How I scored 100 percentile in Quantitative Ability in AMCAT
Quantitative Ability in AMCAT
Quantitative ability of AMCAT consist of following question(s)/syllabus Basic Numbers Decimals and fractions Basic algebra Factorisation, divisibility, HCF, LCM Odd, even, prime, rational numbers Word Problems Application of algebra to real world Direct and inverse proportion Common Applications Speedtimedistance Profit and loss Percentage Age relations Mixtures Miscellaneous Premutation and combination, Basic Probability Factorial Notation Principles of counting P&C with repetition, restriction and counting Probability, Addition and multiplication law Events : Dependent, Independent, Exclusive events Power and Logarithms Factorial and negative powers Graphical, intuitive understanding Logarithm/antilog definatio and properties Word problems Mixed with Algebra The Question pattern for Quants is as follows (expected) Number of Questions : 25 Total Time allotted : 35 minutes Minimum Questions to be attempted : 15 For other sections : Visit this link So seeing the above pattern almost around 1.2 minutes are needed max for attempting each question (That's not a lot of time considering minimum amount of questions to be answered as per the rules [else you will get 1], means that you can give max to max around 2.5 minutes per question [in worst case scenario] but do remember that once you have submitted the answer you cannot revert back to the question because AMCAT is an adaptive test, means that your next question will depend on your previous answer. So main question strike, how to prepare for Quants in AMCAT? How to score a high percentile in Quants in AMCAT? Well time management is the key, you must note that each section is around 900 marks, but its unclear that how much marks each question weigh. Checking out marks/question(s) it makes around 36 marks per question [but the score calculation may depend on many factors like time : accuracy, and much more. AMCAT Sample Questions [Quant][500+ Questions] Recommended Book to refer : Quantitative Aptitude For Competitive Examinations (English) The Quantitative Ability assesses the ability of the candidate in the following two aspects: A. Basic understanding of numbers and applications This section tests whether the candidate has understanding of basic number system, i.e., fractions, decimals, negative, positive, odd, even numbers, rational numbers, etc. The candidate should know how to do basic operations on these numbers, understand concepts of factors/divisibility and have good practice on algebra. Apart from operations on numbers, the candidate should know how to convert a realworld problem into equations, which could be solved to find an unknown quantity. The candidate is tested on Word Problems representing various scenarios to assess the same. B. Analytical/Engineering Maths These are aspects of mathematics needed for Engineering disciplines and analysis of data. This includes permutationcombination, probability and understanding of logarithms. Following is a 7 day schedule which need to be followed for getting a high percentile in AMCAT. Day 1 : Complete chapter(s) 1, 2, 3, 4. The chapter(s) are following Chapter 1 : Numbers Chapter 2 : HCF and LCM of Numbers Chapter 3 : Decimal Fractions Chapter 4 : Simplification These are one of the difficult chapters of quants section of amcat, these chapters consist of some tricky questions, it is expected that you might recieve this 2nd or 3rd question (assuming that your first 2 are correct) or you might recive an easy question from this as 1st question, maximum time is needed to solve these questions, it might take upto 23 minutes as it involves some multiplication (which is time consuming), so full dedication is needed for these 4 chapters, else you might lose a lot of time. Day 23 : Complete chapter(s) 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20. The chapter(s) are following Chapter 15 : Time & work Chapter 16 : Pipes & cistern Chapter 17 : Time & distance Chapter 18 : Problem on trains Chapter 19 : Boats and streams Chapter 20 : Alligation of mixtures Altough these chapters are small but these are extremly important regarding competetive and examination point of view, there is almost surity that you might recieve these questions after attempting 34 are correct. Take these type of questions seriously, most probably you will see these type of questions in every oncampus and offcampus aptitude tests. Practice this thoroughly all solved and unsolved questions. Day 4 : Complete chapter(s) 6,7,8,10,11 The chapter(s) are following Chapter 6 : Average Chapter 7 : Problem on numbers Chapter 8 : Problem on ages Chapter 10 : Percentage Chapter 11 : Profit & loss Another important topic is profit and loss, complete these within 1 day [its not that difficult] but make sure that you dont skip any of these, these are important chapters again from interview and exam point of view, complete all with solved and unsolved. Day 5 : Revise previous 15 chapters There are plenty of study material along with sample exam papers available, here are the following links that might help AMCAT & Elitmus AMCAT & Elitmus sample aptitude questions AMCAT Sample Questions [Quant][500+ Questions] Day 6 : Complete chapters 21,22,23 The chapter(s) are following Chapter 21 : Simple Interest Chapter 22 : Compound Interest Chapter 23 : Logarithms Logarithms is one of the important chapter(s) which most probably you will get the first question, if you had studied for competetive exams in class XII, this chapter might be a cakewalk, you might only need around 3040 minutes to complete the whole chapter. Rest for simple and compound interest you might recieve 1 question from either of the chapters. So prepare well. Day 7 : Complete chapters 30,31 The chapter(s) are following Chapter 30 : Permutation and combination Chapter 31 : Probability Again these two chapters are most important chapters, you might sureshot recieve 1 question from these 2 chapters, a through revision must be done solving both solved and unsolved questions. If you follow the above pattern, there are high chances that you might land 90+ percentile or even a 100%ile. If you have any doubt(s) then you can leave a comment below. All the best.
