Here are a few tips on how to answer questions relating to case studies;
1)Read the case-study carefully: Case-studies will run up to many lines. So, do not think twice about spending time on reading the question. Read it the second time if you haven’t understood clearly.
2)Read the questions relating to the case: After a first time reading of the case study, reading the questions pertaining to it, will help you know what to look out for in the case. Underline these instances in the case study for later reference.
3)Make notes of key points: While reading through your case study, make notes of key points (in bullet format). This will help you to assess and analyse the facts for arriving at the right solution.
4)Look for cues: Sometimes, the answer may be hidden in the question itself. Certain words, or conjunctions in the sentence will give away the answer, if you read between them. Remember to look for these cues.
5)Background preparation: attempting case studies questions will be easier if you have enough exposure to solving these question types earlier. Browse through student portals or your university’s online interface to get better insights about case studies, and the mode to solve them.
