Similar to yesterday, the overall examination was moderate level. It was NOT EASY. So if you have attempted low, don't lose HOPE. Now, today also we saw Reasoning played the crucial part in the exam. The puzzles tested one's ability to manage time and score.

Recommendations

The main aim for all aspirants appearing on 6th should be not wasting unnecessary time in any section or question. Prelims exam is all about managing time so if you waste those precious seconds on problems you are unable to comprehend.

A clear message to all the aspirants, it does not matter how much did you attempt, or how much someone else did. The result will decide everything. Predicting cut-off or being anxious about the attempts will only hamper your preparation.

Be smart, appear, perform and move one!

All the best!

May the force be with you.
