Strategy. Number one plan. Your time is the biggest limitation in MCQ exams.

So to tackle the continuous panic of losing time, here's, a very important strategy. If you have one hour for your MCQ exams for. Example, divide that into three parts, the first 15 minutes for skimming the paper read all the questions. And as you go along, you will find some small very easy to solve direct questions solve them instantly. And this will give you an initial boost of confidence. The next 30 minutes go through the rest of the questions. If something is very hard don't spend more than one minute on it in her book, a mind for numbers, Barbara Oakley recommends, the heart start jump to easy technique where she says that as.

Soon as you hit a mental roadblock shift gears and get to work on easier questions. The brain is a powerful organ. It keeps working in the background also you might get some clues in some other questions.

And we have 10 super tricks for that coming up later on in this video, hey, before I give you strategy number two, if you want to shout out in my next. Video write me a catchy comment with the hashtag chat, chatters strategy.

Number two don't rush read the question twice, pay attention to words like not always which completely change. The question also double-check the exact requirements of the question. Underline, these words and other important keywords. If you think the first option is correct, don't rush to circle.

The OMR sheet, make sure you read all the options carefully before choosing the answer. You never know you might find and all of the above. Somewhere strategy, number three use clues from the question.

This strategy has three subparts haha, just like MCQs. First in math questions, if the calculation seems too long-winded, one easy method is to put the options back into the question and check if the equation balances two in English or social studies based questions use grammar as a tool to help. You example, this is your question option. A is missing the verb and option. D has no connection to the people of Iceland. These options can be.

Eliminated even though both may be true, and you're finally left with option b and c, three, check units and dimensions. These will give you vital clues. So if the calculation is for an area of an object, for example, rule out the options that are not in square units. Even before you begin to solve the question strategy. Number four is called context based memory. Sometimes we ponder over MCQ questions with foggy answers in our mind we're, trying our level best to recall it, but you're just stuck and to our. Rescue psychology has a trick called context-based memory.

It says that to recall some missing information, try to remember where you studied that piece of information was it in a book or online was it from a tuition teacher, or from a friend, even trying to remember which corner of the page that graph was that may trigger your mind to connect the dots and find the missing information. It works. Even if you forgot where you kept your keys, and with that key information, let's move on to our next. Strategy strategy, number five is practice, practice. There is no strategy to crack MCQs that beats this one practice every day check your answers, go back to the concepts and understand the types of questions being asked. And if you want a perfect timetable, perhaps to study for any exam, then I will drop a link for you under this video. And if you're enjoying this, then don't, forget to press that little thumbs up now you're left with the tough questions.

And if there is no negative marking or. Maybe the negative marking is very low, then perhaps you can go ahead and make some smart guesses. So here are my 10 tricks for intelligent guessing, tip number. One eliminate the options, the general formula for solving MCQ is to increase the probability of the right answer by removing all the possible wrong answers. So start by removing the options, which are clearly wrong. Sometimes you might get lucky and be left with only one option tip number two long, tail, keywords in his book, rock break, scissors.

A practical guide to outguessing and outwitting, almost everybody. The author William pound stone has revealed some marvelous findings through his research with huge sets of MCQ data. His book reveals that the option with the longest statement has the highest probability of being right because the test makers have to make sure that the right answer is indisputably right tip. Number three, avoid the footprint pound.

Stone, also discovered that two successive questions, rarely have the same correct option. For example, if you're solving question number, 30 and find yourself clueless, then look at the answer to question number 29 and question, number, 31 and don't, select the same letters. They have the least probability of being correct tip. Number four. Golden options. Research has shown that if you don't know, the answer at all for any particular MCQ question. And one of the options has either all of the above, or none of the above.

You can bet on these options. They have a disproportionately high probability. Of being correct one reminder, however, is to make sure that either there is no negative marking in your paper or the negative marking is very low before you try guessing, too many answers tip number five, true versus false in the tug of war between true and false in a true false question, pound, stone revealed that true is more likely to be the correct answer than false. So if you're guessing wildly, then choose true tip.

Number six, avoid north-south options, remove extreme values or completely unrelated. Values, for example, you have four options like banyan tree, acacia tree, koala bear and bamboo tree. Clearly koala bear would be the wrong answer. Similarly, with numbers, remove extreme numbers when in doubt, the middle order options are much safer. For example, if your options are 100 150 200 and 300, then perhaps 300 may not be the right answer tip number seven. If two options are similar sounding, or if they have the same keyword appearing in both these options, chances are that one of them could be the. Right option also if two options are completely opposite, chances are the right answer may be one of them tip.

Number eight, grammatically incorrect. Options are most likely to be wrong tip number nine, pound, stone found that when a question has three options, a b c, then there may not be any clear bias. But when there were four options, perhaps a b, c and d, then b had the highest probability of being right at 28 percent closely followed by c at 25 percent. And finally, tip number 10 pound stone found that. When a question has five options, the fifth option had the highest probability of being right. But one caution here, avoid guessing, more than five to ten percent of the questions, try to practice more learn more trust, your own instinct.

And remember that hard work is the shortest path to success. And now coming to our question, which we asked you in the beginning. And the right answer was option, a saint Edward school, English and kudos to all of you who guessed it right? Don't, forget to leave a comment. For me with the chat chatters and happy learning.
