According to Anil Nagar, the CEO and Co-Founder of Adda247; ‘If we talk about the section wise changes then English was the section that showed the extreme changes in the pattern of examination followed by Reasoning, Data Analysis and Interpretation and General/Economic/Financial Awareness. In English Section, there were new pattern questions of Errors, Double Fillers, and Cloze test. In Reasoning Section, all the questions, apart from the ones on Data Sufficiency, followed a new and convoluted pattern that took the students to invest more time than usual in this Sections. New pattern Caselet and inclusion of Geometry in Data Sufficiency made Data Analysis and Interpretation Section more difficult and complicated than ever before.’
