DU JAT 2020 Analysis

University of Delhi in collaboration with National Testing Agency (NTA), conducted this year’s Joint Admission Test for admissions to Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS)/BBE and BFIA on September 07, 2020 in two different time slots. There were 100 questions to be attempted in 120 minutes.  This year the major surprise was change in distribution of the questions in the four sections. Each question carried four marks and there was a negative mark of one mark for each incorrect answer.  The mode of the paper was online. The paper had four sections and questions were jumbled.  The four areas were General English, Analytical & Logical Reasoning, Quantitative Aptitude, and General Awareness. The overall feel of the paper was moderate. However a few students reported that number of questions in the sections in two slots were different.
General English
This section had questions covering conventional areas such as vocabulary grammar, completion, & comprehension. The level of the questions was easy except one or two moderate level questions. There was one RC with 5 questions. All the questions based on it were direct and factual. As usual this section was dominated by vocabulary, followed by vocabulary based questions. The questions were doable and should not have been given more than 15-20 minutes.
The breakup of section was as follows:
