AST Entry Test: Tips for Analytical & IQ

The Analytical & IQ portion of the FAST entry test constitutes a significant part of the test, as it carries 20% weightage, which is second only to adv. mathematics (50%). However, students are not as familiarized with this subject as they are with others, such as English or Science subjects. In order to familiarize themselves with such questions and learn some useful tips on how to improve their chances of success in this portion of the FAST entry test, students may refer to the following:

1. Familiarize yourself with the Terminology

Similar to other subjects, questions in the Analytical & IQ portion of the FAST entry test have their own set of terminologies which students must familiarize themselves with in order to get a better grasp on the subject. Terms such analogy, odd one out, inference etc. are concepts which students must learn in order to improve their command over these questions. These concepts are extensively covered in this course as well as other courses where intelligence/analytical questions appear.

As students go through our course and the extensive questions offered therein, they’ll become familiarized with such concepts. This will not only help them to differentiate between questions belonging to one topic or another, but it will also help them navigate better through the course as a whole.

2. Inculcate some essential values

Students are advised to inculcate some basic analytical values before tackling the Analytical & IQ portion of the FAST entry test. Values such as interpreting i.e. seeking patterns, or inferring i.e. forming conclusions based on available evidence or reasoning, or, most importantly, critical thinking i.e. the ability to question things and not take them at face value, are all absolutely essential. Inculcating these and similar values in your thinking habits is vital to achieving success in this subject.

3. Keep your mind sharp

The questions in the Analytical & IQ portion of the FAST entry test, at their core, are a test of the mind. In order to ace this section, your mind has to be at is sharpest. In order to keep the mind sharp, try to play games, such as crossword puzzles or chess, which test the mental faculties of individuals. In addition, a healthy mind and healthy body go hand in hand. Therefore, exercise regularly and be mindful of your sleeping patterns in order to keep your mind in peak condition.

4. Improve your attention span

Although this is related to the previous point, but its importance merits that it be discussed separately. All questions in the Analytical & IQ portion of the FAST entry test require you to be able to maintain your focus and attention for long periods of time. This is necessary to follow the arguments presented in questions, or to make inferences and deductions/inductions etc. In order to improve your attention span, you must practice as much as you can. The wide variety of questions offered in this course will enable the candidate to constantly be on their toes and improve their focus and attention

With these tips in mind, and by enrolling at our course, you’ll be able to ace the Analytical & IQ portion as well as the FAST entry test as a whole. So, what are you waiting for? Enroll now!
