CAT 2017 Analysis by Bulls Eye

 

The overall difficulty level of CAT 2017 was moderate. In terms of pattern, structure and difficulty level, the exam was very similar to the exam last year. Unlike the common beliefs, the CAT examiners seemed to focus on a candidate’s aptitude rather than testing student’s ability to handle a disruptive pattern. Section-wise, Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension (VARC) section was easy followed by Quantitative Ability (QA) that was on the easier side on the difficulty scale. Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DI & LR) section was moderately tough. Now, let's know about the different sections and their difficulty level in detail. 

 

CAT 2017 Analysis by Bulls Eye - Section-wise

 

Verbal Ability And Reading Comprehension (VARC) - This section can be rated as easy this year. Candidates have specifically mentioned RC as the easier part of this section. There were 5 RC passages out of which three passages had six questions each and the others had three questions each. Other questions were from sentence rearrangement, odd sentence out & para-summary. Overall, the difficulty level was easy. 

 

Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning (DILR) - Just like the previous year, this section was the most difficult this time too. There were eight sets of 4 questions each. Analytical Reasoning and “Data & Reasoning” had equal weightage. 

 

Quantitative Aptitude (QA) - The Quant section was of quite similar compared to last year, the difficulty level was easy. Overall, the questions from traditional areas like Profit & Loss, Algebra, Arithmetic & Geometry were higher in number.  Apart from this, there few one to two questions from areas like Puzzles, Logs, Chain Rule Permutation & Combination, Number System.etc
