About CAT

With effect from the year 2009, India's most competitive exam CAT (Common Aptitude Test) has now become an online examination. It comprises of six major sections:

  • Quantitative Aptitude
  • This section has problem solving questions that are designed to test your understanding of mathematical concepts. Advanced quantitative topics, such as trigonometry and calculus, are not tested in CAT. To score well, you only need to be familiar with basic arithmetic, geometry and algebra, as taught at the high school level.

  • Verbal Ability
  • Questions on Verbal ability are asked in two formats:

    • Vocabulary Based: Questions on vocabulary would not be straight synonyms or antonyms. The types of questions would be either odd word out, analogies, fill in the blanks or any other innovative type.

    • Grammar based: Grammar is tested either through sentence correction, error identification or fill in the blanks.

  • Reading Comprehension
  • Reading Comprehension typically has around 5 to 6 passages followed by 5 to 6 questions per passage. Each of the passages would be of around 800 to 1300 words. The questions are a good mix of fact based and inference based.

    RC passages are long and often based on unfamiliar topics. The basic idea is to test your speed and comprehension skills.

  • Data Interpretation
  • This section test, how well one can interpret information from the raw data given and if one can do calculations without the help of a calculator and that too fast enough. The typical question types are:

    • Bar Chart
    • Geometrical diagrams
    • Scatter Diagram
    • Table – Missing Data
  • Data Sufficiency
  • Data sufficiency questions test your ability to "reason quantitatively." This stands in sharp contrast to the problem solving section, which is designed to test how well you manipulate numbers. The typical question types are:

    • Equations
    • Numeric logic
    • Percentages
  • Logical Reasoning
  • You can think of critical reasoning questions as, essentially, mini reading comprehension questions. These questions tend to follow passages that are one paragraph in length. These questions primarily test the analytical and critical thinking skills. The typical question types are:

    • Matrix Arrangement
    • Number Puzzle
    • Numeric Puzzle

All the questions are multiple-choice to test your verbal, quantitative and data interpretation ability. One should have a deeper understanding of concepts and their applications to succeed in the CAT. It is necessary to perform well in all the three sections of the CAT as the test evaluates the overall aptitude of the student.
