Speed is a critical factor in Reading Comprehension (RC)
 
In the Common Admission Test (CAT), the Reading Comprehension, also known as the RC, accounts for close to 50 percent of the verbal section. Questions for the reading comprehension come in groups of four to eight questions and are based on passages of between 250 and 750 words each. 

TOP 10 RCs

 
To ace the CAT 2016 , it is important to read quickly and understand the gist of the passages. Many students are unable to ace the verbal section because they run out of time. So, to ensure that you answer all the questions in the Reading Comprehension section, it is important to increase your reading speed.
 
On an average, you should be able to read at the speed of 200 to 300 words per minute. You can increase your reading speed by scanning the material first. Break the reading material into blocks based on the ideas that are being described in each block. 
 
In addition, you should learn to focus on important words and phrases. Many students waste time by reading articles, conjunctions and prepositions. By eliminating these from the reading radar, you will be able to read quickly, keeping important points in mind. While reading the passages, keep a note of the main points so that you can answer questions easily.
 
Apart from speed, it is important to understand what the passage is about. There are four types of passages that you can find in CAT – social sciences passages, science passages, business passages and entertainment passages.

 
If you are familiar with the subject matter, you should aim to read the passages faster so that you have more time for passages you are unfamiliar with. 
 
You can improve your reading speed by attempting comprehension quizzes online and timing yourself. Increasing your reading speed takes time and effort. So, make sure that you start preparing for CAT well in advance.
