Hello friends,

i need some advice pertaining to the verbal section. In case of a SOS situation, where you are not left with any time and still a few verbal questions remain, what is the best strategy to do , should you guess randomly and move on to complete the test in order to save yourself from any penalty of not completing the test, just like we are supposed to do in the quant section, or should we not guess at all and just complete the maximum questions we can, but never guess randomly even if we run out of time , resulting in a few questions being unanswered ???

pls help me with this query .

Regards,
Kunal

Hi. Your post is not detailed enough. To be able to answer this question, we would need to know which sections in verbal you feel comfortable with and which ones you dread, what has been your recent performance in a CAT, and whether you could finish CATs consistently.

Now, guessing and moving on/try harder is a binary strategy and not worth any practicing. I would suggest pick up more subtle things such as WHY you have to guess. Generally not being able to answer a question comes from being under prepared for that particular type of question. SO rather than timing strategy, I would try to fix my concept gap.

ONLY after my basics are in place, and my concepts are ready, I would work on timing.

Let me know if you have any other detail that you would like to share and I may be able to provide a more substantial strategy.

Best
