As an average student, how is the difficulty level of PESSAT for PES University?

Shivangi Kumari 12th Mar, 2020
Hello Vidushi,

The PESSAT is not a tough examination to be worried for. The 90% of the questions are solvable even by average students ,unlike JEE Advance entrance examinations which have so many unsolvable questions especially for mediocre. But the only problem in PESSAT exam is that you have to do the time management. Like in Maths there are some questions which can be solved only in 4-5 minutes and these questions looks so easy but irritating when you start didn't get the answer and ended up wasting your time.

So you need not to be worried for the examination. Just know that which questions you have to attempt and what questions you will leave . Keeping  these points in mind you can easily make it to PES University.

Hope this helps !
