c)Tecnical 100 questions
Technical(The Game changer and fate decider)

As far as me the decider is technical which covers nearly 100 marks.

Paper standard was increased compared to last recruitment.

More questions on small signal analysis mode and anlog circuits.

Networks 4-6 question

switching theory nearly 2-3 questions only

some equation and whether it have min or max and at which point nearly 3 questions came on such type models

All in all who excell in technical can win in the race ultimately...since more weightage nearly 63% technical..

In GK safe side seems to be nearly 14 and Reasoning 28 min can be done...so above those amy have more chances...

All this Im writing cause this may help who r going to give exam and also for future recruitment that time dis may throw some light for aspirants...
All the best and good luck for all....
