TISSNET 2021 - SECTIONAL ANALYSIS

TISSNET 2021 - English Proficiency

This section comprised 30 questions, out of which 10 questions were on Reading Comprehension based on 2 passages. Out of these 10 RC questions, 6 were easy and 4 were of medium difficulty. One RC passage was about 300 words long (it dealt with OTT Platforms in India) while the other was about 450 words and was about the possible role of coffee in the age of enlightenment. Most of the questions in this section were easy to medium. Overall, this section was slightly simpler than last year.

A good score for this section would be 25-26. A serious aspirant would be able to tackle all questions within 35 to 40 minutes.

 TISSNET 2021 - Mathematical and Logical Reasoning

The Mathematical and Logical Reasoning section in TISS NET-2021 was one notch more difficult than the one in the previous two years. Numbers of questions in the section were conceptual in nature. Out of the 30 questions in the section, 4 questions were on Logical Reasoning, 4 questions were on Data Interpretation (one set) and the remaining 22 questions were on Mathematics. The set on Data Interpretation was based on calculations and involved somewhat less user-friendly numbers. There was also one question on Statistics and one question on Logarithms. There were 7 questions on Arithmetic and 6 questions on Geometry and Modern Maths each. In Geometry, as many as 4 questions were on Mensuration.

The breakup of the questions was as follows:

By allotting 40 minutes to this section, one should have ideally aimed at solving about 22 questions correctly and marked the answers to the remaining, as there was no negative marking.

TISSNET 2021 - General Awareness

This section comprised 40 questions, each carrying 1 mark. Out of the 40 questions, there were 20 static and 20 current affairs questions. There were 8 questions on international affairs, 27 on national events and 5 questions were based on miscellaneous topics (such as health, environment, etc). About 9 - 10 questions were easy, 17 - 18 were medium and about 12 were difficult. This section was slightly simpler than last year.

A score of 23-24 would be a good benchmark. Attempting all GA questions would not have taken more than 20 minutes.
