Strategy proposed by PlacementSeason

The first line – do not dwell long on any question. Time is vital in this placement test. It does not matter how many answers you get right, as there are no negative marks. Your score is calculated on the number of right answers you give within the time you take to complete the exam. Besides these steps, it will be really useful if you practice well for the placement tests.

Do that and you are prepared for the exam. We welcome you to share your feedback.
