So, finally the DU JAT 2021 exam was conducted by Delhi University amidst all safety protocols. This was a busy day since the exam was in 2 shifts.

The first shift was scheduled for 12 pm to 2 pm while the Shift 2 began from 4 pm and ended at 6 pm.

Technical glitches were observed and reported by many students from both Shift 1 and 2.

*Our mentors, after discussion with students mentioned that the number of good attempts must be 70+ with 90% accuracy in the exam.*

We observed mixed reaction from students, however, they acclaimed that this year's JAT was the most difficult of all the joint admission tests taken until now.

Here we are enlisting some highlights of the DU JAT 2021 Analysis for you all:

- The questions were a bit on the tricky side.
- Unexpectedly, Current Affairs based questions nearly didn't exist in this exam.
- It was lengthy and thus needed time, which in turn hampered the total attempts of many students.
- Most of the students from Shift 1 mentioned that the Quant and GK were tough.
- However, Shift 2 students had different story.
- As we generally read, there are 100 questions and 4 sections, then 25 questions would be asked from each section. This wasn't true in today's case.
- The paper comprised mixed bag questions i.e. random number of questions from each section.
*(quite different this time, both for students and for their mentors!)*

We're updating the article with all the latest news that we are receiving from our students. We'll be sharing **DU JAT Expected 2021 Cut off** as well. Stay Tuned!

- As per our conversation with the students, we inferred that this section was lengthy.
