2. Difficult Topics: Mixture and Allegation, Sequence and Series and Simplification are bit of difficult level and can take some time to solve. However regular practice and understanding of the concepts would help you to solve these questions on time.

3. Learn percentage table and arithmetic tricks: To tackle the quantitative aptitude the candidate should have strong hold over basic calculations.
