NRA CET Exam Difficulty Level

Please note, the difficulty level of the exam will depend upon the post you are applying for. Therefore, for the Matric-level CET, your level of assessment will be of Class 10-level only.

NRA CET 2022: Subject-Wise Preparation Tips

Let us now look at how we can prepare for the NRA CET matric-level exam for each subject.

Firstly, we must understand that the level of assessment will be of matric level-only. Therefore, we can expect the questions to be simple and basic.

Quantitative Aptitude

  • The more important topics from this section are Number Systems, Ratio and Proportion, Data Interpretation, Percentages, Mensuration, Simple and Compound Interest.
  • Solve 5 questions from each of the aforementioned topics daily.
  • However, you must give due time and attention to all the topics as well.
  • Memorize tables up to 20, Squares up to 40, and Cubes up to 20. This will help you solve all the questions quickly and accurately.
  • Take 1 or 2 subjects at a time only. It is best to begin slowly and steadily if mathematics is not your strong suit.
  • Moreover, we advise you to begin with the more difficult topics first.
  • Please keep in mind, since the assessment is for matric-level only, all the questions will be quite basic. Therefore, if you practice enough, you should be able to score well in this section.

General Intelligence & Reasoning

  • This is the most important section of any competitive exam from the examiner’s perspective.  
  • General Intelligence and Reasoning seeks to check the problem-solving ability of a candidate.
  • The more important topics for this section are Coding-Decoding, Alphanumeric Series, Verbal Reasoning, Embedded Figures, Blood relations, Direction Sense and Order & Ranking.
  • For this section and for Quantitative Aptitude, we recommend that you take many mock tests to understand how you are faring in this exam.

General Awareness

  • The General Awareness section of the paper basically can be divided into 2 parts, i.e., Static G.K and Current Affairs. Among these 2, if you are asked school-level static G.K., it can be a very scoring section as questions will be asked from history, geography, elementary science, politics, novels, English literature and the like.
  • If you passed your matric exam a few years ago, its time to reopen your school books once again. However, be mindful of the latest syllabus as a reference point for your exam.
  • Read BeePedia capsules to stay abreast with Dynamic GK.
  • Take a daily GA Quiz with ixamBee for free!

English Language

  • The language assessment seeks to assess the candidate’s basic knowledge of vocabulary, grammar and communication ability. Therefore, if you want to score well in the English section, start studying the basics of English Grammar.
  • Improve your vocabulary by reading newspapers.
  • There will be a reading comprehension exercise as well. Thus, you must solve 3-5 passages every week.
  • Keep taking grammar MCQ tests as often as you can.
  • Read the newspaper in English daily. It will help you with your GA and English preparation simultaneously.
