Based on student test experiences in the stream of EC on 15th February, 2014 – First Session: 1. Questions with numerical answers accounted for 40-50 % of the paper. Hence you cannot guess your way through the paper. General Ability section also has such questions. 2. In the papers of the past, there used to be some questions which could be solved by eliminating the wrong options. But with an increase in the “numerical answer” type questions, this method of problem solving takes a backseat. 3. With the high occurrence of “numerical answer” type questions, one has to be thorough and careful with unit conversionsso as to type in the correct answer. Earlier, the four options more or less served as guidelines. 4. Among general ability questions, there was one question each from Data Interpretation, Probability, Time and Speed (Relative Velocity), Series, logical reasoning and critical reasoning. 5. Engineering Mathematics questions were of average difficulty level. There were questions from Linear Algebra (2 questions), Differential Equation (1 question), Complex Integration (1 question) and Vector Calculus. 6. There were some direct questions from a few topics while some of questions needed concept of two topics to solve them. Such questions were tough to solve. Scoring sections were Networks, Control Systems, Signal and Systems and Analog Circuits. 7. The sequence of questions was different for each candidate i.e. no two candidates will have same sequence of questions. 8. There were no “Common Data” and “Linked” questions in this paper as well.
