Don't think about the time when you're doing the time material. Har RC ko araam se padho and understand what exactly does it mean. And mind mein assumptions mat banao about what the author "might" say in the next paragraph. Keep your mind like a clean slate and just absorb what the author is trying to say. Speed aur accuracy apne aa p banegi practice se

SPOT strategy as they call it, could be handy for you. Make short notes after each paragraph. A one liner giving the gist of the paragraph. It definitely helps improve accuracy because you know what part of the passage the question corresponds to. It could be time taking and sometimes frustrating but better be frustrated than give up. ATB 😃

I Take about 9-10 minutes to solve one LR set. Is that too slow?

How long do you guys take?

Waiting for the day...

however if you still think that its too long toh imo VA ke questions mein time bachao and not in LR. Coz minor si inaccuracy isme poora answer galat kar sakkti hai
