Aptitude is an acquired talent or skill with the ability to perform well in any specific area.

Reasoning and Aptitude refer to students’ abilities to think about and use mathematics in meaningful ways. In any subject, simply exposing students to topics is not enough. Nor is it enough for students to know only how to perform procedures. Students today need to develop critical thinking skills to succeed in the subject—and in other areas of life and learning.

Having an experience of more than 5 years as a reasoning and aptitude trainer for various examinations such as the AFCAT, and SSB,  TA enables Manjari mam to help the future leaders of the Armed Forces.
