Reading Comprehension - RC was divided in 6 passages from a diversity of topics. Most of the questions were direct but options might have created confusion for some. The Chrysler Story by Lee Iacocca, Services Act of Maharshtra by Shailesh Gandhi, Barring women in Temples by Damyanti Datta, Net Neutrality by Shobhna Kunwar etc. The overall level of questions in this section was EASY and an attempt of 25-27 questions can be considered a good score. Section should not have taken more than 25 minutes.


Logical Reasoning - Analogy, Syllogisms, Course of Action, Implicit Statement, Statement Assumption, Statement Conclusion, Strong and Weak Arguments and a good chunck of arrangements and surprise maths. This section should have taken up more than 35 minutes with a good score of 22-24 marks.
Analytical Reasoning - This section too, moderate to slightly difficult. Out of the thirty questions a good chunk was from Coding-Decoding and Puzzles were also asked. There were questions from Calender Dates, Probability. And as examiners always like to surprise us Averages, Ratio & Proportion, Time and Work, SI-CI were also asked. This section should have taken up more than 40 minutes A score in the range of 22-23 can be easily achieved in this section.

 

Legal Reasoning - This year legal section was dominated by Legal Knowledge questions. Without principle situation was also asked 10+ questions. Questions were from Constitution, Contracts, Torts and law of crimes etc. This year legal was full of predictable questions. Overall this section was of easy level and would have consumed 25-30 minutes of a student’s time. 23-25 would be a good score for this year.
G. K. – GK Section in the paper sprang few surprises with few current affairs questions. Major chunk of the section comprised of questions from static part of general knowledge. Questions, however, were easy and do-able. Sample some questions- PM Modi’s Lok Sabha constituency, duration of national anthem (in seconds), state with lowest literacy rate etc. There were some questions asking for very precise information like in which month NJAC bill was assented to by the President. These were the few tricky questions. Overall, the section was Easy. A thoroughly prepared student should be able to attempt 26+ questions. A good score should be in the range of 25-28.

 

Overall Analytical Reasoning was the most time consuming section where as Reading Comprehension gave a big relief to kids. Expected Cut offs for PUNE would be 107-112 and Noida would be 101-106 Hyderabad would be 93-100 would see low cut offs.

 

After result students will have to appear for WAT and PI. The SET Result will be released on May 20 2016 online on the official website of SET 2016: http://www.set-test.org/index.html
