CAT 2013 Day 1 Analysis
The CAT 2013 Day 1 Analysis suggests that the test followed the past years’ pattern and trends and did not have any surprises. However, in the Section 1, i.e. Quantitative Ability & Data Interpretation, the number of questions from Higher Math and Algebra were more than Arithmetic. Arks Srinivas, Founder Chairman, VistaMind and erstwhile Director of T.I.M.E. mentions, "In the Quantitative Ability section, there were more questions from Pure Mathematics and Algebra than Arithmetic. This made the Quantitative Ability section tougher than the rest of the sections. The Verbal Ability & Logical Reasoning section was comparatively easier than the Section 1."
Talking on the difficulty level of CAT day-1 exam, Vinayak Kudva, Product Head, IMS Learning states, "The difficulty level of the first CAT 2013 exam was moderate to tough. There were no surprises or unexpected turns in the exam." Next CAT 2013 Schedule
