Wishing a very good luck for the AFCAT -1 starting from tomorrow. But the lady luck alone cannot decide your result. In fact, your result in the AFCAT will depend largely on your strategy, composure and focus on those 2 hours in the exam hall.
I am sure, this time cut off will be less than that of AFCAT (1) 2021 or even AFCAT (2) 2021: For simple reason, that this time the number of vacancies is significantly higher. Therefore, an intelligent exam taking strategy will be very handy to clear the cut off and get the opportunity to see your name in the coveted PDF of the AF-SSB call getters in March.

I always emphasize that for AFCAT, GK and Vocabulary plays a big role. But it may at times pose a risk as there is always a chance that the questions from these two areas are out of your prepared zone. But the same is not the case with Maths, Reasoning and RC/Grammar. There, you will be able to do something even if you get a difficult paper. All you need is to rely on basics and apply your intelligence.  Here, in this article, I will write how you can plan your strategy of one such area which has very high weightage this time.
Note that Test of Reasoning (LR) has maximum number of questions and hence its weightage cannot be over emphasised. It is not possible to learn new things at this time. All you need to do in the next 24-48 hours is to brush up the typical AFCAT level LR questions.
I have kept an eye on every AFCAT/CDS exam since last 8-9 years. In that I have noticed that AFCAT prefers to test your Reasoning skill on a few limited areas unlike other exams such as Banking, Railway or SSC/UPSC.
