DMRC Recruitment Preparation: General Awareness

GA (General Awareness) is a very scoring section and it is less time consuming. Most of the questions in DMRC are asked on Current Affairs. GA is vast topic and it cannot be prepared in a day preparation. Yes, this section is the worst, meanest and biggest but nothing can be done.

Focus on the last 5 months current affairs. Well, there is no much time but you can have a good revision of important topics. Read monthly magazines. Cover as much topics as you can. You can practice questions on apps while traveling, read the magazines before going to bed and revise it in early morning

DMRC Recruitment Preparation: Numerical Aptitude

Apply short tricks, use Vedic mathematical tips, learn tables, cubes & squares to solve questions faster. If you stuck at any question, leave it and move forward. Use timer while practicing questions. If you are not good with numbers then there are certain topics to cover and that can fetch you to achieve the minimum qualifying marks set by DMRC.

Don’t start something you can’t finish. We know how much you crave for those extra marks, but don’t attempt that question unless you are sure about your answer. If you do attempt such questions, Mark them for review and come back after finishing up the section to recheck your answer.

Attempting questions you know not only ensures you marks but also gives you sufficient time to solve the ones you don’t. After you have solved everything you know in the Numerical Aptitude Section of DMRC Recruitment Exam, you have secured your deserved share of marks in the Section. After that comes the fight with unknowns and the ones you are confused about. And for that my friend, you need to focus.

DMRC Recruitment Preparation: Logical Aptitude & Reasoning

Candidates have to read the questions and apply their own logic for answering these questions. There is no particular formulae for most of the questions. Here, we are providing some amazing tips to score good marks in logical reasoning section of DMRC Recruitment is as follow:

To solve an LR Problem, write down all of the information given in the question. These questions usually contain several statements which serve as clues to solving the problem. Candidate needs to attempt the problem in a methodical manner and solved it step by step. If they will try to look at all information at once then they got confused.

Give some seconds over a question and read it carefully. A proper image of why each choice is correct or incorrect should go to into mind. If candidates can follow this method in sample reasoning questions, they will do well on the actual assessment. Candidate should be sure to read all the responses before eliminating. They should be very wise in their decision of leaving the question. As they can always come back later on the question if they have the time.

Candidate need to pay special attention to words like ALL, SOME, NONE, OTHER THAN, UNLESS or ONLY. These words can play a critical role for false assumption. Candidate should read the question until they understand that what they are required to answer from each question. Keep in mind that you can stop working on a tough question temporarily and come back to it later. It could be done only if the section has not been changed.
