Analytical & Logical reasoning section was also easy this time. This section was dominated by verbal reasoning, series and arrangement-based questions. Quant section was moderate to tough as there were a few questions based on probability and combination & permutation. However, a few questions in mathematics did not have correct options or the grammar in their statements was wrong.  Overall time management and selection of questions will play a major role in clearing cut-off.

Sectional Analysis
SECTION I: General English
Evaluation: The pattern of section was similar to that of last year’s.  This year also there was no conventional RC passages and even no sentence rearrangement-based questions.   However passage was in the form of a small poem consisting of 2-3 lines and one question based on it. The level of this section was easy. The section was dominated by, vocabulary& sentence completion-based questions. A couple of grammar-based questions purely checked the fundamentals of grammar such as which of the following sentences is British English or American English. The two vocabulary-based questions were also easy. There were questions based on idiom/idiomatic usage, spellings and parts of speech. The overall feel of the section was easy
Good Attempt: 12-14questions
SECTION II: Analytical & Logical Reasoning
Evaluation: The difficulty level of this section was easy. The section included questions on, coding/decoding, blood relations, calendar, clock, logical order and missing number/letters. This section was dominated by verbal reasoning and series. There were 2 questions each on clock& on calendarthat required basic understanding of the concept. Overall feel of the section was easy to moderate.
Good Attempt: 19-21 questions.
SECTION III: Quantitative Aptitude, Data Interpretation & DS
Evaluation:  This was the toughest section.  The questions were Verbose and a bit tricky. This section was dominated by Algebra, Geometry Arithmetic and modern mathematics. There were 2-3 questions on numbers also. Overall, the feel of the section was moderate to tough and the selection of questions was important to get hold on the paper.
