paper analysis

The paper did not contain any surprise. The Quantitative section was based on calculation and did not check the aptitude of the candidate. The Language section was of Moderate difficulty level. The Logical Reasoning section was also not a very difficult section to attempt. The entire exam was similar to the pattern of Bank PO exams. So it did not give much trouble to the candidates who had already attempted much difficult papers like CAT o XAT.

No requests for exceptions will be entertained in this regard. The test centre may not be air conditioned but a comfortable environment will be provided.
