Quite similar to the responses about the most difficult paper, candidates from third session also informed Quant to be the toughest.

An aspirant from Kanpur Aakash Gupta, who took the third session today informed that the overall paper was moderate. “Although I am strong in Mathematics, I found the Quant section to be a little tricky and lengthy. Since, I was confident in Math, I started with it and ended up losing important time at the end. Both General Awareness and Reasoning paper were very easy and many were common from the last year questions,” said Gupta.
