EU was easy as compared to the exercise & tests taken in PT materials. There were direct questions on vocab and some on verbal analogies. Some EU questions on fill in the appropriates.

Maths was easy and calculative as compared to the CAT, it was not logical just
concept-based direct questions were asked. Formula-based questions were few in numbers. There were about 30 questions of Maths. No Higher Maths was asked.

LR was not easy but not hard too. It was manageable. Questions on sequencing, analogies and on sitting arrangements with given conditions asked.

DS questions were moderately tough. The options to the questions in DS read the following:

Choose (a) - if 1 is sufficient to answer but 2 is not.
Choose (d) - if 2 is sufficient to answer but 1 is not.
Choose (c) - if 1 and 2 both are sufficient to answer but not independently.
Choose (d) - if any one of them 1 or 2 is relevant but not sufficient to answer.

In DI part, the graphs given were easy to interpret (Bar graph, Pie graph, Line graph)
There were three sets of questions. All over there were easy but the third set had indirect questions which required slightly more.

The last 20 questions in the exam formed the GK section. No questions were asked from sports. Most of the questions were based on Current Affairs, Economy, Indian Companies and the Indian Markets.

Overall for these 180 questions, 2 hours 30 minutes were more than sufficient. The paper was not more than averagely tough.
