SET 2015 ANALYSIS
The Symbiosis Entrance Test (SET) 2015 for admission to SLS Pune, Noida & Hyderabad was conducted on May 2, 2015, all over India. SET has five sections of Logical Reasoning, Legal Reasoning, Analytical Reasoning, Reading Comprehension and G. K. It has 150 questions, to be attempted in 150 minutes. Each question carries one mark each. There was no negative marking for incorrect attempts.
SET 2015 was on expected lines with few repeat questions and typographical errors. Overall difficulty level for paper was ‘moderate’.
Reading Comprehension - Just like last year RC was divided in 5 passages from a diversity of topics. Most of the questions were direct but options might created confusion for some. 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 35 minutes.
Logical Reasoning - Analogy, Syllogisms, Implicit Statement, Course of Action, Statement Assumption, Statement Conclusion, Strong and Weak Arguments, drawing conclusions from given statements, and Critical Reasoning. This section should not have taken more than 35 minutes with a good score of 20-23 marks.
Analytical Reasoning - This section too, was easy to moderate. Out of the thirty questions a good chunk was from Coding-Decoding and Puzzles were also asked. There were questions from Calender Dates, Probability. A score in the range of 25-25 can be easily achieved in this section.
Legal Reasoning - This section was a mishmash of questions based on Legal Reasoning and Legal Knowledge. 10 questions were principle based. This year legal was on a higher side than SET 14 but still full of predictable questions. Overall this section was of Moderate difficulty level and would have consumed 35-40 minutes of a student’s time. 22-24 would be a good score for this year.
G. K. – Some of the questions kept students bewildered like who is the cultural minister? ; judges in supreme court? This Section was of moderate difficulty level. A good score would be around 20-23. G.K. would not have taken more than 12 minutes.
SET played it safe this year. So no major surprises(some questions of Quant though) and what could have been irritating for students would be seeing so many typos and errors and some repeat questions in the paper.
Expected Cut offs for PUNE would be 105-109 and Noida would be 100-104 Hyderabad would see low cut offs.
