Quantitative Aptitude

The exam was difficult. Questions from geometry, time, work and mensuration were difficult to attempt. Every answer took more time due to elaborated calculation because of which the number of questions which could be attempted in the given time decreased.


This section when compared to all seemed to be the easiest but if considered individually, it was moderate. Analogy, Matrices and Coding-decoding questions were the ones due to which Reasoning section won the title of moderate to difficult.

General Awareness

This section seemed like it was the most difficult section when compared to past records. Current affairs, Politics and Economics questions were astonishing, never imagined before. Rest of the topics were easier in its comparison.


Candidates could breathe while going through this section. The questions focused on basic building blocks of the subject which made it easier but little confusing. More than one option seemed right- this is what the feedback was. Overall, the section was moderate on the scale.
