## CAT 2013 Analysis and Expected Cut Offs - 16th October Morning Paper -

I have already done the analysis of this paper and you can find this analysis on the below link -http://gs-india.blogspot.in/2013/10/cat-2013-first-day-16th-october.html

## CAT 2013 Analysis and Expected Cut Offs - 16th October Evening Paper -

This slot of CAT 2013 had questions on the same pattern as were seen in the morning slot. The difficulty level was also almost the same as that was found in the Morning Paper. The paper was said to be moderately difficult but 40+ attempts with good accuracy was totally manageable by aspirants who have prepared well for CAT 2013.

So any one who has attempted 45 questions out of 60 with not more than 4 wrong has chances of scoring much above 99 percentile.

Even if you have attempted less questions but your accuracy is high than you can also score high percentiles. Suppose you have attempted 35 questions in total and all of them are correct you have full chances of scoring 99 percentile may be even above than that. How much these negative attempts matter is only known by the normalization ghosts. From your end you should always try to keep your accuracy intact.

## CAT 2013 Analysis and Expected Cut Offs - 23rd October Morning Paper -

23rd October was a hell day for CAT 2013 aspirants who were scheduled to take their test on this day.

The paper that was encountered by aspirants in the Morning slot on 23rd October was very tough. The candidates were embezzled by the sheer toughness of the paper. One student of mine who used to score in the range of 95 percentile in TIME AIMCATS and in some AIMCATS his score was even in excess of 99 percentile, he was only able to attempt 16 questions in 1st Section of Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation and mere 16 attempts in Section 2 of Verbal Ability and Logical Reasoning. All students were quite depressed when they came out of the examination hall.

4 Questions of Geometry and 2 Questions of Coordinate Geometry.

4 Questions of Functions.

2 Questions of Inequalities and 2 of Graphs

1 Questions of Time Speed Distance

1 Questions of Probability

1 Question of Logarithm

1 Questions of Quadratic Equation and 1 of Polynomial Equation of 4th Degree.

No Questions of Ratios, Percentages, Proportion, Variation, Time and Work

9 Questions of Data Interpretation which were very calculation intensive and tough

The questions were voluminous i.e. they were big and needed at least one to two minutes to only read and understand them.

So 16 attempts with not more than 1 or 2 wrong can fetch you percentiles in the range of 98+ in this section.

__CAT 2013 Analysis 23rd October Morning Paper - Section 2__### Verbal Ability and Logical Reasoning

9 Questions of Reading Comprehension. All three passages were from philosophical domain and tough to solve.

9 Questions of Logical Reasoning. Comprised of 3 case lets. All were very tough.
