JMET (10th Dec 2006) :

The JMET this year had easy questions compared to JMET last year and the recent CAT and IIFT. The pattern was as defined in their brochure with almost no element of surprise in it as was the case last year.  The questions in quantitative section that are traditionally of difficult level in JMET were not so difficult this year. Some of the questions were time consuming. So it means that candidates who gave importance to speed and proper selection of question will come out with flying colors. There was not much of surprise element in the paper and was much like what was expected which surprised some of the candidates.  As the test paper had easy  questions the cut off may be bit higher compared to last years JMET.

The test was of 120 minutes with a total 150 questions divided into 4 sections. There were no sectional time limit but there is sectional cutoff to qualify for the management institutes accepting JMET score but some IITs may not insist on sectional cut off. For each question there were 4 choices given and each right answer would fetch 1 marks to the candidate while each wrong answer would attract a penalty of -0.25 marks.

The Four Sections in the paper were :

QUANTITATIVE ABILITY : There were 40 questions in this section and selection of proper question was the key to success for this section. While most of the questions were not so difficult, there were few difficult and lengthy questions in this section which should not have ben attempted. .
There were 20 questions on traditional mathematics most of which were easy and  included topics like number system, divisibility, ratio proportion, percentage, partnership, Interest,  Profit and loss, Mixture , Ratio etc.   The remaining 20 questions were on geometry, logs, series, integration, matrix, functions, calculus,  etc.   In all 15 questions were easy, 10 of moderate difficulty level and 15 questions were difficult.
One should have devoted 30 minutes on this question and solved around 20- 22 questions in this section . Estimated cut off for this section is 16.

REASONING :   There were 40 questions in this section with  25 % questions based on verbal reasoning and 75 % questions based on logical reasoning.  The questions were based on coding –decoding, arrangements (Linear, circular , multi-dimensional )  , family relationship trees, data sufficiency, logical deduction, arrangements of sentences ( 4 sentences)  etc. One should have devoted around 30 minutes on this section and scored around 20 marks.  Sectional cut off for this section will be around 15 marks.

VERBAL : There were 40 questions in this section with 50 % of the questions based on 6 RC passages. The remaining 20 questions were on  Analogies ( 6 question) , Antonyms/ Synonyms  ( 4 questions) , Grammar ( 6 questions ) and Fill in the blanks ( 4 questions based ). Many of the questions in this section had close choices which made it difficult to select the correct answer. Most of the topics of RC were abstract in nature for example on Intuition and decision making, change, confusion and visualization . The passages were easy to comprehend and most of the questions were direct questions and easy to solve.
One could have easily solved 25 to 30  questions in 30 minutes . A good score will be 25  and the expected cut off for this section is 15.

DATA INTERPRETATION :  There were 30 questions based on this section and there 5 set of questions .  The questions were based on bar graph, line graph, spider graph, tables etc.  Around 15 of the questions could have been solved just by observation and there was no need or very little need of calculations in these questions.  The remaining  15 questions required calculations and some of them  were time consuming, especially there was a set of 8 questions based on  2 tables and graphs which was very time consuming and should not have been attempted at all. 
One should have attempted 22 questions in 30 minutes . A score of 20 is a good score and expected cut off for this section would be 15.

COMMENTS:

Gaurav Rajan : Although as it was mentioned in previous year’s paper that there would be sectional cut-off but there was not so I don’t think that this year also there is going to be sectional cut-off. It more depends on the way individual IIT evaluates and assess the performance of an individual.
