14TH AUGUST 2010

we got the instuction about the test.
ROUND-1 (elimination round)
Only 35 question in 60 minute.
There is negative marking. So be sure before answering. The questions were from age,numbers,time and distance,average,permutation, and 2 or 3 from reasoning as well. Most of the question were lengthy. even more than 10 lines(but real question is in 2 or 3 line).
DONT WASTE TIME IN READING THE WHOLE PASSAGE.
Only find the question and answer it. try to read and answer within 30 secs.
Otherwise skip and try the next one. Most of the question were easy and all can do it.
TRY TO ANSWER 25 CORRECTLY.
I don't know the real cutoff but I answer 32. I think they are almost correct.
