A CGL aspirant Shubham Kumar Singh said, “The paper was moderate, as the questions on both the essay and letter portions were on current issues. Both the questions contain 50 marks each.”
Another CGL candidate Mekhla Banerjee said, “The essay topic was slightly unfamiliar as the questions are mainly asked on government programmes, but this year the question was on- ‘Importance of education in present time’, and the question on Letter writing was on ‘Letter to a restaurant manager regarding poor service in quality of food.”
The maximum word limit for the essay was 250, and letter writing was 150.
Indrajit Banerjee from Roy’s institute, Kolkata said, “As the precis writing is quite scoring, many candidates prepare for it. As the question on precis did not come in the paper, lots of candidates of shift 1 who have problems in language and writing skills will fail to get good marks in the paper.” The teacher also mentioned that in every competitive exam, descriptive questions always carry options, unlikely in CGL exams, there were no optional questions. The optional questions help a candidate to prepare well according to their choice.
