11. Preparation for Verbal section (English): 

  • I. Syllabus:

    This part tests the person’s English proficiency skills. Correct use of grammar, punctuation, and vocabulary is really important if you want to score good marks in this area. The syllabus is composed of the following:

    • Tense Related MCQs
    • Paragraph Related MCQs
    • Analogies of pair of words
    • Synonyms and Antonyms
    • Correct use of noun, adverb, preposition, conjunction, and verb
  • II. Guidelines:

    You should follow the following guidelines to prepare for the verbal part:

    • Learn the use of tenses properly. Most of the questions are verb-based, so pay more attention to those.  
    • Learn the proper use of prepositions. Learn the basic prepositions that are mostly used. 
    • A significant number of questions are from synonyms and antonyms. We suggest that you read a good book, like SAT II, as most questions are picked from there.
    • Solve as many past papers as you can, so you can learn the test-solving strategies along with the nature of questions.

12. Preparation for Quantitative section: 


The quantitative part is composed of questions from the maths portion. Most of them are simple arithmetic calculations. The most commonly appeared exam questions are from:

  • Simple Algebra
  • Simple Geometry
  • Percentages
  • Ratio and proportions
  • Basic arithmetic functions like addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication


Follow the given guidelines for the preparation of the quantitative part:

  • Remember that the questions in this part are really easy. They are just phrased in a difficult way, so don’t panic when you look at an extraordinarily long statement. Chances are its solution is really simple.
  • Arithmetic questions are the easiest and they can be solved by students from any educational background, and not just the students who studied math in intermediate. 
  • Learning the short formulas rather than performing calculations manually, otherwise, will take a very large amount of time.
  • For the geometry part, learn the areas of the circle, square, and triangles, as well as the formulae for their volumes. Most of the questions are easily solvable. Don’t be confused if you are asked to solve the area or volume of a random shape. Most of the shapes contain small squares and triangles within them, you just have to calculate those areas individually and later add them to calculate the whole area.
  • Practice the simple ratio and proportion questions. 
  • Learn the Pythagorean theorem, as some questions involve the use of this theorem. For example, calculating the length between two points in a triangle, or the length of the ladder to reach the upper wall, whose length is mentioned along with that of the floor.
  • Most importantly, remember that the questions are really easy, there are just some tricks to confuse some students. Try not to be one of those students.

13. Preparation for Analytical section: 


This part is designed to analyze your situation processing and analytical skills. The question is composed of some information and rules, and you are asked to process the information according to your abilities and come up with an answer. So, this part has no clearly defined syllabus. You should just practice as many questions of this sort as you can. 


  • Since this part analyses your critical thinking ability, try to stay focused and clear-headed during the exam. Don’t let any distractions mess up your thought process. One thing you can do to improve your focus is to practice meditation and other attention-enhancing exercises.
  • You need two things to solve the analytical questions, facts, and rules. What most students do is focus on facts more than they do on rules, which are more important in these scenarios. 
  • Sometimes the rule statements are too long to be remembered when you are solving the question. What you can do is draw up symbols or abbreviations before those statements on the paper to remember those rules.
  • The most commonly asked questions are about making up combinations after certain rules are stated. Practice these types of questions as much as you can.
  • The last and most important one is “practice, practice, and practice”. Buy some books and practice the questions from them. On’s website, there is a huge number of practice questions available. So, subscribe to our course to start tension-free preparation.

14. Preparation for Subjects section: 


For this part, the syllabus varies, based on the combination of subjects, which are further based on the type of NAT test you are going to take. The subjects and topics are what you studied in intermediate, nothing new. 


  • Since questions are from intermediate books, study those books completely and try to learn all the concepts. 
  • While preparing, use a highlighter or pencil to highlight the important points. It will help you remember those points in the exam, as well as decrease your revision time. 
  • Be an inquisitive learner and a keen reader.
  • Pay extra attention to the facts, definitions, terminologies, dates, names of scientists or scholars, theories and steps of a process.
  • Besides the course books, study MCQ-based books and practice as much as you can.
  • Do multiple revisions of your books.

15. Some general test-taking strategies:

  • Multiple-type questions are really short. Divide the total amount of time on the number of questions so you determine the time required to solve one question. 
  • Wear a wristwatch on the test day (not the electronic kind, which isn’t allowed), so you can solve the paper within due time.
  • Before attempting, read the question carefully but speedily.
  • If a question is taking too long to solve, leave it for later. You can solve it in the end.
  • If you are not sure about the answer to a question, pick the odd ones out that can not be the answer. The remaining options will increase your odds of answering the question correctly.  
  • Practice full-length and timed tests at home before taking the real test.
