I just realized that  one can take  1505-N twice. 

One through the new interface and one with the  old interface. 

I have already taken this mock through the new interface and hence i cant see my sectional score. But the  old interface  1505 mock still shows available. What is wrong with TIME. One surely gets the option to take the mock twice  and further lower our percentile.

1. In the early-to-mid 1990s it became apparent that humanitarian issues were intrinsically connected to problems of peace and security.

2. Successful peace-building in the future will depend on the quality of collaboration among military forces, UN administration and civilian aid agencies.

3. Military functions are steadily increasing in complexity and oftentimes overlap with those of civilian aid providers.

4. As peacebuilding gains operational importance, a growing number of military leaders should accept the military's emerging dual responsibility to contribute to humanitarian relief and act as a fighting force.

Took 1506 in non-invigilated mode this morning

QA - 24C/30A = 66 ( Srry score here although the paper seemed relatively easy)

VA - 13C/23A  = 29 ( Lowest VA score till date)

OA - 37C/53A = 95 ( A srry score overall)

I guess %tile will be sumwhere around 96.

You can apply. Shortlisting will depend on your overall profile compared to other applicants. You have to apply separately for both cycles. All the best for CAT 14. Try other exams like XAT and GMAT also. The best score out of all exams will be considered.
