Sections –

Analytical and Numerical Ability

One can expect a small number of very basic visual reasoning and inferential questions in this section. Also there may be a set or two consisting of basic DI questions which you need to answer on the basis of a graph or a pie chart. The remaining questions are quantitative ability questions not very different to those in the CAT. The subjects covered in the last year's exam include time and work, quadrilaterals, numbers, averages, profit and loss, mathematical series, etc. You should be able to solve this section fairly quickly as all you need is a grasp on the fundamentals. This section had 15 questions last year.

Language Ability

This section requires you to solve RC passages with most questions being direct. Besides RC, logical arrangement of paragraphs, vocabulary based fill-in-the-blanks, analogies, sentence correction, essence/summary of a paragraph are the kind of questions that have traditionally appeared in this section and one can expect them this year too. The general level of questions is easy. This section had 20 questions last year.
