Importance and Scope

The importance of taking the right decision at the right moment and the right place cannot be underestimated especially for those in Administration and Management roles. This requires the mind to be alert to appreciate the situation, analyse data available, establish logical relationships and arrive at correct conclusions enabling him to take the right decisions. That is why the recruitment of officers through UPSC / PSC examinations or by Banks, PSUs and Major Private Companies invariably incorporate this skill set to their requirement basket. This also explains why most of the institutions selecting a student for a future course like MBA, LLB etc incorporate Mental Ability Tests as an important component of the selection process as well.
