DU JAT 2020 was held yesterday on September 7. Based on the initial analysis DU JAT was moderate to tough in terms of difficulty level. Students also reported that there were a few changes in the exam pattern. 

DU JAT 2020 was conducted as a computer-based test in 20 cities by NTA on behalf of the University of Delhi. DU JAT is an entrance test conducted for admissions to Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS), Bachelor of Business Administration (Financial Investment Analysis) and BA (Hons) in Business Economics programs offered by 16 colleges affiliated to DU. 

Students had to face technical glitches at some of the DU JAT Exam Centers. This also led to the delay in the commencement of the test. Also according to the stated DU JAT exam pattern, equal distribution of questions was not there in the exam sections

This year DU JAT question paper included 12 questions in the General Knowledge section, 20 questions in the Verbal Ability section, 30 in the Logical Reasoning and 38 in Quantitative Aptitude. 

The Verbal Ability section was easy and consisted of reading comprehension, 2 short passages, active-passive, antonyms, word pairing, fill in the blanks and para jumbles. 

The difficulty level for the Logical Reasoning section was moderate and most questions were from the Analytical Reasoning area. The major topics included in the exam were arrangements, sequences and series, odd one out, visual reasoning, family tree, coding, statement conclusion, etc. Students said that some of the questions were lengthy and time-consuming.

With the most number of questions, the overall difficulty level for the Quantitative Ability section was moderate. Unlike previous years, the weightage of Higher Maths questions was lesser. Major topics included functions, limits, coordinate geometry, geometry, number system, inequalities, percentage, linear equations, and others. 

The General Knowledge questions were scattered across the paper. There was no separate section for GK. The General Knowledge section was easy with 12 questions on current affairs.
