JMET 2010
Analysis
The test of JMET 2010 one again a moderate paper in lot of time. Nobody can imagine what these IIT guys are planning but one thing is for sure that there will be a neck to neck competition. With the declared pattern by IITs with 120 questions in 180 minutes, the paper was a good mix of easy DI, moderate quant and reasoning and tough language section. The 180 minutes made the work easy but competition fierce.
On a whole verbal was toughest of all and rest of the three section stands on a common ground. DI and Quant had all standard verity of questions. Logical reasoning section was bit tricky with god mix of Puzzles, Critical reasoning and Analytical reasoning.
