## TISS-NET 2017 Test Analysis

The structure of the TISS-NET was the same as that of last year. The test was online and was divided into 3 sections – General Awareness (40 questions), Mathematical and Logical Reasoning (30 questions) and English (30 questions). There were 100 questions for 100 marks. There was no negative marking. The overall difficulty level of the exam was slightly easier to that of last year.

 Section Subject Area No. of Questions Marks Section I General Awareness 40 40 Section II Mathematical & Logical Reasoning 30 30 Section III English 30 30

The analysis of each of the sections (based on some students’ reports) is as given below.

Section I: General Awareness

This section comprised 40 questions, each carrying 1 mark. Out of the 40 questions, there were 25 static ones and 15 were on current affairs. There were around 9 questions on international affairs, 26 related to national events and 5 generic ones based on biology/geography. About 20 questions were easy, 12 were medium and 8 difficult.

A score of 25-26 would be a good benchmark. Attempting all GA questions would not have taken more than 15 minutes.

Section II: Mathematical and Logical Reasoning

The questions on arithmetic were easy and all of them should have been attempted. There were 15 LR questions and at least 11 should have been attempted. Some of the questions were tricky. The 8 DI questions were of easy to moderate level.

The breakup of the questions was as follows:

 Area Number of questions Level of Difficulty Logical Reasoning ( Q 41 – 45 in the paper ) Set Theory 3 3 Easy Family Tree 2 2 Easy Complete the series 2 1 Easy, 1 Medium Coding 2 2 Easy Verbal Reasoning 1 1 Medium Arrangement 2 1 Medium, 1 Difficult Miscellaneous 2 2 Difficult QA ( Q 56 – 62 in the paper ) Arithmetic 5 5 Easy Geometry 2 2 Easy DI ( Q 63 – Q 70 in the paper, ALL standalone questions ) Bar graph 3 of Bar graph + 1 of Bar graph and Bar line 2 Easy, 2 Medium Table-based 2 2 Easy Pie 1 1 Easy Passage-based DI 1 1 Medium

By allotting 30-34 minutes to this area, one should have ideally solved at least 23-25 questions correctly and marked the answers to the remaining, as there was no negative marking.

Section III: English

This section comprised 30 questions, out of which there were on 5 reading comprehension. There were 4 analogies, 5 single fill in the blanks, 4 idiom based fill in the blanks, 2 questions on Antonyms, 6 on finding error in the sentence, 3 questions on odd man out and 1 question on Phrase Substitution. Out of the 5 reading comprehension questions, all the five were of easy to moderate level. The RC passage was about 400-450 words long and dealt with ‘Nutrition, proteins and mutation of injuries’. Most of the questions in this section were of an easy to moderate level.

A good score for this section would be 26. A serious aspirant would be able to tackle all questions within 30-35 minutes.

 Topics Number of questions Level of Difficulty Reading Comprehension (1 passage) 5 4 Easy, 1 Moderate Fill in the Blanks (single blank) 5 3 Easy , 2 Moderate Word Analogies 4 4 Moderate Error in the Sentence 6 3 Easy, 2 Moderate, 1 Difficult Fill in the Blanks (Idioms based) 4 4 Moderate Phrase Substitution 1 2 Moderate, 1 Difficult Odd man out 3 4 Easy,1 Moderate Antonyms 2 2 Moderate
