General Aptitude Questions :
All the papers will contain few questions that test the General Aptitude ( Language and Analytical Skills ), apart from the core subject of the paper.
A candidate appearing in the XE paper has to answer the following :
- Section A – Engineering Mathematics
- GA – General Aptitude
- Any two of XE sections B to G
The choice of two sections from B to G can be made during the examination after viewing the questions. Only two optional sections can be answered at a time. A candidate wishing to change midway of the examination to another optional section must first choose to deselect one of the previously chosen optional sections ( B to G ).
A candidate appearing in the XL paper has to answer the following :
- Section H – Chemistry
- GA – General Aptitude
- Any two of XL sections I to M
The choice of two sections from I to M can be made during the examination after viewing the questions. Only two optional sections can be answered at a time. A candidate wishing to change midway of the examination to another optional section must first choose to deselect one of the previously chosen optional sections ( I to M ).
