TISSNET Analysis 2019 - TISSNET or the entrance exam for Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) Mumbai will be held on Sunday, January 13, 2019. While preparing for TISSNET 2019, one must also be aware of the past pattern so that s/he is ready to face any surprises thrown during the exam.

 TISSNET was a paper-pencil based test till 2012. From 2013 onwards, TISS introduced the computer-based pattern of the exam. Till TISNET 2013, the paper was divided into two parts. Part 1 was common for all test takers which carried 50 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs). Part 2 contained questions based on the course he/she was applying for. This was either descriptive or objective based on the course. For e.g. for Social Service course, the questions were subjective and that of HR, the questions were objective in nature.

 However, in TISSNET 2013, there was a common question paper for all the courses and the similar trend followed since then. The total number of questions was reduced to 95 in the year 2014, which again increased to 100 from 2015 onwards.

 The TISSNET 2019 exam pattern is given below:

TISSNET Analysis -  Section wise

 

Based on TISSNET 2018 exam, we will now present to you the detailed section-wise analysis of the exam.

General Awareness: Majority of the questions were from current affairs and few were from static GK. The topics ranged from social and cultural issues, national policies/campaigns, literature, art, sports, awards and history. 

Quantitative Ability:  This section was of easy difficulty level. The topics included Set Theory, Clocks & Calendars, Series, Odd Man Out, Data Interpretation, Mixtures and Alligations, Progressions, Statistics, ERPV, Directions, Deductions and Trigonometry.

Verbal Ability:  Out of 30 questions, 10 were on Reading Comprehension. The RC passages were of 200-250 words. As compared to last year, the length of the passages reduced. Last year, the word count of the passages was around 350. The other topics were Fill in the blanks, Sentence correction, Error identification, Synonyms and Logical Connectives. The difficulty level of this section was easy to moderate.  

TISSNET 2018 Cutoff

 The TISSNET 2019 cutoff marks will be decided by TISS Mumbai after the TISSNET 2019 exam is over. It is expected that the cutoff marks will be similar to TISSNET 2018. As per the experts, the TISSNET 2018 cutoff was 72-78 marks.

 

Preparation Tips for TISSNET 2019

According to the experts, the TISSNET difficulty level is among the lowest compared to the MBA entrance exams. Hence, candidates will not have to spend much effort separately on the TISSNET 2019 preparation. However, if one has not taken CAT, IIFT, SNAP or other MBA entrance exams, then s/he may take exclusive preparation for the admission test of TISS.

 In order to crack the Quantitative Ability, Data Interpretation and Language sections, referring to your Class IX or Class X books for Mathematics would suffice. As far as the General Awareness section is concerned, going by the daily newspaper, magazines and the yearbooks of reputed publications will fit your bill.

As you have seen, the Quantitative Ability section consists of questions mainly on Arithmetic so a basic preparation would be fine. The Data Interpretation questions are not calculation intensive at all. As per IMS Learning’s analysis of TISSNET, “The DI questions required no solving. One could just look at the simple graph and answer all questions.”

The Verbal Ability section asks questions on Reading Comprehension and vocabulary. Read the tried and tested books for vocabulary preparation such as ‘Word Power Made Easy’ by Norman Lewis, Barron’s Word List etc. The Reading Comprehension questions will require no extra effort to solve as well given the length and question types.

Now, you can apply for TISSNET if you fulfill the conditions required as stipulated by the institution. These conditions are known as eligibility criteria.

For mire information about these eligibility criteria, you can use the link
