CAT 2004 Analysis and Paper Pattern
This year, we saw an extremely malnourished Common Admission Test (just 75 questions as against 90 last year). The Verbal Ability section seemed to have been imported straight from Her Majesty’s palace!

And the biggest surprise: Perennial villain ‘Quant’ turned saviour.
As expected, CAT threw up surprises. These were the prominent ones:

1. There were five options instead of the customary four, making it similar to GRE/ GMAT.
2. Every single question in VA was inferential, with the options being extremely close. One felt the necessity of an electron microscope to discriminate amongst them.
3. Grammar, the eternal favourite, was nowhere in sight. Para jumbles, where art thou?
4. Quant, surprisingly, failed to intimidate. It was like vanilla ice cream with hot chocolate and nuts on top. Need we say more?
5. DI/ Reasoning had no surprises. It was similar to the mock tests you have been writing in the past three months (in fact, easier).

Here’s an overview of how you should have attempted this paper:

CAT  2006
Section Topic No of Qs Total marks Suggested time (min) Possible attempts Possible scores Expected
cut-offs
I Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation 25 75 40 15 40 + 30-33
II Verbal Ability 25 75 55 16 35 + 28-32
III Quantitative Ability 25 75 55 15 40 + 38-42
Total 75 300 150 46 135 + 105-110

Disclaimer: These cut-offs are decided by our expert faculty who have attempted the CAT 2006 paper. They may not be the actual IIM cut-offs. These calculations are based on our experience and expertise.
