•    Comprehension: While practicing comprehension students should keep in mind that they should select passages from different areas like Science, Philosophy, Economics, Art and literature etc.
•    English Language Comprehension: The questions under this section were relatively simple and thus they should be done right at the beginning.
•    Logical Reasoning and Analytical Ability: The analytical ability questions were asked from familiar areas and in familiar form.
•    Data Interpretation: Questions asked under this section were different from the ones that generally appear in MBA examination or in banking examination.

•    General Mental Ability : The questions under this section cover areas like sequence, series, progression, venn diagram, permutations and combination.
