    Paper analysis
    The paper did not contain any surprise. The Quantitative section was based on calculation and did not check the aptitude of the candidate. The Language section was of Moderate difficulty level. The Logical Reasoning section was also not a very difficult section to attempt. The entire exam was similar to the pattern of Bank PO exams. So it did not give much trouble to the candidates who had already attempted much difficult papers like CAT o XAT.
    Instructions
    Candidates are required to reach the test centre thirty minutes before the scheduled time of their test. Candidates reporting later than fifteen minutes after the scheduled time will not be admitted. No requests for exceptions will be entertained in this regard. The test centre may not be air conditioned but a comfortable environment will be provided.
    The candidate needs to bring the following to the test centre:
    a. Confirmation e-mail printout, without which they will not be allowed to take the test
    b. One primary ID and one secondary ID
    Candidates will have to mark the correct answer with a mouse click.
