I used the TIME Material for Geometry. The key is to note down all the concepts and keep revising because there is a lot to remember in geometry. Also keep track of all the questions from geometry in the mock tests. Concepts are usually repetitive.

The key to going from 95 to 99%ile in QA is accuracy. That comes from the right choice of questions. You need to make sure you go through all the questions in the section. Skip if you think you'll need more time to solve a question, come back to it later. I used to attempt the section in 3 rounds. First, solve questions you're familiar with, second, solve questions that are lengthy but from your strong topics, and last would be attempting the remaining questions contingent on time remaining.

Hello! Thank you for this article- it helped me out of the confusion I was in! While I'm attempting mocks, I get stuck in a few sums, and I end up attempting only some 10-15 questions, though I do clear all cutoffs. Any tips from your side to improve my overall percentile and analyse mom's efficiently?
