Candidate have to choose one correct option out of the given options. One mark will be awarded for every correct response. Check TSICET Exam Pattern below for more details.
|Sections||Topics||Number of Questions|
|Section A – Analytical Ability||Data Sufficiency||20|
|Section B – Mathematical Ability||Arithmetical Ability||35|
|Algebraical and Geometrical Ability||30|
|Section C – Communication Ability||Vocabulary||10|
|Business and Computer Terminology||10|
Data Sufficiency and Problem Solving syllabus are the two main topics in Analytical Ability. This section will carry 75 questions under this section. All the questions are in MCQ format. This section aims to check different abilities of applicants.
Data Sufficiency: The questions in Data Sufficiency are in the form of two statements labeled as I and II. If the data given in I alone is sufficient to answer the question then choice (1) is the correct answer. If the data given in II alone is sufficient to answer the question then choice (2) is the correct answer. If both I and II put together are sufficient to answer the question but neither statement alone is sufficient, then choice (3) is the correct answer. If both I and II put together are not sufficient to answer the question and additional data is needed, then choice (4) is the correct answer.
Problem Solving: The questions from Problem Solving are aimed to check candidate’s problem solving skills. This topic is the most important in TSICET exam in terms of weightage of questions. Problem solving focuses on using generic or ad hoc methods, in a sequential manner, for finding solutions to problems. Some of the problem-solving techniques developed and commonly used in Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, or Medicine are based on mental problem-solving techniques.
Reference books is the most important part of preparation. Some popular reference books for preparing Analytical Ability section are tabulated below. Candidates can refer these books for detailed insight into all the topics.
