Reading Comprehension mainly focused on speed. As well as the understanding level of an aspirant. Firstly try to understand the comprehensive. Then analyse the passage. Once you analyse it becomes easy to answer MCQ. The passage is not as tough as in past NMAT exams. Generally, passages are easy to moderate difficulty level. Most of the questions from the passage are direct.Verbal strategy by NMAT Topper ft Anisha

Time management is most important in reading passages. I would suggest answering passage questions in the end. Attempt passage afterwards other question from this section.

Aspirants should solve the questions in 2 rounds. In the first round, attempt the less time-consuming questions. Then after those questions which consume time. Likewise  Para jumbles and passage. Should be attempted in the second round.

Grammar mainly focused on basic concepts of tenses, part of speech and phrasal verbs. You should also know to identify errors and sentence formation. For sentence formation questions you could eliminate the choice. With the help of knowledge about grammar or structurally formation. Read the choices carefully.

Vocabulary tries to learn at least 10 words on daily basis before the exam. Vocabulary questions also contain Synonyms, Antonyms, Cloze tests and Idioms questions. A strong vocabulary is very important for a good score in the NMAT verbal section. Some most important vocabulary words.
