Strategy & Tips

The overall feel of the paper was moderate, thus for the students who knew how to manage the time available to the best i.e. not wasting much time in lengthy and difficult questions, could easily manage an overall good attempt. AR and DI were mostly selective in this paper. As far as Quant is concerned most of the questions were from Number system, Geometry, Work & Time and P&C.
