RC passages were based on topics like impact of mobile phones, character study & social media impact. Within each RC, there were 3 fact based questions & 2 needed deeper reading, e.g. question types like tone of the passage, author’s opinion etc. A good strategy was to attempt all passages with few questions per passage
To summarize, NPAT 2018 was a test of time management, since students had 20 minutes lesser than last year. Difficulty level was a little above 2017. While NPAT authorities have not published overall cutoffs since 2016, 8587 is likely to be a good score to see you through
All the best for results!
