    MAT Intelligence & Critical Reasoning: Tips for Preparation, Topics, Good Score

    MAT 2023 Intelligence & Critical Reasoning: Tips for Preparation, Topics, Good Score

    MAT 2023 Intelligence & Critical Reasoning: The Reasoning section of any MBA entrance exam in India is considered to be one of the most difficult and time-consuming sections. The same is the case with the Management Aptitude Test (MAT). However, the section is very important for any student who wishes to get a good score on the MAT exam. MAT PBT 2023 will be held in February 2023, and MAT CBT 2023 exams will be held in February & March 2023. MAT IBT 2023 will also be conducted in February and March 2023.

    Many students get worried at the thought of attempting the Intelligence & Critical Reasoning section of the MAT exam. But what if we told you that the reasoning section can turn out to be the most rewarding in the exam? It requires consistent practice and adoption of good question-solving strategies, which are taught at many of the popular MAT coaching centres in India, but you can significantly reduce the time taken to solve the MAT reasoning section and make it a section you look forward to solving.

    However, your preparation must not be disorderly. It should be organized and based upon a proper understanding of the MAT exam pattern and MAT syllabus.

    In this article, we cover some of the most important aspects of the Intelligence & Critical Reasoning section of the MAT exam. Here, you will get an idea of the syllabus, topics, marking scheme, and an average or good score in the MAT reasoning section.

    MAT Exam Pattern 2023

    There are a total of 5 sections in the MAT exam. Each section has 40 questions. Every correct answer awards 1 mark to the candidate while 0.25 marks are deducted for every wrong attempt.

    The most important thing to note is that there is no time limit for each section of the MAT exam. Candidates are now allowed to switch between sections during the test. This is a very important factor to consider while preparing from MAT as the option to switch between sections can be beneficial for a candidate or cause wastage of time, depending on how well a candidate has prepared.

    In such a case, it is highly recommended that candidates place a time limit on sections during their preparation and also consider several factors such as their speed, accuracy, and target score in each section of MAT.

    Since time is a precious commodity, and very limited for the number of questions in the exam, deciding a section-wise time duration of the MAT exam must be the basis of any candidate's MAT exam preparation strategy.

    What is a Good CAT Percentile Score?
    February 2, 2023 02:44 PM

    What is a Good CAT 2022 Percentile/Score? - Check Here

    ‘What is a good CAT percentile score?’ is one of the most common queries of MBA aspirants. Well, the answer can vary depending on the college you’re targeting. For top IIMs, a 97-98 percentile in CAT is considered good but for other leading B-schools, a CAT percentile between 90-95 is good.

    A good percentile/score for CAT 2022, can be defined as one that helps you get admission into your dream college or university. For most candidates, a 90 percentile in CAT or above is an excellent score. But, for some, a 95 percentile would not be enough, especially when seeking admission into the top 3 IIMs in India.

    A majority of CAT test takers score 80-90 percentile and become eligible to get admission in 100s of MBA colleges accepting CAT scores in this range. However, there are several other parameters for getting MBA admission other than the CAT percentile. In this article, we have mentioned all the information candidates would need to understand what is a good percentile score in CAT 2022.

    CAT 2022 exam was conducted on November 27, 2022, and the result was announced on the official website by IIM Bangalore on December 21, 2022. CAT 2022 test-takers can check out the CAT 2022 score vs percentile analysis, CAT cutoff 2022 for IIMs, and other related information in the links below.

    What is a Good CAT Percentile/Score?

    Coming to the star of the show, a good score in CAT is actually an incomplete question. The actual question should be 'What is a good score in CAT for XYZ college?' Without mentioning what college you want to get admitted to, there is no value in any CAT score. Hence, a good score in CAT can be any score that lands you into your desired college.

    This illustrates one very important point that every CAT aspirant should have in mind, i.e. setting a target is vital to CAT preparation, and you should always base your preparation strategy on that information.

