Can you advise on what timing strategies do you suggest to students for efficiently practicing in mocks?
Our default time management strategy involves being a little more aggressive in SC. Beyond this, we work with individual students to fine tune their approach once they develop a feel for the question types and we get a better idea about their strengths and weaknesses.

Hi,

While taking mock tests I have usually faced the situation where I am left with around 12-15 minutes and have around 10-12 questions to do in Verbal. Now my last RC which is a big one appears near question no 25. I usually take 10 minutes to solve the RC with accuracy of 75% but since clock is ticking i know i'll make mistakes so i choose to do all 2-3 answers incorrectly and work on next CR/SC questions as many as I can. Is this approach okay or I should change it??

Many Thanks
Samreen

Thank you for this strategy. I adapted it a little to make it simpler. For both quant/verbal, I aimed to finish question 8 with 50 min left and question 15 with 30 min left. I just felt like that minimized any major timing issues and simplified the process for me.

I am having trouble in managing time in difficult quant questions particularly in DS questions. I divide my entire test into slots and check the clock accordingly. But in a few difficult questions, I spend more than 3 minutes unknowingly and sometimes don't even solve them correctly. How can I keep track of time for individual questions?
In Verbal RC is screwing up my time plan. I am not able to slot my test because of the RCs; we dont know when we will get them. Can someone please help me with the same?

Is it true that for the verbal section every question that is left unanswered in the end (due to lack of time) is as good as a wrong answer and hence no penalty?
