CAT- day one analysis…

The first day of CAT 2012 concluded. We at team MyOrangeSlate interacted with some of our students who appeared for the test today.

Here are some of the key pointers:

– The difficulty level is easy to average, and there were hardly any major surprises.

– A couple of questions on Vocabulary (word-usage). (MyOrangeSlate research team correctly predicted this and we’d included several word-usage questions in the CATability test series for the students this year)

– Verbal Ability overall was slightly on the difficult side as compared to the other sections. 3 RCs

– Highly calculation based sets in Data Interpretation- persistence more than intelligence will help you crack these sets

– Formula based questions could throw up some difficulty for less prepared students in Quants section. 5-6 questions on Geometry, 3 on Permutations-Combinations, 2 on logarithm

– Roughly getting around 35 marks should get you a call in some of the IIMs, based on the review of various top students’ performance (i.e. if you were regularly scoring 30-40% marks in CATability on MyOrangeSlate.com, you should be able to clear the expected cut-off for CAT this year)

Stay tuned to this blog for more analysis as more and more of the 2.14 lakh students appear for the exam.
