ICET 2013 Test Pattern:
(1) Data Sufficiency (20 Questions – 20 Marks)
A question is given followed by data in the form of two statements labeled as i and ii. If the data given in i alone is sufficient to answer the question then choice (1) is the correct answer. If the data given in ii alone is sufficient to answer the question then choice (2) is the correct answer. If both i and ii put together are sufficient to answer the question but neither state¬ment alone is sufficient, then choice (3) is the cor¬rect answer. If both i and ii put together are not suffi¬cient to answer the question and additional data is needed, then choice (4) is the correct answer.
(2) Problem Solving (55 Questions)
