Critical thinking is defined as the ability of an individual to achieve the desired outcome by thinking rationally and critically. It requires a candidate to collect the necessary information needed from relevant and diverse sources, render accurate judgment based on the evidence, identify the assumptions made and draw conclusions to reach a decision. Critical thinking is an essential competency in a world full of ambiguity and change. Good critical thinking skills help in interpreting complex information, which then facilitates decision-making.
