Overall the exam was pretty lengthy and difficult in general. GK was an intricate mix – from difficult to ostensibly easy questions. There were no current affairs questions from April 2019. Initial questions were tough, easy ones started questions pouring in off suddenly. English section was however easy, except the passage. Questions in the English section were of the type which students must have seen or done before. More number of questions were from Sentence Correction. Legal GK questions were very in- depth, and of different format.
