The session started with the PPT. It was of 1 hr.

2nd Round:-

The ppt was followed by a written test. It consists of 35 questions to be completed in 45 minutes. The questions were very simple but speed was the main factor. There was no negative marking in the written test.

The written consists of
1. 5 questions- Data Interpretation (Bar Graph problem)
2. aptitude questions (simple maths)
3. Venn diagram questions (refer r s agarwal whole chapter, do it first)
4. 5 questions- jumbled puzzles(R S Agarwal pg. 299)
5. 2 Questions-Analogy
6. 1question-syllogism
7. 5Questions-from Probability, chain rule, allegation of mixture, area

The aptitude questions were simple but time management is very important. They were mainly from both R.S. Aggrawal. The topics were- Average, Problems on ages, Percentage, Profit & Loss, problems on train, ratio, numbers, probability, chain rule, volume & surface area, series completion, coding& decoding, analogy(verbal), venn diagram, syllogism.

For Data interpretation, refer RS Aggrawal- quantitative aptitude.

3rd Round:-

The written test was the elimination round. It was followed by a Group Discussion. Out of 28 students 18 were selected for G.D.

They had made two groups of 10 & 8 students.
1. The topic for Ist group was “LIFE AFTER 100 YEARS”
2. The topic of the IInd group was “HUMAN AFTER DEATH, IN HEAVEN OR IN HELL”
