[image] CAT 2013 Myth Vs Reality | GP SPEAKS Gpkafunda I have been getting a lot of queries from students about normalization and relative level of difficulty of CAT across slots. CL Academic Team has just released a Research Report on their findings of the CAT 2013 attempts data. I wil...

@Dante_ftw1 haha, yeah. gp has got epic-trolled. first he assumed that CAT would stay at the same LOD as the last two years. he came up with an absolutely terrible %ile predictor in the initial few days of the CAT based on this assumption. then, a few weeks and a barrage of abuse later, he revised the predictor, to calculate %iles based on the accuracy estimates of students, which are typically very poor in an exam like CAT. now, like a stubborn child he is sticking to this new theory, simply because he and his team have put a lot of man-hours into this.
LOFT is serious stuff, but then the way CAT is delivered, it appears LOFT is applied only partially. There are still large chunks of question sets common to exams delivered in the same slot. So there is definitely a lot of post-equating going on. In any case, they would not be taking 2 months to announce results if they believed all slots were of the same LOD.

This is for People in second slot : Please vote how much you are expecting in section-1 (follow +3/-1 format) This will allow us to evaluate our performances. Lets have some transparency among ourselves :smiley: You can add you verbal scores in comments as an added info.

Puys... it seems that the general consensus is that today's cat 2nd section in the evening slot was insanely tough and could possibly be the contender for toughest 2nd section in cat 2013..so in that case if our initially cutoffs are decided based upon our slot performance,then the cutoffs would ...

@freddie_magic questions were difficult. think about it, there are people who are getting paid to make these questions; it's their job. dont get fooled by people claiming it was easy, because it wasnt. this is especially true of verbal, where ppl who are lesser prepared tend to find the section easy. imo, all sections in all slots were mod-tough this time, at least thats how the program that generated your test intended it to be
that said, sectional 95s would not drop to 30s, will settle at mid 40s maybe

acc. to your poll, a score of 45 translates to 80 percentile if your poll is treated as a valid sample. i hope thats not right!

hmm, yes, but it also has a lot to do with personal strengths and weaknesses. i am better at rc than lr, hence i went for rc(with some success). i am better at qa than di, so i went for qa in the first section(with not much success). what's important is that you minimize errors, whichever set of questions you end up picking

@Abhi_2013 you raised a very valid point - "The question-setter made sure that either one does DI or the toughest QA questions, but not both." in fact i believe this was true of the 2nd section too, at least in my slot. you had to choose between devoting time to rcs and correctly solving 7-8 questions, or spending time on lengthy and difficult lr sets

yes, that is why i believe that before doing an mba, it makes sense to change jobs frequently. makes it look like you're trying hard to do something really productive to boast of
