TIPS TO CRACK CAT HAVING NEW PATTERN
The CAT question paper has two parts. The First part consists of
questions from Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation while the Second
part consists of questions from Verbal ability and Logical reasoning. Ability
to play with numbers and a strong hold on English language is a must to crack
The CAT 2014 exam was different from the CAT exams of the previous
years. The duration of the exam was increased from 140 minutes to 170 minutes.
The total number of questions was also increased from 60 questions to 100
questions. The average time to attempt 1 question in the previous CAT exams was
a little more than 2 minutes whereas the average time to solve 1 question in
the new pattern for the CAT exam is less than 2 minutes. Therefore, the
candidates will have more questions to attempt in less time.
In previous CAT examinations the candidates could go to the second
section only after the completion of the first section and returning to the
first section was not possible but in CAT 2014, the candidates have the option
of switching between the sections anytime during the exam. The candidates
therefore, will have greater flexibility in choosing and doing questions within
the given time frame.
