Section 1: General English

No of Questions: 40

This section was pretty much similar to last year SET with not much of surprises or shocks. It was highly dominated by Vocabulary and its application based questions such as Synonyms, Antonyms and Word-based analogies. There were two passages of Reading comprehension with one set having four and other one having three questions respectively. Most of the questions were direct and easy. There were five to six questions of Verbal Reasoning such as Statement-conclusion and Course of action. Apart from these, there were three Grammar based Fill in the blanks, two questions from Odd one out and one question from Word usage. A prepared aspirant with good hold over Vocabulary would have felt less difficulty in this section.
