Quantitative Aptitude and Data interpretation have the highest number of questions in the test and thus students should try and attempt questions from this section to maximize their score. It definitely depends on the personal choice and level of comfort of the test-taker to decide how much time to dedicate to solve the questions. For QA, the questions are broadly divided into Arithmetic and Geometry. Arithmetic is comparatively easier to solve so candidates should attempt that first. The Resources include solving Past year XAT papers, appearing for Mocks, taking sectional tests. The key to scoring well is analyzing the test after appearing for it which will help the candidate know their shortcomings.

For the Data Interpretation sections, candidates can go through the problems of Bar Graph, Line Chart, Pie Chart, Venn diagrams, and Situation-Based Cases. Practice is the key to this section. As there is no on-screen calculators offered students should try and learn some calculations shortcut that would help them speed up. A general suggestion for the candidates is to try and solve the DI section first as though it is calculation-intensive, it is comparatively easier and helps boost the score and clear the sectional cut-off
