The surprise element in the paper came from the questions in ESI Section which were more focused on past schemes of the Government (Schemes from the year 1999 and 2000). Very few current events related questions were asked. Questions in the Finance & Management Section were comparatively simple and questions with more weightage to banking related topics.
