Hope you are now familiar with the what is Campus Placement and what are Campus Placement rounds. If not go check my previous blog about it by clicking above links.

In this blog post I let you guys know about the Aptitude section of written round, what Aptitude section is? how to prepare for it? what are the type of problems?

So let’s get started..



What is Aptitude section of Written round?

Aptitude section is all about the Maths, yes guys those who don’t like maths subject at all you should start liking it. In Aptitude section there are maths problems and you have to find out their solution, the questions are not very difficult generally any well practiced student can solve them, only problem is that you have to solve it in very less time, suppose you are given 30 questions so generally time given to solve them is around 30 minutes, that means 1 question for 1 minute, now that makes it quite difficult.


How to prepare them well?

I am again saying these questions are not very difficult, just prepare them well and you can easily solve them within time period.

Note : You must be very clear with the concept behind the solution, first and most important thing- clear concepts and try to catch clearly what problem’s solution wants.


What kind of questions are asked in Aptitude section?

There are some popular topics of maths-

Some of them are-

  • Number System
  • Average
  • Problem on number
  • Problem on ages
  • Percentages
  • Profit & Loss
  • Ratio & Proportion
  • Time & Work
  • Pipes & Cistern
  • Time & Distance
  • Problem on Trains
  • Boats & Streams
  • Alligation or Mixture
  • Simple interest and compound interest
  • Volume & Surface Area
  • Clocks & Calendar
  • Permutations & Combinations
  • Probability
  • Data Interpretation
  • and many more…

These are some common topics from where mostly questions come and to prepare them well I recommend you guys to solve problems from R.S. Aggarwal (Quantitative Aptitude) Book, as a beginner this book will help you to build concepts and solve problems form easy to difficult level also search online regarding these topics and practice them or if you guys are going to some coaching classes go through their notes also, and don’t forget to master the short tricks on these topics.


Conclusion –

let me quickly summarize this-

  • Aptitude questions are not that much tough just what they want is to prepare them well.
  • Once you are totally familiar with the concept behind them you can solve it easily.
  • Time management is most important.
  • Generally you get 1 question for 1 minute.
