If I'll give right answer in starting then questions difficulty level will increase. What does it means? Are all students giving exam on same time slot in same day having different questions?

Yes Gulshan. Let me give you an example. You must have watched KBC. The difficulty level of questions increase with every correct answer. Thus, if you are giving correct answers, then each subsequent question will be difficult than the previous one. This helps you to improve themselves for future assignments.

Is it a neccessary to clear all the sections of amcat exam? What if I have scored good in logical, verbal and aptitude but was not able to crack the computer section though I am a CSE student?

Sarthak, though the official website does not provide any clear information regarding this, I guess that it would be mandatory to clear sections in an exam. However, it would be better if you use contact details of AMCAT which is 011- 49657800.
