IPU CET BHMCT 2020 Analysis
The overall level of difficulty of the exam, according to candidates, was low to moderate. The IPU CET BHMCT 2020 question paper consisted of four sections:
English Language and Comprehension
The section English Language and Comprehension was the easiest. This section consisted of questions about synonyms and antonyms, meanings, and sentence formations. The comprehension part of the section was also easy, as most of the passages given were from literary works or news articles that were easy to understand.
This section consisted of questions about general knowledge and current affairs. If not prepared well, this section could be a little difficult since it required an understanding of all recent domestic and international events. The general knowledge questions were basic from subjects like social sciences like history and geography, though a few were asked from science as well.
Logical and Analytical Ability
The section on Logical and Analytical ability also included computer awareness this year. This change made the section a little bit harder than last year. All the other questions in this section were mostly easy, but a few among them were tricky. A large percentage of the total questions were asked from topics like number series, verbal reasoning, statements and, assumptions, etc. This section saw questions being asked from Mathematics of the level of classes 9th and 10th. This section was moderately difficult, though candidates having an interest in the subject found it comparatively easier than the others.
Knowledge of Accounts/ Commerce and Science
This section was subject-specific. Candidates who prepared well for hotel management courses and did a lot of background reading would have found it easier. Questions were asked about the basic knowledge that a candidate needs to have to appear for a hotel management course.The analysis of the IPU CET BHMCT 2020 gives an idea that a candidate should prepare a little harder to get into IPU CET hotel management than previous years since the pattern and syllabus has been changed a little.
