Direction Sense as a topic is an important part of the logical reasoning syllabus. Coded Directions is a sub-part of this topic. Direction Sense is tested in examinations for RBI Grade B, SEBI Grade A, LIC AAO, LIC Assistant, ESIC SSO, ESIC UDC, RBI Assistant, SBI Clerk, SBI PO, IBPS PO, IBPS Clerk, IBPS SO, ECGC PO and many more. Coded directions questions test the candidate's ability to interpret and follow rules, understand relationships, and think logically. They are an important part of aptitude tests in competitive exams, and are used to assess the candidate's problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
In coded directions questions, the instructions or rules are presented in a coded or symbolic form and the candidate must decode the symbols and use their logical reasoning skills to determine the correct answer.
For example, in a coded directions question, a set of symbols may be used to represent certain actions, such as moving forward, turning left, or turning right. The candidate is then presented with a sequence of symbols and must determine the path that would result from following the symbols in order.
