Overall Analysis-

English Language and Comprehension: this was the toughest section of the question paper. Approximately 14-18 questions were framed on comprehension passage, which was very long. So, test takers have to devote a lot of time to read and re-read the passage in order to understand the content.

Topics like vocabulary, direct-indirect speech, and active passive words were covered.

The expert stressed that the said section was rated as the toughest because for many test takers their strong area is either Mathematics or Computer Awareness.

Mathematics: difficulty level of questions carried in this section was ranged from easy to very easy. However, some few questions were framed on important topics like essential equations, set theory/relations, combination, trigonometric functions, three- dimensional geometry.

Below presented is pictorial representation of difficulty level of questions appeared in English Language and Comprehension  section-


Computer Awareness: This was the easiest section among all sections. Current affairs question related to IT sector were included. A question appeared in the exam was name of current Microsoft Corporation, CEO.

Logical and Analytical Ability: Nearly 38 questions were asked in the section. Topics like Venn diagrams, analogy, calendars and time, coding and decoding, data sufficiency, problem figures, etc were covered. The section was easy to moderate.

Below presented is pictorial representation of difficulty level of questions appeared in Logical and Analytical Ability and Computer Awareness sections-


According the director, test takers who attempted and derived correct answers for nearly 90-100 shall expect average result.  Further, he estimated that test takers who solved nearly 100-120 correctly, shall expect moderate to decent good marks. While test takers who solved nearly 125-140 correctly shall expect good-very good marks.

However, he added that the said expected result may vary with the IPU CET MCA 2014 final cutoff.
