Hey Mahima, make sure to read articles on a variety of topics such as Technology, Science, Fiction, Non-Fiction, Art, Philosophy, etc. When selecting articles to read, choose those topics and concepts which you feel you might be a little weak in or those which might be new to you. Do join our telegram channel https://t.me/crackcatwithiimlgrads to get articles on various topics and please read them regularly.

Thanks for the suggestion. Can you also please tell me how should I select articles for reading? Should I read more abstract articles?

Hi Mahima, reading is very important and will give you an edge over the VARC section, however, it is not sufficient to ace the section. Practice is as important as reading. Keep practicing RCs and non-RC questions regularly. You can start by taking short-timed tests as a warm-up before taking a full-length sectional or mock. You can try our Quiz of the Day at https://www.mockat.com/prepzone/#compete, you'll get 5 Verbal quizzes each week. This will help you enhance your accuracy and speed, and once you gain confidence, you can start taking Mocks and sectionals.

At the same time, please continue with the reading, but you can take it up a notch by finding the Summary or the Author's Point of View (PoV). Use our free Telegram channel for this (https://t.me/crackcatwithiimlgrads). Write your point of view and compare it with the one we are sending and see how you can improve it. Do this as an exercise to improve your comprehension skills. All the best :)
