As said by students who appeared for the examination, the Finance and Management section was a bit tougher. In fact the questions asked seemed difficult even for the one who have covered the syllabus properly. The numerical asked were in-depth and lengthy and approximately 12-13 theories were also asked in the examination.

On the other hand, ESI (Economic and Social Issues) was based on trivial facts. Anyone who have kept themselves updated could have attempted the questions. The questions cannot be said to be tough but if you don't know the facts then it may seem a lot.
