TISSNET 2018 Paper Analysis

  • TISSNET 2018 was conducted in January 2018. It had 100 questions.
  • Last year, there were six sections in the paper viz. General Awareness (40 Questions), Logical Reasoning (15 questions), Mathematics (7 questions), Data Interpretation (8 questions), Verbal Ability (25 questions) and Reading Comprehension (5 questions).
  • There was no specific sectional cut-off. Therefore, one can say that the paper pattern remained the same throughout the sections.
  • The General Awareness section was much easier as compared to last year. Most of the questions in this section were from current affairs and international news.
  • The Data Interpretation section was slightly trickier comparatively.
  • The paper was considered much easier than the previous years by experts.
  • Thus the cut-off was also expected to go up in 2018, which exactly was the case in the official cut off declared by TISS.
