CAT 2011 Analysis – Oct 29, 2011 (Slot 2)

Day 5, 29th October 2011 (Slot 2)

The test had a total of 60 questions with the two timed sections of 30 questions each.

As per the students, Section 1 consisted of 22 QA and 8 DI questions. Questions based on Geometry were fewer than expected. There were no questions on set series, time and distance and Data Sufficiency. A majority of the questions were based on Numbers and Algebra. The DI section took up more time than the other topics. However, the calculations were easy and quick.

The 30 questions of Section 2 were split as 20 questions ion Verbal and 9 questions on LR. One of the passages in RC was tough. The other topics included the usual suspects – para completion, para jumble, sentence formation and sentence correction. A new type of question on ‘which sentence is out of context’ was spotted in this paper.

Overall this test can be considered to be on the moderate side. An attempt of around 22-24 questions in QA&DI and 17-19 questions in VA&LR with a cumulative attempt of around 39-43 questions and an accuracy of 85% can be considered good.

All the Best!
