III. English-- Start from 10 November 2019

Increase vocabulary: The only way to increase your vocabulary and not go crazy doing so is by cultivating a genuine habit of reading. It doesn’t have to be Shakespeare’s Othello; anything that interests you (and NO, Tinkle or Archie are definitely not a part of the reading list) and is meaningful would do. A suggestion here would be to read either the Economic Times or the Hindu. Reading papers would also help you with your general awareness and come in handy during interviews. Keep either a dictionary handy or use the site thesaurus.com to look up phrase and difficult words. This is an ongoing process and one is not recommended to spend more than 30-45 minutes reading the paper/anything.

Attempt Mocks:One of the best ways to understand where you’re going wrong is to keep attempting as many mocks and analysing them thoroughly. You can access the mocks here.
