at all and decide to move on).

Is there a way for me to learn how to pace myself better? Like a checklist procedure I should follow for every question in order to not miss anything?

Thank you in advance to anyone who might help.
