The paper actually consisted of three sections namely,
1) Verbal Section.
2) Aptitude Section.
3) Critical Reasoning.
No Psychometric Test.
A passage was given which consisted of 10 blanks and we need to read the
passage first and then fill the blanks with appropriate statements, which was
given at the bottom of the page. (We have to be very fast in this section
b’coz passage reading takes a lot of time.)
