CET 2018 D-Day Analysis

Quantitative Aptitude & Data Interpretation:

This section was tough as compared to the previous year, where the section was pretty easy. Questions were tricky and were based on calculations. Arithmetic Questions were in majority. There were 4 sets of Data Interpretation. Out of these 4, two were easy, one was moderate and the other was calculation-intensive. The sets covered Tables, Line Graphs, Pie Charts and Caselets. No questions from Numbers this year. A few questions were asked along with Data Sufficiency. No new types in any of the questions. No reports of any errors in the questions. Very few Questions on Geometry and Modern Maths.


Good Attempt: 35 questions and above with high accuracy.

Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension

This section was moderate but full of Surprises !. No questions were on cloze test, parajumbles questions had a very different pattern, grammatical errors questions were easy, vocabulary very unique questions were there. Reading comprehension questions had numeric data and each passage had more questions like 6-7.

Good Attempt: 40 questions and above with high accuracy.


Logical Reasoning

This was the toughest section of the exam with a moderate difficulty level. Many surprises in this section. Arrangements questions dominated the section, Critcal reasoning also had a great weightage with 15 questions. Questions were from Cause & Effect, Statement & Course of Action, Statement & Conclusions, Statement-Assumptions, Critical Reasoning and Syllogisms. Students found some questions on analytical puzzles to be a bit tough. Many questions included figures and diagrams. There were some basic questions, based on Coding-Decoding, Blood Relations and Directions which were not time-consuming. To our surprise slot 1 didn’t have any input-output questions, however, that did appear in the slot 2

Good Attempt: 45 questions and above with high accuracy.


Abstract Reasoning

This was the easiest section for the students. Questions were standard and not something new. There were around 12 questions on Series and 13 questions on analogies.

Good Attempt: 20 questions and above with high accuracy


Overall, the difficulty level of the exam was moderate and the difficulty level was almost similar for every slot. The test was computer-based with no technical glitches reported across the centres.
