CAT 2015-Brief first report
Familiar CAT is back again! But this time it was the updated one, extended in length and duration, and, on several counts, much more test taker lives than in the past few years. The exam is planned to have a total of four test sessions and, consequently, only four test forms, sufficiently long 20-day saga now drastically dropped to two days. Today the first meeting of the CAT2015 was carried out at hundreds of testing centers, covering nearly 100 cities across the country, with almost no technical glitches were reported.
As reported in the IIM CAT paper consisted of two sections: (1) quantitative abilities and interpreting the data, and (2) verbal ability and logical thinking-with each section with 50 points, and a total of 170 minutes. This greatly enhanced version of more duration 30 question by section 140 minutes and seen over the last few years. Also at this time, there was 15 min tutorial at the beginning of the test, unlike that in the last few years. Instead, an integrated demo test, complete with instructions and frequently asked questions, submitted in advance, to help students become familiar with pattern and experience.
While you test, allowing candidates to the examination centres were so strict, as mentioned on the Web site of cat, several centres, told students that even the Frolic was not done.
In addition, in some centers, infrastructure is reported to be below par on the exam as a cat. And it was not limited by not having AC alone-even computer system used for the test administration were old and not give students a happy experience test.
Our interaction with several students across the country who took the cat in the first slot, CAT, in General, was considered not very different in terms of quality of content or difficulty level compared to the past several kiosks, but individual stations are reported to have seen significant changes in the level of difficulty, especially when compared to the past few years. In section I, the area of quantitative abilities was perceived as relatively simple and doable for most students than with high level concepts and complexity seen in the recent past. However, the opposite can be said about the interpretation of the data, in which the parties involved and the relatively complex sets appeared, when compared with a moderate level of complexity seen before. In section II, Part VA and RC have been estimated to be approximately at the same level as in the last few years, but LR part was considered very difficult.
T.i.m.e students expressed their happiness that the number of DI matters (clause section-I) and LR (section II), which appeared in the cat was the same as they were in the past three AIMCATs data across time. All sets of questions in DI, RC and LR were four issues each, as stated on the official website of the CPR.
Both felt that those who are strong concepts in test areas would be able to do better. T.i.m.e students felt rigor in AIMCATs put them through a facilitated life in a real cat. They complement the comprehensive training of our courses have given them that helped them succeed in PPC.
It is likely that you will come across a lot of legally valid and sometimes invalid information floating on the Web, on various Internet sites about the types of issues, complexities, and a few other details about the exam. It goes without saying that you should walk with great care over any such content you can access. There have been countless occasions in the past, when students were deceived due to incorrect signals they picked up from such doubtful claims. If you show up at the check point at 22-m, not change its strategy of passing the test is based on rumours about the composition of several questions in a particular slot. This need not be the same for the subsequent nest.
Another important point, it should be noted that we emphasize to each conversation is impossible for even the IIM to predict the number of attempts to get the X or Y percentile. The end result will be the result, depending on the level of complexity of the document, and about how other Applications solved paper during the interval. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to not be swayed by predictions that you can find on the Internet or hear from friends.
In addition, in the light of the IIM was clearly not allowing the exchange of any information exam related, no student/coaching Institute/Internet portal may share questions or other information about the exam with anyone. There is no such information also can be placed in any Forum on the Internet. Thus, the policy put in place T.i.m.e where
No T.i.m.e people will share information about the test
T.i.m.e will not encourage/ask
