Needless to say there are 100 questions under this component and each question carries one mark. Questions are not difficult; hence an average candidate will make essence of his presence in the examination.

General Awareness and Current Affairs :

The experts of Edunews opined that the questions under this component judiciously designed giving importance on history, environment on micro and macro, geography, contributions of R&D, contemporary issues at national and international level in various fields, international relationship and their participation in the development process of India and vice versa, etc. The questions under the section looks to be difficult, nevertheless candidates will be able to score as per their ability since there is no negative evaluation.

Legal Aptitude, Reasoning and Mental Ability :
