However, due to Covid 19, there were some changes observed in the NPAT paper, it was held in a remote proctored manner meaning students had to attempt the paper from their home. The overall level of difficulty was moderate, with the Quantitative and Numerical Ability on the difficult side, there was a major emphasis on progressions and functions making this section relatively trickier to attempt. Unlike NPAT 2019, candidates could not switch between sections and they had to attempt the NPAT paper in a format, namely English Section, Reasoning, and Quantitative towards the end. Other than the Quantitative section, the difficulty level in other sections was set at moderate. The level of difficulty for the NPAT engineering paper was set moderately difficult.
