My Experience with CAT 2014 (Slot 4)

I had not planned for this post but apparently many of you are interested in knowing how I performed in CAT 2014. I have received mails & messages asking for my attempt and for a write up on the process that I adopted. A few students have told me that there is some speculation about my attempts on social media platforms and hence to clear the air I am putting down this brief note.

XAT is the way

Xavier’s Aptitude Test (XAT) is the last major MBA entrance test for the season and possibly the last chance for most students to get a score that will get them into a good B school. Many good B schools outside the Xavier family, like S.P.Jain, TAPMI, IMT, MICA, etc., accept both CAT and XAT scores for admission to their MBA programs. And, the students who did not do well in CAT, hope for an improved performance in XAT for a realistic chance in these and many other B schools.

SNAP Shot!!

SNAP, conducted by Symbiosis International University for admission to its thirteen management institutes (offering 18 programs), is one of the most popular management entrance tests and is taken by over 50,000 students every year due to availability of a wide range of institutes. The level of difficulty of the questions asked in SNAP usually ranges from easy to moderate and CAT 2014 would be considered more difficult than a normal SNAP paper. However the limited time available for attempting the paper (2 hours for 150 questions) makes it a bit challenging for many students.

My Experience with CAT 2014 – Gejo

Like for many my CAT journey started at 5:30 AM! Yes, 5:30 AM! First, they allot me a venue 100 kms away (God knows why?) from my home and then expect me to reach there at 7:30 AM for a 9:30 AM test (God knows why). So, 5:30 it was.

CAT 2014 Analysis: Nov 22, Morning slot

The third slot of CAT 2014 is over and it was along the same lines as the first 2 slots. There were no surprises in the structure and the QADI section had 34 QA questions along with 16 DI questions in 4 sets of 4 questions each. In the VALR section, Verbal Logic and Usage contributed to 18 questions while LR and RC contributed to 16 questions each (4 sets of 4 questions each).

While the QA AND VA questions continued to be very easy, LR and DI were difficult and many students would have had a tough time trying to solve these sets. Verbal Logic and RC proved to be life savers in the second section.

CAT 2014: How many attempts for an IIM call?

This question is haunting many CAT’14 aspirants. The new CAT pattern this year does not have any precedence and implies that we do not have any data to estimate the attempts (or score) required to get an IIM call. Also one will not know the level of difficulty of the paper till it is conducted. Most of the “experts” in the test prep arena in any case do not want to stick their neck out and take a stand and hence in CAT’14 hence this lack past data is as good an excuse as any.
