Previous Year CAT Exam Analysis

We had a look at this year’s CAT exam analysis for session 1 but let’s also quickly go through previous year’s exam analysis.

  • CAT 2017 – Students felt Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension sections were a cakewalk, from having easy to understand passages to be able to manage the time, it was an added advantage provided to them. As per Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning section was concerned it was not just unsolvable but the questions were tricky, difficult and what not. Quantitative Ability had mixed type of questions. Some of them were solvable while others were tricky.
  • CAT 2016 – Last time, when IIM Bangalore had conducted this admission test, most of the candidates were said to be scared with the number of tough questions, that had appeared in each section. The options and question order seemed to be a little altered. CAT 2016’s difficulty level was said to outpass the difficulty level of CAT 2015.
