SET Analysis 2011
Symbiosis paper has never caused any problem for LSTians for two reasons. First, the paper is always doable and second; most of the topics or questions are taught/provided/tested during the LST course itself.
The examination comprised 150 questions, which were divided equally over the five sections. This year too, the examination was on similar lines as those of the last year.
The time limit was 150 mins.
Total Questions were 150 with 4 options for each question.
The overall difficulty level of the paper was moderate.
The overall break up of the paper was as follows
Section-wise analysis of the paper:
A total of 30 questions were asked in this section. The overall difficulty level of the questions was ranging from easy to moderate. An average student should be able to attempt at least 25+ questions in the section. Q.2 had incorrect options.
Legal Aptitude: It turned out to be another sitter for LSTians, as far as this section is concerned. 90% of the questions were dealt with in the classroom sessions or through Modules and also, some on myLST. A regular reader would have easily attempted 25 to 28 easily, if not all. Questions based on reasoning needed a bit of concept clarity. However, the knowledge- based questions were simple and doable. In fact, the Module provides answers to many questions, both in reasoning and knowledge.
A 25+ score in this section is expected.
A total of 30 questions were asked in this section. The overall difficulty level of the questions was ranging from easy to moderate. An average student could attempt 24+ questions in this section.
There were 6 passages. The passages were more or less from the field of Law. Most of the questions were factual and could be answered easily. There were some questions of contextual vocabulary also. The difficulty level of these questions was also easy. But on a whole an average student should attempt all the questions with an accuracy of over 80%.
This year's SET- Law -2011 examination had 30 GK questions out of a total of 150
questions, thus having a weight age of 20% ,which is quite significant.
Majority of the questions were from Static part of general knowledge with some questions on current affairs. The level of difficulty of the section was moderate. A score in the range of 18 to 20 can be considered as a good score.
Last, but definitely not the least, the expected cut-off: it can be safely estimated that it would hover around 100-105 (tentative), similar to last year's.
All the Best!
