    TISSNET 2019 Exam Analysis by CL: Know Expected Sectional Cutoffs Here

    TISSNET 2019 was conducted on 13th January 2019. The exam was conducted in one slot from 2 pm to 3:40 pm across multiple cities. It was a computer based test with no negative marking. The total duration of the exam was 100 minutes for 100 questions. The paper consisted of three sections viz. General Awareness (40 Questions), English Proficiency & Language skills (30 Questions), and Mathematical Reasoning & Quantitative Abilities (40 Questions).

    TISSNET did not break its trend and GK continued to be the most difficult section of the paper. About 22-24 questions were from static GK and the remaining questions were from Economy and Current Affairs. The English Proficiency & Language skills and Mathematical Reasoning & Quantitative Abilities section were seemingly simple and the scoring sections of the paper.

    Overall, the paper was on similar lines as last year. The cut off for open category students is expected to be in the range of 72-76 marks.

    The in-depth section wise analysis is as follows:

    General Awareness

    It continued to be the toughest of the three as GK is never a favorite of students and many options needed students to read and know topics and facts in detail. However, most of the questions came from current affairs, polity, history and current social issues. A student should have attempted all the questions with 70% accuracy. A score of 23-26 out of 40 should be ideal for this section.

    Mathematical Reasoning & Quantitative Ability

    The section had a total of 30 questions with 17 from Quant, 7 from Data Interpretation, and 6 from Reasoning. Majority of the questions were either easy or easy to moderate. DI sets might have taken time solving for some students.

    In this section, Arithmetic dominated like last year. The questions were easy in nature. Anyone with a strong fundamental knowledge should have attempted all questions in this section. The DI section was dominated by charts. The sets required calculation and approximation would not have helped. One question was wrong in DI. A score of 27-28 will be considered a good score in this section.

    English Proficiency & Language Skills

    This section was much easier than last year. It had 30 questions. Fill in the blank questions dominated the section. There were no questions on idioms, one word substitutions and analogy this year. The grammar questions were straightforward. There was just one odd one out question. There were a few questions on synonyms and antonyms.

    There were two passages with five questions each. It was a mixture of factual questions and inference questions. The options were easy to eliminate. Hence, a student should have got most of the questions correct in this section. A student can expect to score 24-25 in this section.

    A topic wise division of the section is as follows:
