If we talk about the over-all difficulty level of the examination, then we can say that it was really a Difficult and Out of The Box paper. In fact students were not able to define what were the questions asked. And the most surprising factor we have seen in the exam was Different Weightage for Different Question. This is a new strategy adopted by recruiters to urge the students to attempt more number of difficult question. Let us look at the individual sections below:
