MBA/MMS CET 2022 – Day 3 Analysis | IMS

26 August, 2022

MBA/MMS CET 2022 was conducted on 23rd to 25th August 2022.

 

CET 2022 – Day 3 

August 25, 2022. 

(9 am-11:30 am & 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm) 

 

On Day 3, CET-2022 took place in two slots – 9 am to 11:30 am and 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm.  CET 2022 was held on three days from August 23rd to August 25th.

This analysis is based on the feedback received from IMS students and experts who appeared for the CET 2022 on the third day.

CET-2022 maintained a total of 200 questions from different areas without Sections. The overall difficulty level was easy, similar to the test on the first day, and easier than last year’s tests. 

VERDICT

The five slots of CET 2022 over the last three days did not vary significantly in difficulty levels – all of them were considerably easy. However, the first slot and both third-day slots (on the 23rd and 25th of August) were notably easier than the two slots on the second day. We have estimated that about 170 serious attempts could be made in these three easy slots. On the second day, approximately 160 serious attempts were possible. 

 

  • Both morning and afternoon slots of Day 3 of CET-2022 were easier than those of day 2.
  • As usual, CET 2022 consisted of 200 questions to be attempted in 150 minutes
  • Since there is NO Negative Marking in CET, candidates are expected to attempt all 200 questions. 
  • IMS estimate of good attempts refers to the number of serious attempts and excludes random attempts.

Verbal Ability/Reading Comprehension

 

Though there were no separate Sections in the test, the total number of questions in VARC was around 50 in all slots, going up to 58 in one slot. Verbal reasoning questions that are part of the Logical Reasoning questions were fewer in number than in the previous years.  The question types in VARC also varied across sections. But, since we cover all these question types in our study material, there were no surprises, or new question types that were unfamiliar. 

 

Morning Slot

The first slot VARC of Day 3 had around 58 questions with 15 RC questions and 42 or 43 VA questions. Overall, the level of VARC in this slot was slightly easier than that of Day 2.

The 15 RC questions were based on two passages – one short and the other lengthy. Most of the questions were easy to moderate. The passage topics are – Why an author writes a book and Growth and Development in the World and in India. The question types asked were mostly specific detail questions and inference questions.

The VA part had familiar question types.

– There were around 8 questions based on synonyms and antonyms and 4 on analogies.

– There were 10 one-word substitution questions.

In VA, there were some question types similar to those asked in the morning slot  Both morning and afternoon slots had questions on synonyms, antonyms, and analogies. The remaining question types asked were jumbled paragraphs, odd sentence questions, identifying the language of the root word, fill in the blanks (1 blank), and prefix-suffix questions. Most of the VA questions could be answered quickly with high accuracy.

The level of difficulty in the afternoon slot was easy.
