SLOT-2 - Post-exam CAT 2019 Student Reactions
Bharat- For me overall exam was moderate, I was able to tackle all the three section within prescribed time. For me Quantitative ability was easy. LIDR was quite difficult for me.
Bhavna- Overall exam was easy to moderate. But still I was not able to solve the full paper, because of VARC, it's quite lengthy and I personally find it toughest for me. I am still expecting 90-95%.
Sampada- I have prepared well, so for me exam was not that difficult. Exam was moderate, It was not extremely simple. Taking regular Mock Test makes DILR simple for me. I have attempted 8 to 12 in DILR.
Aditi- Overall Exam was easy to moderate. Somehow, I will be able to manage all the three section in limited span of time. English was easy by Quant was tough for me.

Akansha- The overall paper was not difficult. One who has prepared well it was easy. LR was difficult according to me. Quant was difficult. I was not able to complete all sections.
Harsh- Talking about all three sections, the Verbal section was comparatively hard compared to the previous year and LRDI was moderate and quant involved more questions from Arithmetic. Though the questions were lengthy it was easy to attempt. I felt English verbal was a bit tricky. There was no particular dominating topic in LRDI. I think LRDI and quant were easy and verbal was the toughest. There were many TITA questions. The majority of the questions were from Arithmetic, hence, the calculator was very helpful for me. This time the CAT was synchronized, with big hall and proper arrangements. In arithmetic there were8-9 questions. In LRDI there were 4-5 and English there were 5-6 TITA questions. There were total 100 questions and 65 around questions were MCQs. Currently am working in KPMG.

Questions related to CAT
My Neet 2020 score is 566 . I belong to BC cat. in Tamilnadu. What are my chances in Tamilnadu government colleges??
It's quite difficult to predict that whether you will get seat or not as cut off marks for medical colleges keeps changing every year depending upon various factors like number of students that appeared in the exam, kind of marks obtained by them , toughness level of the examination etc.
But when we go through previous data then with 566 marks , you hold a chance to get a seat in a Government Medical College
In Neet 2019, 470 marks for obc category was the cut off marks to get a seat in Government Medical College under Tamilnadu state quota and it was for Government Medical College and Hospital, Pudukottai
With 566 marks also have chances in following govt college under state quota-
*Government Medical College, Omandurar Estate, Chennai
*Government K.A.P.V. Medical College, Trichy
And a few more
Above prediction is on the basis of past year data but cutoff keeps changing every year due to many factors as mentioned earlier, so to have a clear picture of the colleges in which you have to chances and
to get the complete list of colleges in which you have chances, you can go through our college predictor at
It gives you a personalized report with top college in which you have chances for admission , with the help of predicted colleges you can make better choice while filling your choices of colleges during your counselling
what jobs an engineer can do if he does not get campus placement and want to appear in CAT exam so that his work ex will be counted??
Most IIM's usually gives only 5-15 % of weightage to work experience (major weightage is for CAT score and PI) with points for approx. 24-36 months of work after which they don't count it ( which means work experience of more than 2-3 years will not give you any extra edge during selection)
Since you are an Engineering graduate, it is usually advisable to go for a technical job related to your field not just because it is easier to get but but because it is easier to justify in your CV. CAT values versatility but there is a fine line between versatility and randomness. What I mean to say is that if you go for a job which isn't even remotely related to your field of study then you'd probably be asked for reasons as to why you chose to do that. So if you were to go for a sales job after completing a degree in say, Electrical Engineering, you'd have to to explain your shift in career paths. To avoid such justifications and to to make the most of your CV, go for a technical job or maybe an Analysist position, anything which you can either link to your Engineering degree or to a Management degree.
Best of luck, Good day!
