The GK and Logical Reasoning sections were tougher than last year. GK because it is a hard section to prepare for in any case, and LR because DU went back to basics and included a lot of Critical Reasoning. Having said that, there isn’t any section which we can call out as being ‘easy’. The remaining sections were at least at the level of previous year’s papers.
