You are here: Home  TANCET Classes  Previous TANCET Paper TANCET 2014 MBA Math

Quantitative Reasoning or Mathematics as TANCET christened this section in 2014 had 20 questions. Many of the questions were relatively easy and a student who would have prepared seriously for the TANCET should have got 12 to 14 marks in this section if he or she allotted about 30 minutes to this section in the test. These questions appeared as the 41st to the 60th question in the TANCET test.

Few of the questions were best left untouched - only the examiner knew with what intention those questions were asked - question 54 (14th in the sequence in this web page) is a case in point.

Please note that the level of difficulty suggested for any question has been mentioned keeping an average TANCET test taker. If you are preparing for a different exam, the difficulty levels of quite a few questions could differ.
