@katewinslet I would be attending it for the first time. Think they might be doing both of what you said along with knowledge sessions and mock PI's.
@RDN I am planning to attend. Looking forward to meeting you guys at the venue ! :)

Waiting for the rest with diminishing hopes...
C, L, I are the ones left out among the IIM's

Congrats to you and @firsty for IIM A call !! Make it count !
@RDN awesome scores !! Congratulations !!
I knew you would nail it.. you being unwell on your D-day might have reduced your score by a fraction. :)
Having said that, 99.6 is not that less, what say ? :D
Congratulations to all with huge scores !

As for me, a decent outing -

QA/DI - 99.65
VA/LR - 97.32

OA - 99.67

Not a 'DT like' performance. Nevertheless, being a part of this team has helped me get until this mark. It was an honor to be part of the DT'12.
CAT Centre: IFIM Business School, Bangalore
Date: 29th Oct
Slot: 10:00 AM Morning Slot

1) How many attempts you have made?
QA 25 + VA 30

2) Your last mock score? If you are there at repository thread, please provide the link here.
AIMCAT1301 - 99.00
SIM12 - 99.91

3) How was your experience of the test?
Smooth check in and no glitches faced during the test.

4) What was the surprise element for you?
DI Sets

5) Any tips to handle the computer based exam better?
Decrease the brightness of your screen if in case it bothers you.

6) Your overall analysis of the exam. Toughness, new topics, sections etc.

Section 1:

QA had a mix of easy + moderate + difficult level of questions. Managed to solve them all (don't ask me about the accuracy) and then comes the DI sets. Panicked a bit and lost it. One set was calculation intensive. Had to go forward with this one as the other two looked tricky. Not sure about the accuracy in here, had to guess. A cool temperament might have helped in cracking the tricky ones wherein I failed.

QA had geometry, co-ordinate geometry + inequalities, quadratic equations, PnC, number system, series, logarithms.
No questions from Time and Distance, Work, Functions, probability, Trigonometry.

Section 2:

Never attempted all the 30 even in mocks barring a few
LR had 9/10 questions. Can be confident on those rest assured that I did not overlook any condition(s). Did not find any discrepancies with the LR sets in my paper.
Coming to VA - Not my section when it comes to mocks. I marked the ones that seemed right according to me and in the end, reviewed the paper only to find that I had marked all.

This section had a good mix of questions - PJ's, FIJ's, SC's, Choosing the sentence that is out of context wrt to the others. RC's were readable with close options when it comes to questions. VA section - God to decide my fate. :)

7) Any other query or something you would like to share.
Be calm and composed. It costed me the DI sets. And be positive. All the best for 9th Jan !

@Estallar12 - You have rocked it !
