Upto class 5 th the Section 1 contains questions related to Patterns, classifications, analogies etc. Class 6 th onwards, it contains questions related to Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning.
Section 2 contains questions related to the topics and sub-topics relevant to the class in which the student is.
Section 3 contains questions related to the Fundamentals of Computers, Hardware, Evolution of Computers etc.
Section 4 consists of the questions of Higher Order Thinking. The topics are same as those of Section 2 & Section 3 for each class but the level of the questions gets raised a few notches up. This section should be started only after the previous sections are completed as it tests the students differently.
