Took it yesterday - 

VARC 66 (28A/23C) - Lately, I haven't been able to attempt all 32-34 questions which I was doing earlier. I am getting very unsure about my RC answers and ending up spending a lot of time on them. Something I need to work on. A strict 35-15-10 division of time.

DILR 33 (12A/11C) - One of those days where for some reason I persist with a set even though I am getting nowhere. Spent almost 30 minutes not answering any questions and paid the price for it.

QA - 29 (21A/11C) - Ugh! The questions seemed easy while I was attempting them, but a combination of lack of focus on specific things in the question, lack of focus while solving them has resulted in this.

OA - 128 - Shook me up, to say the least. Need to get my act in order. It may just be an off day, but what if 24th also turns out to be an off day. Cannot afford that.

@aishu2020 What Karthik said. If you are not able to figure out the main argument of the passage - go through the questions. Sometimes they will refer to a specific sentence or para, read that part of the passage and if you get it, you can answer the question.

Keep in mind that you do not have to answer all RC passages. All you need are 25 correct answers for an amazing score. So even if you miss out on all 5 questions of a passage (which is a rare case), you can still achieve those high numbers. On the contrary, if you do try to get your head around a difficult passage, you might end up spending a lot of time on it, which will lead to lower accuracy in the parts that you could do well given enough time. On top of that, there's no guarantee that you will get the passage even after spending time on it. A lose-lose situation.
