These 3 sections contain further sub-sections which test the students in different areas of the course. These sections majorly consist of multiple choice questions which are of easy, medium or of difficult level.
The Critical reading section consists of reading passages and questions follow based on the passage. The main purpose of these passages is to test the student’s vocabulary and rhetoric skills. The student should focus on sentence structure, organization of ideas, punctuations etc. In the Mathematics section, questions are of two forms: multiple choice questions and grid-in questions. Even though there is negative penalty for multiple choice questions, there is no negative penalty for grid-in questions. Therefore if there is a chance, then students can at least try the questions without worrying about the score being deducted. In the Writing section, there are multiple choice questions where the students are tested on the error identification, sentence improvement etc and an essay question is also given in this section.
