**Section 1 : Verbal ability
**Known to be a silent killer, the VARC section of CAT 2017 may live up to its name once again. It is named so because unlike in QA or DILR students who expect very good scores may see their expectations ruined once the scores are revealed.

Overall strategy Verbal section

With many readable and not-so-tough RC passages, the VARC section may appear very crackable, despite the tough VA questions. However, the close choices in the RC questions will make this section tougher than what it seemed to be. The VA questions, on Para Formation/Para Odd-man-out and Para summary will be quite tough to crack especially given that there were no options to guide the students. Lack of negative marking for these questions will definitely be a plus for the students.

Section 2 DILR Section

The comeback of tough DILR sections seen in CAT 2014, 2015, 2016 so will continue in CAT 2018 and the rampage caused by it would have left many IIM aspirants licking their wounds, unless they have prepared well expecting a tough DILR. This will be even more important as the toughness of this section seems to have only increased further. One factor that the students could take solace from is that the difficult sets will clearly unsolvable right from the outset, helping them drop out of those fairly soon.

**Section 3: Quant Section**

Last year the Quant section had 34 Qs with around 6 Qs of non-MCQ type. The number of questions on Geometry is on the higher side and some of them will be considered to be moderate-difficult. Modern Maths will show a very strong presence in CAT 2018. There will be a very good number of questions from Arithmetic, most of which can be quickly solved by a student with moderate – good level of preparation. So in CAT 2017 we are also expecting a fair Mix of Geometry Arithmetic Modern Maths.

**CAT Paper Analysis and Paper Pattern**

This year, we saw an extremely malnourished Common Admission Test (reducing number of questions over 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).
