In the beginning of preparation how should I proceed with time management and efficient answering? It takes too much time to solve verbal questions in beginning.. How much time should I allot to each qus in RC, CR, SC in beginning ?

Hi again, Queen199212,

My advice, and the short answer to your question is that you should not worry too much about time management at all in the beginning. Instead, focus on applying the proper mindset and strategies to your practice. As you progress, your pacing will naturally improve. Then, as you begin to refine your approach, you can begin to consider more direct time management strategies. But again, don't overthink it at this point. In the wise words of an increasingly insane Kanye West, you need to learn to "crawl before you ball." Put another way, walk before you run

Lastly, when it comes to overall time-management strategies, a major misconception is that you will have an average of 2 minute per question. While that is technically true, don't think that you need to allocate exactly two minutes to every question. Instead, there will be times when you need to realize that you're stumped early enough in the question to make an educated guess and move on, in turn, saving those extra 45-60 seconds for a later question in which that time is more valuable. Does that make sense?
