CAT Exam Analysis 2017 by Career Launcher - Sectional

 

The slot 2 of CAT 2017 didn't have many surprises to offer. The overall difficulty level of CAT 2017 was rated as moderate. In terms of sections, Quantitative Ability (QA) continued to be easy. Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension (VARC) section was also easy. However, the questions were tricky and options were really close. Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DI & LR) was deceptively tricky and just like the slot 1, it was the toughest section of the exam. Overall, the slot 2 was pretty much the reflection of slot 1 in many instances. Now, we bring to you the section-wise detailed CAT 2017 analysis by Career Launcher. 

 

Verbal and Reading Comprehension

 

There were not many surprises in this section. The summary questions became MCQs with negative marking. The passages were easy to read but the options were really close. The section became time-consuming because of the deceptively close options. In RC, there were passages from Biology, Economics, Current Technical Trend etc. The questions in the section were majorly factual and inference in nature. There were subjective para-jumble questions which were confusing. Overall, it was easy to moderate section. 25-27 questions with 90 percent accuracy is good. 

 

Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning

 

In DILR, 2 sets (Pizza, Chess) were easy and three sets (Dorms, Asset Management and Teas) were also doable but time-taking. The airplane set was also solvable but extremely time-consuming. This section was on moderate to difficult side. 14-16 questions with 85 percent accuracy should bring 99 percentile. 

 

Quantitative Ability

 

The difficulty level of QA section was similar to the slot 1. The questions in this section were just to check the basic fundamentals. Arithmetic and Algebra had maximum questions followed by Geometry and Mensuration. 22-25 questions with 90 percent accuracy should suffice for 99 percentile.  

 

CAT 2017 Cutoff by Career LauncherAccording to the expected CAT cutoff predicted by Career Launcher experts, an approximate overall score of 155-160 can lead to 90+ percentile.
