The paper was not tough at all and all the students with basic reasoning skills can attempt well in these tests. We are Providing the analysis of the exam so that you can have the idea of what all they have asked. There was no negative marking which made the students to answer all the questions.
Intelligence Test: (10 Minutes, 35 Questions) [Good Attempts:28-30]
In this part of the test, 5 figures were given and students had to pick the Odd One Out of the five. These types of questions are frequent in SSC Exams and it was on of the easiest part of the papers. Logics were simple and time was sufficient to answer the questions.

Selective Attention Test : Tough (8 Minutes, 30 Questions) [Good Attempts:24-25]
This section was time taking and it built the pressure on the mind of the students. In this part of paper, students were given some random numbers and they had to add all the odd numbers. It was quite tough to figure out the Odd numbers out of the series and then add them. Time was less and students have got 30 Questions to complete in those 8 minutes.
Spatial Scanning Test – (8 Minutes, 40 Questions) 4 Figures 10 quest [Good Attempts:34-36]
This was one of the easiest section where the students were asked to find out the shortest distance between two station.
