The test sums-up to 200 Marks and is required to be attempted within a time duration of 2 hours (120 minutes). The best part is that there is NO NEGATIVE MARKING. The test exam comprises of four sections.

3.Business Environment 5050
4.Arithmetic Comprehension & Data Interpretation 5050
Total 200200

  1. English Comprehension: The English Comprehension section includes paragraphs based on which some questions will be asked. The paragraph is to be comprehended and the most appropriate answer is to be selected from the available 4 options. There may also be some questions based on Prepositions, Conjunctions, Nouns and other basic English Grammar terminologies. A thorough single reading of comprehension paragraphs can help solving the questions at once.
  2. Reasoning: Reasoning section included basic reasoning, qualitative aptitude, easy to solve puzzles etc. The candidate needs to utilize his/her quick reasoning capability though the questions are not very tough. The best way to prepare is to solve the exercises mentioned in "Qualitative Aptitude" by Mr. R.S. Aggarwal.
  3. Business Environment: Questions relating to the Current Business News, Indian & Global Economy, CEOs of various companies, Taglines of various companies, General Current Affairs, Indian Politics etc. are asked in this section. The best way to prepare is to Stay Tuned to Some Business News Channels like Bloomberg, CNBC, ZEE BUSINESS etc. and reading the newspaper daily. Newspaper reading is the best option we feel.
  4. Arithmetic Comprehension & Data Interpretation: This section mostly includes basic question on mathematics like Profit & Loss, Speed, Upstream-Downstream, Geometry, Algebra etc. Prepare from any 9th & 10th class NCERT Mathematics book. Though at this stage, we don't feel you need to prepare for the questions as basic as these.
