  3. The IQ exam, often known as the aptitude test, has 35 questions, as I said previously. You have only 15 minutes to respond to all of these questions. This implies that you have just two minutes to respond to each question. Never assume that the proctors will extend the time restriction because they are tight about it. The key is to start with the simple questions and return to the more challenging ones if there is still time. You may make the most of your time and improve your chances of passing the exam in this manner.
