Last year's pattern regarding Progressions and Geometry has been repeated. Progression questions were formula-based and easy. Geometry had a mix and match ranging from easy to difficult. Algebra (Quadratic and Linear) were very easy. So were Time, Speed, Distance and Rate and Work. In Simple and Compound Interest, they were formula-based. Surprisingly, very low weightage to Permutations and Combinations and no question on Probability.

Number of Attempts should be 23-25 with a combination of 18-20 easy and 5-6 moderate.

No sudden surprised have been sprung. Those who have diligently and regularly studied should find their efforts' reward.

Section was overall on a difficult side. Descriptions for sets were lengthy, conditions were many. A set needed to be looked at carefully and couldn't be solved just y looking at it.

Good attempts - 13-15.

No bar graph, pie chart or line graph. Major emphasis on tables and data which can be built into a table. However, conceptual understanding was essential.

The Revolution was finally revealed yesterday after, an evening of super excitement and entertainment. Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, the brand ambassador of Robomate+ unveiled the Learning Management System, developed by MT Educare, after a fun-filled evening.

The evening was hosted by the suave Hussain Kuwajerwala. He started off the entertaining evening with a dance show by V Company. The boys of V Company were all over the stage with their amazing dance moves. Hussain himself performed on a couple of Bollywood songs. Other entertainers who had the crowds screaming for more were singers Mohammad Irfan, Mohit Gaur and Mansheel Gujral. Mohammad Irfan sang the songs, he has sung for various Hindi films including Baarish from the film Yaariyan. He was followed by Mohit Gaur, who sang his famous ‘cupcake’ song among others. Digvijay Singh rendered soulful numbers and ended his performance with the song ‘Badtameez Dil’ from the film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Dipti Sharma and Suraj Biswas also had the audience tapping to their numbers. Antara Mitra gave a splendid performance and had the audience on their feet with numbers like Duma Dum Mast Kalandar and Balam Pichkari from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

Finally, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan took the stage to unveil the Robomate+ app. Before the actual launch, Mr. Bachchan remembered his own days of school and studying and advised the students that “Education is an investment which gives dividend till the end of life.” Talking of how other material gains in life are short lived he said, “Money, anyone can steal, but knowledge can never be stolen from you.” He urged the students to “Never stop learning because learning never stops,” and emphasized the necessity to educate women and children.

Applauding the efforts made by MT Educare towards the profession of teaching he said that MT Educare has brought back the system of Gurukuls. It is now easy to have guidance from a teacher anywhere anytime and MT Educare’s efforts are unparalleled in this area.

He finally unveiled the app in the most innovative way. His movements were replicated on screen using augmented reality, showcasing the finer points of the app. Mr. Bachchan also enjoyed himself during the demonstration.

Mr. Bachchan introduced Robomate+ as the world’s first curriculum based study app that will not only provide lectures from expert teachers, but also assesses students with objective type tests. The test results are sent to the teacher who can work on improving the students’ weaknesses.

At the end of the evening Mr. Mahesh Shetty, Chairman, MT Educare, and Dr. Chhaya Shastri, Director, joined Mr. Bachchan on stage to launch Robomate+.
