    2. Maths & Verbal was easy however Analytical was a bull shit. I had prepared for the Analytical part even then the questions seemed very confusing to me… The time span was too short to even establish the logical relationships in these questions. I could only 1st 10 of these & not sure if those were correct.

        1. Dear Sultan,
          Any applicant who was appeared in today’s test can compare more effectively than me. But I think the difficulty level of every test vary from time to time. Sometime test may be an easy one and some time it can be difficult. So it is hard to compare without appearing in today’s test. Please share your experience related to today’s test. Thank you

      Number of scholarships are depends upon the host country that how much they offer and how many countries will offer.
