Overall, the exam was easy to moderate. A good number of attempts in the exam were 120 – 130.
Overall Recommendation:

  • Focus on accuracy. Because the paper is easy to moderate, you may be able to do more questions than normal. However, it is more important to get more of them right. In GA and CK only guess if you are at least 50% sure of the answer. Avoid wild guesses. In DI and Reasoning, double check your solutions and be extremely vigilant. Simply by avoiding silly mistakes, you can push your accuracy in these 2 sections above 90%
