The best strategy to attempt the paper should have been to attempt 18-20 questions of each paper in one go with 100% accuracy in a fast pace to secure the individual paper passing marks. This would have made one confident and further boost one to attempt further questions. This approach can safeguard one from developing a lazy and fearful attitude which a student develops when he/she tries to complete every paper.
The best preparation strategy should have been to rote down the modules completely because the framers put about 60-65% questions in mock tests as well as CSEET test from modules. Since the passing criteria is 40% marks for each paper and 50% overall, it would have been easily ensured by following the above strategy.
This section of the examination was the easiest segment of all because almost 25 questions were directly from the module. Grammar was so simple that without even reading it, one could get good marks just because of one’s past studies, knowledge and experiences. The successful attempt of 25 – 27 questions is expected from an average student whereas toppers would have attempted 30-32 questions successfully. So, passing in this paper was as easy as ABC.
Going deep into the paper, we would find that:
- 10 questions from grammar part was very easy to solve i.e. 1 question each from Foreign words, Idioms, Synonyms, Antonyms, Article, Spelling, Punctuation Marks, Homophones and phrases. i.e. En Masse, meaning of shelve
- 10 marks passage was a gap filling passage with adjectives and nouns which was an easy to grab opportunity for everyone.
- 6 questions were from communication and its types and ingredients i.e. listening process and types of listening- attentive listening, barriers to communication, Star Network, Non-verbal communication, PDA and Video – conferencing.
- 4 questions of Business Correspondence were from topics- characteristics of a good business letter and layout of business letter, business message and definition of MEMO.
- 4 questions of E-Correspondence were from Clearing of Spam, Encryption, Email Etiquettes and advantages of using e-mail. 1 question from Common Business Terminologies was of Repo Rate in repeat CSEET and Injunction in 1st attempt.
Legal Aptitude and Logical Reasoning
This section was of moderate difficulty because the one word questions were easy to solve but the questions of factual situations were slightly tough. The law students who have given CLAT or have passed first year college exams should have easily done this segment. Also a well prepared student should not have faced many problems. The interesting thing was that all 5 parts of legal aptitude have 4 questions asked from each part and all were very easy for a well prepared student.
Some questions were as follows:
Which amendment is also called Mini-constitution? 42nd amendment
Motto of ICSI
Damnum Sine Injuria meaning

Citizenship is in part?

Free Education to children is in Amendment no.? – 86th
This section was a moderate segment with easy verbal and analytical reasoning questions and a few tricky non-verbal questions. Due to No use of paper and pen instructions, the calculations based questions were avoided and so, this part became a very scoring part.
A mediocre student should have answered 10-12 questions out of total 15 questions. Whereas a laborious student with perfect preparation could have easily answered all 14-15.
Questions were as follows:
1 from Clock and 1 from Calendar
2 Syllogism, 1 Venn diagram, 1 Mirror Image
1 Blood relation, 2 Gap filler, 2 Coding Decoding
1 Find the missing part
Overall in this part, 23-25 attempts would be a must/benchmark successful attempts for mediocre students and 29-30 for well-prepared students.
Economics and Business Environment
This section was a tough section with questions asked from deep down into the modules. Also, few questions were indirect, formula based which were tricky to handle. 3-4 questions were out of module and were very tough to answer. 5 questions were from schemes and could have been solved in a blink of eye. About 10 questions were from business economics, which were moderately difficult as they touched down the depth of the concepts and theories for the guys who gave the exam at 2 pm rather it was much easier for the guys who gave at 10 AM. 5 questions from business environment was really very easy to solve because it was straight from the lines of the module. 5 questions were from important organizations of the country i.e. RBI, NITI Aayog, SEBI, SBI ,CCI etc.
An ideal score to settle down in this paper would be 18-20 successfully answered questions, means just above the passing marks. Also, it should be noted that very well-prepared students have not more than 24-24 successful attempts.

Current Affairs and Communication & Presentation Skills
Current Affairs of 15 q. were just about headlines. 25 percent of the paper was very easy and given just to check whether the students are up-to-date or not. 50-60% of the paper was about keeping in mind the headlines of the newspaper from January 2020 till date i.e. Mergers, Summits, and Heads of different portfolios/companies. Remaining part of paper was from deep inside the news materials which was tough to solve.
The benchmark successful attempts for a mediocre student could be 7-8 whereas 11-12 for a hardworking and a prepared student.
A 3 questions passage was so easy to solve out. 5 questions were directly from the module regarding presentation skills and what to avoid and what not to avoid? 5 questions were from sentence fillers in a conversation between two persons and all were just about application of verbal sense, those questions could have been easily solved out by a chatter-box. Remaining 7 questions from literature and grammatical skills were a mixture of easy and tough questions.
A benchmark successful attempt would be 11-12 for a mediocre student and 14-16 for a well prepared student.
