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.
