The New format of the online test shows some of the concerns raised by the aspirants. Some of the features of the revised mock tests are mentioned below:

Sectional Navigation is enabled in Current Format

The revised test format allows the aspirants to switch across the five sections of the test. Thus, candidates can now prioritize which section they want to respond to first.

Option to revisit sections or questions is open

The Candidates will now be able to revisit any section or question of the online test. This feature will allow the students to access the answers marked for review. As the old version of the test did not allow the candidates to access the questions marked for review of attempted sections.
