Guys, This is my two days effort… collecting data and analyzing. This is infographs on level of difficulty of the CMAT 2012 paper on day by day basic. Its based on student’s feedback so dont take it as 100% correct.

Some key features:
1. Normally second last day is the most difficult paper according to the trend.
2. Verbal & Logic are more stable sections with very less change in level of difficulty
3. Gk is the most fluctuating section of all esp on second last day
4. There are some fixed areas which are commonly repeated in CMAT so do them seriously.

Total 6 mocks available on Mockengineering site (3 Sept 2012 CMAT and 3 feb 2012 based papers)
