DU-JAT 2021 Exam Analysis
The exam analysis below will help you in understanding exam pattern and types of questions asked. Based on DU-JAT 2020 exam, you can prepare accordingly for your DU-JAT 2021 exam.
General English
In 2020, the section had questions from vocabulary grammar, completion, and comprehension. The section has an easy to moderate level of difficulty. The reading comprehension passages were a bit tricky; however, the other questions are straightforward and factual. The section is dominated by vocabulary and grammar, so candidates must focus on vocabulary building and time management to attempt all reading comprehension questions in time.

Analytical & Logical Reasoning
In the previous year, the questions in this section were increased from 25 to 33. The overall level of difficulty of this section is easy to moderate. Most of the questions in this section were based on series, analytical reasoning, coding and decoding. A few questions are easy to manage, but the ones that require calculation might be time consuming. Thus, practice mocks to ace time management and excel in this section.
Quantitative Aptitude
In this section, the questions were increased to 38 from 25, which was surprisingly a big change for DU-JAT 2020. For 2021, we are expecting the exam conducting authority to set the similar paperwith no changes in the number of questions. Overall the section will have questions from basic math and a few from higher math, which sets a difficulty level of moderate to difficult. So, one can focus on attempting most of the questions from basic maths to maximise their score, as higher maths questions can be tricky and time consuming.
