Interview Experience
The test started with the verbal ability reading and comprehension. Especially for Technical students you will have to improve your verbal skills as they strongly emphasize on them.
Logical reasoning section is a little bit easy as for me I found it rather easy to handle. Mainly questions were on data interpretation and cubes and relations and ages, time and work.
Moving on to the third and last section that comprises of quant is simple. It only checks your accuracy and speed. Just improve your basic fundamentals.
In technical section , question from all mechanical subjects in sub-sections. It all checks your deep knowledge
It also includes numerical type objective
