Coding Decoding - One of the most important and common chapters in all government job examination is coding and decoding. Since it is a highly scoring chapter, most candidates look for coding-decoding questions to practice. Coding decoding questions asked in banking exams are different from the ones asked in SSC examinations. While the coding-decoding question in banking examinations are creative and different, the questions asked in SSC are fixed in nature. Some coding-decoding tricks, as well as practice questions, are given in this article.

## Types of coding-decoding questions

1. Letter to letter coding

2. Letter to number coding

3. Letter to symbol coding

4. Common word coding

5. Letter to number symbol coding, etc

## How to prepare for coding-decoding questions?

• Read the question carefully and relate each coded letter.

• Once you understand the pattern, apply the same into word asked for the code.

• Try to learn the rank of each letter of the alphabet using EJOTY.

• In a letter to number coding, use their ranks to find the pattern.

• Practice each type of pattern to be comfortable with every type of question.

• Solve all the questions appeared in the previous examinations.
