DILR Preparation Tips For MBA Entrance Exam


Vedic Mathematics

DI checks the candidate’s ability to study and analysing the data that is given in the question.

DI entails a lot of calculations and to get correct answers in as less time as possible, becoming well-versed in Vedic Mathematics is a great idea.


Data Interpretation and logical reasoning section for CAT do not have a fixed syllabus that's why aspirants have to worry about how to start and prepare.

Know The Syllabus 


Your aim should be to solve the same question in a faster way.

Work on Your Speed and Accuracy

In addition to working on speed, accuracy is equally important. 

You should be able to answer DILR questions with at least 85 to 90 percent accuracy.


Topics from Which Questions are asked

The DI section is almost completely application-based, requiring knowledge as well as on-the-spot deduction.

There are more data question types e.g. Venn diagrams, routes and networks, 3-d or spider charts, games and tournaments, etc. which appear in various exams, including CAT.


Answer the Easy Questions

In DI, look through all the sets and then begin attempting the set which seems familiar.

Do not gauge the difficulty level of the set based on the data alone, have a look at the questions as well.

It makes sense to answer the easy questions out of the 3-4 questions, and increase the number of sets attempted using this strategy.


Read Carefully

Questions are set-based. It is critical to read the entire question before you choose to attempt or leave it.

Gather all the factual information shared in the question. Also, make sure you understand the options carefully before selecting the correct answer


Do NOT Assume

It is critical not to make any assumptions outside of what is given in the question.

While solving questions, it is essential to follow what is written in that set rather than what may be otherwise correct.


Read, Visualise, and Draw

The questions in LR are usually a scenario or story based on which deductions, inferences, assumptions, and conclusions need to be made.

Hence it is imperative to read the question thoroughly, visualize what is being said, and drawn in the form of a table, flow chart, or vein diagram.


Stop Before It’s Too Late

With the time crunch, it is critical to understand whether a particular set is worth the time you have in hand.

f you see yourself getting stuck at any point, best is to stop and move on.
