# Important Tips for Postal Assistants / Sorting Assistants Paper 2 - Computer Skill Test

Hi Friends, I am Sandeep Verma from Rajasthan. I have appeared for last year's Postal Assistants / Sorting Assistants exam Paper II (Computer Skill Test). As the Paper I of PA/SA Exam 2014 is over and all the aspirants are worrying about the Paper II,  here I am sharing my experience of last year's skill test. I hope this information will help you clearing all your doubts.

### Details of Postal Assistants Paper 2 - Computer Skill Test

There are two sections in this test. Those are,
1. Type Test and
2. Data Entry
The total time allocated for these tests is 30 minutes. Both tests consists of equal time (15 Minutes per test) and equal marks (50).
It is advised to all the candidates who have qualified for paper 2 this year work hard on Typing master software (you can get free versions in net) to improve typing speed.

For Type Test make sure your typing speed is around 35 WPM on the Typing Master Software to gain 30 around speed during the test.

30 wpm speed will give you around 20 marks of the type test it means 1 wpm equals to 0.67 marks.

For Data Entry Test, there will be 10 empty cells in which you have to enter the above written terms like name, address, mobile no. etc....

For data entry test special prepration of numeric keys will help you to get good score (as most of the work depends on numeric keys only). Each cell also consitute equal marks. If once you moved to next cell, you will not allowed to move to the previous one.

Your marks will be deducted if you made errors while filling cells  and typing in the type test on the basis of your accuracy.

So Don't rush and try to keep yourself calm. And don't bother about the speed of others because this is only a qualifying paper.

Qualifying marks for general and OBC are 40 and 37 respectively. To understand calculations for the paper-2 see below example.

If someone scored 28 wpm in type test and 22 marks in data entry test, will get
Type Test =28x 0.67=18.76
and Data Test =22
and Total Marks = 22+18.76=40.76
in paper two and thus qualified in paper two.

My Suggestions :
I've already mentioned these points above. But I would like to stress them again
1. Practice well with Type Master Software with the speed at least 35 WPM.
2. Stay cool while giving the test. Don't bother about others as it may make you feel uncomfortable and reduces your speed. In result, you may lose the golden chance.
