CAT 2013 Analysis - 6th November - Day 16

The last week of CAT 2013 Testing Window has started as the last day scheduled for CAT 2013 is 11th November. A lot of people are scheduled to take their shot at CAT 2013 in these slots. In most of the slots the paper has been tough and the story was the same in today's that is in 6th November slot also. This year's CAT has been a struggle for accuracy as the difficulty level of the paper across all the slots has been pretty high. Most of the questions asked this year are from the topics of Higher Mathematics such as Geometry, Co-ordinate Geometry, Functions, Trigonometry, Inequalities and Modulus. Even very less questions of Permutation and Combination and Probability have been seen across the paper. Mostly only one or two questions of Permutation and Combination and Probability have been seen in the CAT 2013 papers till now and those are of quite high difficulty level. No questions were being asked from the easy topics of CAT 2013 such as Ratio and Proportion, Percentages and Simple Equations. The Data Interpretation Case-lets have been calculation intensive and tough.


The Logical Reasoning questions, Reading Comprehension questions have also been on the tougher side. However in some CAT 2013 slots, Verbal Ability section is reported to be easy.

Below is the snapshot of questions that have been seen in the 6th November Paper of CAT 2013 -
