Lakh of aspirants took Common Admission Test (CAT) 2014 on Nov 16th, 2014. This year test for admission to Indian Institute of Management (IIM) and premier B schools were conducted by IIM Indore with support from Tata Consultancy Services (TCS). Candidates who took CAT and management experts questions on data interpretation (DI) and logical reasoning (LR) could well turn out be the game changer this year. Most found them difficult and time consuming. They said quantitative ability (QA) and verbal ability (VA) sections were relatively easy and there was a difference in difficulty levels in question papers during morning and evening slots.

Quantitative ability and DI part contained 50 questions of moderate to difficult level. Out of the 50 questions in this section, share of questions on QA was 34 and of DI 16. Experts estimate that candidates who could crack 28 questions in this section are expected to score a high percentile. There was a difference in difficulty levels in morning and evening slots. Those who attempted 55 to 60 questions out of 100 in morning slot with fair accuracy are likely to get into top B-schools while in evening slot, candidates who get 65 to 70 questions correct are likely to sail through a coaching expert.

Most candidates found logical reasoning questions very tough. CAT 2014 went off smoothly across different cities in the country. Unlike previous year, number of test centres across the country was increased to 354 in 99 cities. In 2013 CAT was conducted at 76 centres in 40 cities. This year, the test window too has been reduced from 20 days to two. 

The first session of CAT-2014 held on Sunday in 12 centres in Telangana and 8 centres in Andhra Pradesh went off without any major technical glitches. The test was perceived to be not very different in terms of quality of content or difficulty level compared to the past few CATs. However, CAT trainers say individual areas were reported to have seen noteworthy variations in difficulty level, especially when compared to the past couple of years. In Section-I, Quantitative Ability was relatively simpler when compared to the high level of concepts and difficulty level seen in the recent past.

The opposite could be said about the area of Data Interpretation. In section-II, the Verbal Ability was rated to be of roughly the same level as that in the last few years, but the Logical Reasoning part was perceived to be very difficult. The Common Admission Test (CAT), the gateway to the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and other B-schools, kicked off on Sunday. The exam has two sections: quantitative ability and data interpretation; and verbal ability and logical reasoning.
