**1. Geometry/Mensuration**

**Geometry,**you need to remember all the important theorems, Pythagoras triplet, all the formulas of the area of triangle and circle. Above all draw figures correctly to get a quick answer. A thorough understanding of the basics is the key to score well in this section.

**2. Algebra/Trigonometry/Height and Distance**

**Algebra** includes basic formulas of cubes, squares, trigonometric ratios and identities. Questions can be repeated from this section for which you need to practice the previous year papers. **2-3 questions will be asked from Algebra.** Make sure to solve these questions in minimum time. Try to solve a few questions from the options given if you don’t find any way to solve them. Learn all the trigonometric identities useful for the exam. ** Overall 5-6 questions can be asked from** Algebra, Trigonometry & Height and Distance.

**3. Ratio/Percentage/profit, Loss and Discount**

Basic Concepts of Percentage and ratio are the foundation of the chapters like profit, loss, and Discount. For Quick solving, you must remember all fractional values up to 30 in terms of percentage. Profit, loss, and discount revolve around 4 terms and that is C.P, S.P, M.P, and Discount. Understand the concept of CP, SP, MP, and discount given on MP and the relation between them. Practice from the books as much as you can. It will help you to solve the questions quickly and accurately.

**4. Time speed and distance/ Train/ Boats and Stream**

Inverse relation and direct relation between time, speed, and distance can help you a lot. The concept of relative velocity will help you in solving problems of Trains, Boats, and Stream. All these topics are based on the same concept. Gun and Bullet problem, Train accident problem, Effect of increasing/decreasing speed on time, these problems are often asked in exams.** Overall 3-4 questions can be asked from these topics.**

**5. Time and Work/pipes and Cistern**

Time and work questions can be solved with the help of the LCM method which reduces a lot of time while solving the questions. The concept of alternate work, efficiency, and work and wages are important points to cover. Make sure to use your own tricks for solving these questions.
