DSA theory test new exam pattern - Is it difficult or easier than before?

DSA used to publish all theory test questions and answers till December 2011. So learner drivers knew exactly what will be asked in exam. They used to memorized Driving test questions and answers unknowingly. To avoid this Driving Standard Authority made changes in the driving test pattern.

And now the theory test exam questions are not phrased exactly like revision test material. The motive behind the progress is to prevent learner from simply memorizing theory test questions and answers.

With these changes in driving theory test learner will gain a better knowledge and will be better prepared for driving on the road.

Since the new pattern came in practice theory test, many learner drivers started worrying - whether the new pattern would be difficult. We feel that the exam would be easier with the new pattern as learner driver would be more alert while preparing for the test.

Preparation with better knowledge and understanding improves road sense, and so it is very useful while actually driving/riding on the road.

We are curious to know how these changes affect the test nationwide pass-rate. Pass percentage before these changes were made live is at 63%.

Driving theory test pass rates are as follows:-

Nationwide Pass Rates:

Cars: 62.9%
Motorcycle: 55.9%
LGV: 88.4%
PCV: 87.8%

Whereas driving practical test pass rates are as follows-

Nationwide Pass Rates:

Car: 45.65%
Bike: 64.15%
LGV: 48.39%
PCV: 45.94%

The official statistics for the 2011/12 period are expected in July of this year. That statistics would show how the candidates have been affected by the new changes.
