Overall Exam Analysis

According to our exam analysis, the overall exam was not very difficult for the students. The English section came with a surprise again with phrase replacement. Students were quite prepared as the yesterday's exam had the similar kind of questions.

The reasoning section again was inclined towards puzzles and seating arrangements like yesterday. The questions were based on circular and paragraphs. The low-weightage of other sections disappoint students a bit as there were no machine input/output questions and new pattern syllogism questions as well. But yesterday's slot kept students prepared with this kind of situation and they were not at all surprised to see the paper. Overall this section had moderate level of questions and ideal attempt for this section is 20-24
