Analytical Ability and Logical Reasoning
Of the 40 questions in this section, 5 were from topics related to Arithmetic and the remaining 35 questions were from Reasoning. Every year, a few questions from Arithmetic appear in this section.
Questions on Analytical Puzzles formed the major chunk in the Reasoning part. Among them, a majority were from Linear Arrangement (double row arrangements). These are always time-consuming. The lone set on direction sense was of moderate difficulty level, mainly because the questions were framed in such a way that each one needed to be handled individually. This set too was lengthy and arduous.
The section on Computer Awareness consisted of questions on Number representation.
Out of 10 questions - 2 were based on Operating System, 4 on Digital, 2 on Digital Number System, 1 of them was related to Web Programming while 1 question was on Digital Number Arithmetic.
The questions in this section were relatively moderate to difficult as compared to the ones in NIMCET 2016. This section had 50 questions. The difficulty level of more than 65% of the questions was moderate. As the paper had negative marking difficult questions would certainly have helped students increase their scores.
Overall, this section was moderate to difficult. In order to maximize the score in this section, the best strategy to answer would have been identifying easy questions and solving them first. A good strategy for this section would be to avoid spending extra time working out difficult questions. The ideal time frame within which to attempt questions in this section is 40 minutes.
The break-up of questions in this part was as follows:
The Reading Comprehension passage had a word count of 200, and it was a simple and run-through text. There were two questions on vocab - one antonym and one synonym - and both were easy and doable. The two detail-based questions from the passage were also easy and direct picks. Overall, this part can be rated as outright 'easy'.
Grammar questions were seven in number and most of them were easy and uncomplicated ones. Only a couple of them could be labelled as slightly moderate. On an average, an easy to moderate section.
To summarize, when compared with the NIMCET 2016 paper, the Math section this year was relatively difficult and the difficulty level of questions on reasoning was also slightly higher. The questions on Computers were moderate. The English part ranged between easy and moderate. Thus overall, this year's exam was evaluated as slightly tougher than NIMCET 2016 exam.
