CAT 2016 : Tips And Strategy For
The format has three sections: Quantitative aptitude (consisting of
mathematics and data sufficiency), English (verbal ability, English usage and
reading comprehension) and data interpretation and logical ability.
The number of questions per section could vary and this has been one of the
surprise elements in the CAT format.
In CAT-2008 the quantitative aptitude and the data interpretation section had
25 questions each and the English section had 40. Whereas, in CAT-2007, the
questions were evenly spread across the sections with 25 questions per
The paper is set for 300 marks and it has to be answered in two hrs fifty minutes.
Apart from securing the minimum overall score for receiving a call from any of
the IIMs, one has to clear the cut-off marks in each of the section.
Do's to crack it
Strong Fundamentals: The idea is simple- extensive reading is required for
thorough knowledge of all topics, good reading speed, quick mental
calculations and familiarity with all types of questions.
Practice is the key: Reading should be undertaken chapter wise and it has to
be supplemented with regular mock tests and practice tests.
Be cool and confident: Lookout for questions in your strength areas and manage
your time. Scan all questions. Do not worry about what you do not know and
what will be the cut-offs.
Smart strategy: The effective strategy would be to plan your test and test
your plan before implementation. It is also advisable to work with a mentor.
Computer based test
According to an earlier IIM release, the centres will be under both electronic
surveillance and manual invigilation. IIM has also mentioned about bio-metric
means of identifying a candidate like finger prints or iris scan, the details
of which are awaited.
Each candidate will be provided with a writing pad with numbered pages for
calculations and rough work. The writing pad with all pages intact must be
left at the desk, after the test. Rough work cannot be done on any other paper
Since, the CBT- CAT will be conducted during a ten-day period; the most likely
scenario is that students in each slot will get a different paper, which means
more number of CAT papers.
The format of the test will remain more or less the same as that of the
earlier paper and pencil tests. The only difference is that the candidate
would read the question(s) on the computer terminal and would click on the
answer on the screen instead of darkening the ovals on an OMR sheet.
The IIMs are expected to standardise the tests to ensure that all the tests
are of the same difficulty level. In addition to this they might also
normalise scores to iron out any differences in the difficulty level.
So there will be no difference between one test and another.
