CAT 2018 Exam Analysis

IIM Calcutta conducted the Common Admission Test (CAT) on 25th November 2018 in online mode. The CAT 2018 paper was conducted in two slots, and CollegeDekho provided a detailed analysis for both. 

CAT 2018 Exam Analysis Video

As per experts at Career Launcher, the CAT 2018 exam analysis of the first slot suggested that the Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning section was not very tough. As compared to CAT 2017, CAT 2018 examination DILR section had shorter questions and they were easier as well. Out of the three sections, the Quantitative Ability section surprisingly had tougher questions and most of the questions were based on Arithmetic. 

In Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning section, 99 percentile was expected at a score of 48-50 whereas 99 percentile was estimated at a score of 45-50 in the Quant section. In Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension section, a 99 percentile was expected at a score of 75. The overall difficulty level of CAT 2018 was a bit more in comparison to CAT 2017. Experts at CL have, therefore, estimated 99 percentile at a score of 155-160.

As far as reactions from test takers of the first slot are concerned, they found the Quantitative Ability section to be the most difficult one while Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension turned out to be the most scoring section like always.

CAT 2018 Slot 2 was a little on the difficult side in comparison to the previous year's examination. Like Slot 1, Quant was difficult in Slot 2 as well. In this section, 99 percentile was expected at a score of 50. DILR was on the same lines as that of CAT 2017. In DILR, 99 percentile was estimated at a score of 43-45. In VARC, 99 percentile was expected at a score of 75. The Verbal Ability section was easier in CAT 2018. Overall, 99 percentile was expected at a score of 150-155 in CAT 2018 paper.

Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension - This section comprised of 5 passages and every passage was followed by 5 questions except one passage on Genetics that had 4 questions. The Parajumble questions surprisingly turned out to be easier as compared to previous years. The sentences were really short. The paper pattern was not very similar to the sample paper provided by the CAT team. This section had 34 questions, out of which 27 were multiple-choice questions whereas the number of Non-MCQs was 7. VARC had quite a few inference-based questions, which were not difficult to attempt. Overall, VA could be the saviour this year for all those who were dependent on the Quant section.

RC comprised of 5 passages and each had around 500-550 words. The passage with 4 questions was on Genetics while the other four passages were based on India’s view on its legacy of World War II, Elephant society, Plastic Pollution, and Consumer behaviour studies. 

Verbal Ability
 

Para-jumble

4

All the four questions were followed by four sentences, which were quite easy and concise. Candidates should've easily attempted all of these as these questions had no negative marking.

Summary

3

The paragraphs were around 80 words each and were tough to read. Therefore, the options turned out to be confusing due to the paragraphs' genres. Negative marking was applicable on these questions.

Para-jumble (Odd sentence out)

3

The bumblebee question had a sentence, which wasn't complete. This along with the PJ on erosion would have been tough to attempt. The other question was a sitter.

Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning - This section was similar to that of previous years. The DI-LR section in 2015, 2016 and 2017 was on the same lines. DILR had a total of 32 questions, out of which 24 were multiple-choice whereas 8 were Non-MCQs. However, the themes of the sets were more conventional which was highly unlikely considering the last year's CAT exam. Candidates could have easily attempted around 4 sets in this section with good accuracy. In some sets, there was 1 ‘difficult to crack’ question, which students should've ideally kept aside. In the Data Interpretation sets, calculation wasn’t required at all whereas the Logical Reasoning sets had an easy-moderate difficulty level.

Quantitative Ability - Candidates could not attempt all the questions in the Quant section and it, therefore, turned out to be the toughest in the last four years. Most of the questions in this section were based on Algebra and Geometry, which dominated other topics. The questions asked in the Quant section were not theory intensive. They were calculation and logic-intensive. A total of 34 questions with 22 MCQs and 12 Non-MCQ were asked in this section. Candidates' basic fundamentals and clarity of concepts were tested and they found some of the multiple-choice questions extremely confusing.

Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension - The exam pattern remained on the same lines as that of the first slot. The section comprised of 5 passages and every passage was followed by 5 questions except one passage on Grover snails that had 4 questions. The remaining passages in RC were based on familiar topics. The passages were easy to read and there were some inference-based questions, which candidates found easy to attempt.

There were 5 passages of around 450-500 words each.

Verbal Ability
 

Para-jumble

All had four sentences each and the sentences were pretty easy and concise. Negative marking was not applicable. The key to performing well in this topic was prior practice and awareness of deductive paragraphs.

Summary

3

As compared to the summary paragraphs in the first slot, the summary paragraphs were easier in this second slot. The paragraphs were short and candidates found them slightly difficult to read. 

Para-jumble (Odd sentence out)

3

In this topic, the questions were quite tricky. Hence, it would've been a bit difficult for students to attempt the questions in this area.

Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning - The DILR section in the second slot continued to be a pleasant surprise for candidates. The theme of the sets in CAT 2018 was more conventional unlike CAT 2017. Candidates had to face one very direct DI set with basic calculations. Ideally, the focus of test takers was supposed to be the quality of the selected sets rather than the quantity of the attempted questions. Some sets had a question each that was supposed to be ignored. The LR sets were easy to moderate as far as the difficulty level was concerned.

CAT 2017 Exam Analysis

CAT 2017, which was conducted in two sessions, did not throw any surprises compared to the paper format. The level of difficulty of the paper too was almost the same as that of CAT 2016. The scoring pattern was as follows:

  • 3 marks for each correct answer
  • -1 mark for each wrong answer (For MCQs)
  • No negative marking for wrong answer in Non-MCQs

CAT 2017 Exam Analysis Video

 

The paper had 74 questions with negative marking and 26 questions without negative marking. All the 74 MCQs had 1/3 negative marking while there was no negative marking for wrong answers for the 26 Non-MCQs.

Slot 1: Here our experts could deduce that DILR was a tough nut to crack. VARC was moderately difficult while QA was easy focusing more on arithmetic questions which would benefit Non-Engineers. Cut off levels, compared to last year may go up

The overall structure of the CAT paper was as follows:

The DILR section was the toughest section, with difficulty level moderate to difficult. The number of attempts in this section would more likely be in the 12 to 14 range.  

According to our experts, a good student could have attempted around 16-18 questions in this set. Very few students would have touched the attempt of 25 in this section. The cut-off in this section would be low and can be between 30-31 marks for an 85 percentile.
