# IPU CET 2016 B.Com. Paper Analysis

Last Updated - November 25, 2016

This year IPU (Indraprastha University) B.Com entrance test was conducted on 1st May 2016. The paper consists of 150 questions and the candidates were given a total duration of 150 minutes to answer those questions. Each correct answer contains four marks and one mark is deduced from the total mark if the answer given by the candidate is wrong. So if the candidate has given correct answer for all the 150 questions he/she can score a maximum of 600 marks in this paper. This year, the exam toughness was moderate as compared to the previous years.

The question paper was divided in to 4 parts. The first part was the logical Reasoning Section which contained 35 questions out of 150 questions. The second section was Language Comprehension section which contained 40 questions out of 150 questions.  Third section was General Awareness which consisted of 25 questions and the fourth and last section was the Data Interpretation which consisted of 50 questions.

### Logical Reasoning

In the Logical reasoning section, most of the questions were comparatively easy. This section had questions from progression, odd man out and all, which helped most of the students to reach at the solutions pretty easily. The section also consisted of question from time and speed, distance, probability, area, perimeter and other quantitative ability questions which we all were expecting. This section is easy for all those students who had practised such kind of problems and improve their problem solving speed. Attempting 25-30 questions in this section will do the candidates to get good score and rank in the examination.

### Language comprehension

In the language comprehension section most of the questions were from vocabulary and English Proficiency. Some questions were from reading comprehension also. In such questions the candidates need to read the paragraphs given in the question paper and have to answer the questions based on that.

There were questions to interpret something from the paragraphin which candidate had to conclude something from the paragraph. In IPU CET B.Com paper there was one paragraph in the reading comprehension section with five questions associated with it. This is one of the sections where the candidate can score good marks. Because all they need is to read the paragraph given in the paper and find solutions to some questions. They don’t need to by-heart something. The major problem with reading comprehension is that, it is time consuming. So if you want to score in this section, you need to improve the reading speed.

In the vocabulary section questions were asked from synonyms, antonyms and all. The overall toughness level of this section is moderate. Questions were asked from Para jumbles as well as one word substitutions. For those students who like English and have little bit knowledge can easily find solutions to the questions in this section. If you can find out correct answers to almost 30-35 questions then it will be good.

### General Awareness

In General Awareness Section, questions were asked from current issues and other current affairs. Those who are up to date with the present day issues and have a little bit general knowledge can easily answer the questions.

Basically some of the questions were easy while some were pretty difficult. So we can say that this section was a little bit tricky for the candidates and took little bit more time for the candidates to think and find out the answer.

Out of 25 questions if you were able to answer to 12-15 questions then it is good enough to take you to get good scores.

### Data Interpretation

In the Data Interpretation Section of IPU CET B.Com, questions were asked to solve the problems based on the given data.

Compared to other sections, this is the one section which contained more number of questions and this was the same section which took more time for calculations also.

Even for finding out solutions to simple questions the candidates need some calculations.

This section consumed more time of students than any other section in IPU CET B.Com examination.

If the candidates are able to find out solutions to 30-35 questions in this section, then they will be getting a pretty decent score in the examination.

### Preparation Tips for IPU CET B.Com Examination
