Republic Day Discount – Use coupon code INDIA for 10 % off

First of all, a very Happy Republic Day to all our students (and other visitors here).

CAT 2016 – Complete Analysis, Paper Pattern, Expected Cutoffs, and Predicted Percentiles

December 5th, 2016 by

Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension was the easiest section like CAT 2015 and Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation was the hardest. Verbal Ability and Quantitative Aptitude was slightly tougher than last year but not too much. The number of Type-in-the-answer questions in the Quantitative Aptitude section went down drastically from 14 to 7 this year but that should not make too much of a dif
