1. I couldn't solve the first section. I was trying not to take risks and attempted only 13 questions though they should all be correct. In the second section I was a lot more focused. I did 27 questions. I found the first half of the paper very unconventional and hard. :(

2. you are absolutelt true if you take the case of evening slot it was also almost same.....

3. ABSOLUTELY CORRECT FOR THE EVENING SLOT TOO... :(

4. you are absolutelt true if you take the case of evening slot it was also almost same.....

5. blueloft 13 questions are not at all a bad effort.... if all of them are correct you are going to score good....and 27 questions in second section is an excellent performance almost impossible for most of the test takers....

6. pankaj dont worry it is difficult for everyone dont worry if accuracy is there you will score well....

7. I managed only 12 in first section and 19 in second section.

9. I solved 12 questions in first section and 18 questions in second question :(

10. Shweta ur attempts are almost same to most of the test takers....so in this competition your accuracy matters if all of your 31 attempts are correct you will reach somewhere 99 percentile but only when if all are right........

11. i was able to attempt 20 questions in the first section..and 24 in the second section..!
Expecting the accuracy percentage to be 90% in the first section..and 85%in the second !

12. i appeared for the afternoon slot...and i could manage to attempt only 12-13 in the first section and 17 in the second section.
i think 12 in 1st section is very poor...but i felt the paper was tough...dont know what to expect!!

13. Has anyone felt that the November 10th, Morning Slot paper had one DI set (Cricket, Chess and Football) with insufficient data? I don't mean to raise alarm unnecessarily but many have found the data to be insufficient.
