Thakur College of Science and Commerce, Mumbai and Slot: 4th Nov 2012 , 10:00 slot

1) Attempts made : Sec-1 : 14-15
Sec-2 : 22-25
(can't recollect)

2) Last mock score :
not worth mentioning :\

3) Test experience?
My system froze towards the end of 2nd section.They assigned me a different system.
Didn't lose any test time,but did break my link.Was in the middle of a loooong passage !
Did lose some time going through it again

4) Surprise element (if there was any)?
Lengthy calculations.Questions weren't that tough,but did take a lot of time.
Missed out on both DI sums :(

5) Tips on better handling of the exam?
Push away your ego.If you cant solve a sum,leave it !
Quant is all about managing time

6) Overall analysis? Incl. Toughness, new topics, sections etc.
Toughness : Moderate.But lengthy calculations in Quant

Sec-1 : Kept on solving questions which I felt were easy.Wasted a lot of time.
Couldn't check out DI sums.
In the end,marked a couple of ambiguous questions,by elimination(real low attempts else)
Sec-2 : Again,moderate difficulty.LR was good too.
Just lost link in between when was told to switch systems.

7) Any other query or something you would like to share
Billi gayi :\
