    Things to keep in mind while attempting the Nabard written exam

    There is no set pattern to attempt the various sections of the exam.
    Second thing to keep in mind is, “NEVER OVER EXPECT”. Candidates make the greatest blunder when they try to attempt each and every question (remember, there is one fourth negative marking and every mark counts).
    Don’t get stuck in a question as it will eat up all your time. Instead, try to solve those questions first which you can solve in one go as it will maximize your score. Once you are finished with all these questions, provided you have time left you can come back to the unsolved questions.
    Your primary aim should be to clear the cutoff first. Satisfying your ego in solving one mathematical problem in a time span when you can solve 10 more questions is utter foolishness. Try to gather marks first, so that you could clear both the cut offs and then make an effort to score more.
    One golden trick for English Section- Don’t run after Sentence rearrangement questions as they are very time consuming and even no guarantee that you will get it right.
    Last but not the least, have faith in yourself. Don’t pay attention to rumors and never let anybody to discourage you during the course of preparation. Always remember, its you who is going to attempt the exam and its only you who can create the magic by hard work+smart work. So, anybody else’s opinion should not create an impact on your aim to be a top notch banking officer.
     Time Management Tips Are As Follows

        Practice with Stopwatch on your side: For any candidate it is a must to keep a stopwatch by their side while preparing. Apart from the tenacity of the questions, what matters is that of the allotted time for solving those questions. One needs to practice so well in the paper so that he/she can answer most number of questions that too keeping the accuracy factor in mind. This also helps you to improve your time and boosts your confidence just before the examination.

        Skip Questions that are troubling much: There are 200 questions in each of the paper, and if at any point it is felt by the candidate that a certain question is troubling them much, they should immediately move away from that particular question and try and solve other known ones. Rather than sticking to any particular question, it is advisable to move along.
        Go through Practice sets and Mock Question Papers: Mock question papers and practice sets can help the candidates to prepare for the examination effectively. By solving these sets you could have an idea of how many questions you are solving on the given time and try to improve that by applying and innovating newer techniques for solving problems through constant practice.
        Do not go for everything: You certainly didn’t want to get in trap of ‘getting everything’ under your belt. Thus, you should set a target for yourself while you are preparing for any paper and decide how many questions you are going to attempt with accuracy to be on top of anything. You should keep an eye on quality of your answers rather than the quantity as doing this you could also avoid negative markings which can take down your chances of getting through.
