There was no reading comprehension and this was a major shocker for students. This year in this shift there was a cloze test (cloze tests were not seen in CGL Tier I exams in last 2-3 years). Para Jumble was a new introduction in this year's exam and it is time consuming. Questions from Antonyms & Synonyms were quite difficult.
