Utilize Detailed Solutions

Script

Taking the quiz and drawing conclusions based on the analytics is great.  But there is still a lot of juice to extract from the quiz that you took.   You should focus on reviewing the detailed solutions of each question with the aim to learn from the solutions.  Each Question in Scholaranium comes with a detailed solution so that you can constantly learn and improve as you practice.

 
Before we go further into the solutions, let’s talk about why you may falter in a question.  Firstly, you may have a conceptual gap. For example, you may falter in an inference question in Reading Comprehension if you are not comfortable with combining the information in two statements to come up with an inference.

 
Secondly, you will falter if you don’t follow a methodical approach while answering. For example, another reason why you may stumble on RC inference question is if you don’t read an RC passage properly.

 
Lastly, you may falter if you make a careless mistake – whether while reading the passage or while doing the process of elimination.

 
The solutions are written so that you can isolate the cause of error to ensure that you don’t repeat the same. By reviewing the solution and comparing your thought process with that in the solution, you would be able to specifically find out why you faltered.

 
For example: In an RC question, since the solution contains detailed passage analysis, you would be able to tell if you were able to extract the necessary juice from the passage or not.  If not, then which sentence or passage portion were you not able to, how should you have read and interpreted that part of the passage.  Likewise,  since each question is explained in detailed, you will be able to determine if you approached the question in the right manner.  And lastly, since each answer choice is explained in detail, you would be able to determine if you missed a specific choice because you forgot to focus on a certain word in the choice or because you misinterpreted the choice.

 
Likewise, each CR solution includes passage analysis, pre-thinking analysis, and answer choice analysis, allowing the student to pin point exactly where he is going wrong.

 
Lastly, each SC solution includes meaning and error analysis of the original sentence and detailed analysis of each answer choice, again equipping you with the information that you would need to determine exactly which step of the process you faltered on.

 
Thus, all in all, by reviewing these detailed solutions you can improve your skills even when you are practicing questions.
