Let’s take a deep dive into the sectional analysis:
Verbal Ability was a complete offbeat this time where we saw the back to school grammar questions like identify the adjective clause, noun clause etc. A more time-consuming section with lengthy para jumble and para correction questions. 10 to 12 questions were easily doable in this section. A good attempt would be 14 questions.

Reading comprehensions were lengthy and not the usual factual questions. Still with time 10 to 12 questions will be a good attempt.
Quantitative Ability, was not difficult but definitely time-consuming. Keeping the overall time consuming one could attempt 12-13 questions. The section had maximum arithmetic based questions and a few geometry and modern maths.
As all exams, data interpretation was extensively calculations based, 1 set was easily manageable for all.