    Since each B-school has a distinct cutoff for shortlisting applicants for selection rounds, the definition of a good CAT score will vary from institute to institute. Consider IIMs as an example; in contrast to other B-schools like IIFT, IITs, FMS Delhi, and SPJIMR, which accept CAT scores below 95 percentile, IIMs require a minimum 95 percentile for admission. In contrast to IIMs, tier-3 B-schools might accept applicants with slightly lower-than-average CAT scores.

    What is a Good CAT Percentile for IIM Admission?

    In order to answer this question, we need to see the number of seats in IIMs, the number of candidates appearing for CAT as well as the interest of CAT aspirants in a particular IIM. Roughly speaking, the total number of seats in IIMs is around 5,000 and the total number of aspirants appearing for CAT every year is around 2,00,000 (2 lakhs). Hence, you have to be in the top 5000 candidates to be eligible for admission. And the top 5,000 candidates come in the 97.50+ percentile bracket. However, practically speaking, you can get into an IIM such as IIM JammuIIM Amritsar, etc. even with a 90 percentile CAT score.

    February 2, 2023 01:08 PM

    XAT Score vs Percentile Analysis 2023

    Understanding XAT Score vs Percentile 2023 analysis is crucial for XAT test takers to estimate their chances of getting admission into XAT participating colleges. The XAT score is the total marks a candidate obtains in the exam on the basis of the marking scheme. While the XAT percentile represents the rank of a student in the exam, relative to the rest of the students who appeared in the same time frame, along with a few other parameters.

    To obtain a 99+ percentile in XAT, a candidate must have a 40+ XAT score. Similarly, for the 95 percentile, he must score 35+, for the 90 percentile – 25+ marks, and for the 85 percentile, the XAT score should be 24+. With the help of XAT marks vs percentile analysis, you can get an idea about your chances of getting calls from XAT participating colleges for further selection rounds like the Group Excercise, Personal Interaction, and Written Ability Test. In this article, we have mentioned all details related to XAT 2023 score vs percentile analysis.

    Xavier Aptitude Test (XAT) is one of the most popular MBA entrance exams in India through which students can get admission into over 150 leading MBA colleges, besides XLRI & SP Jain Mumbai. Almost all popular B-Schools in India accept XAT scores for MBA admissions. XAT 2023 was conducted on January 8, 2023, in 79 test cities across India. XAT 2023 results have been announced on January 28, 2023. Candidates can check the links below to find the XAT result 2023 direct link and XAT 2023 toppers list:

    Overview of XAT Score Vs Percentile Analysis 2023

    The XAT scorecard is essential for understanding the XAT score vs percentile analysis. After analyzing the XAT scorecard, we estimate that a score of 34 in XAT 2023 can fetch you 95 percentile, and 32 marks can get you 93 percentile. A score of 30 will comfortably place you in the 90+ percentile bracket. XAT 2023 Scorecard will display only the percentage and percentile of XAT. The XAT Score will not be included here. To access this, candidates need to log in to the official website and download the XAT Scorecard.

    MBA experts predict that the XLRI XAT 2023 cut off will most probably be around the 96 percentile for XLRI's flagship PGDM in Business Management. XAT is considered to be one of the most difficult papers among all MBA entrance exams because of its scoring pattern. The XAT score vs percentile 2023 analysis will help aspirants understand where they stand in terms of competition.

    XAT percentile denotes the percentage of students who have scored less than you have scored in the exam. This is important to keep in mind when going over the XAT marks vs percentile analysis. Imagine there are 100 students in the class, and a student scored the highest mark in the XAT exam than any other student. It means that the score of that particular student is better than 99 students. Therefore, the percentile scored by a student is 99. XAT score denotes the total marks obtained by you in the entrance exam.

    XAT 2023 Marking Scheme

    XAT is regarded as the most difficult entrance exam for MBA admission along with CAT, essentially because of its marking scheme. XAT 2023 has a negative marking as well. The XAT marking scheme is an important element of the XAT score vs percentile 2023 analysis. Check the detailed XAT 2023 Marking Scheme below.
