Some very imp pointers to take from whatever the CAT authorities  have released so far.

1.Calculator will most probably be available at the top-right corner of the screen ( as shown in their test_day guide document ) which also indicates that DI sets might become calculation intensive.

2.It says "Details on negative marking and PENALTY for unanswered questions will be shared closer to the test day".

Why would they write "penalty for unanswered questions" if there isn't going to be any ? or maybe there will be ? No one knows but it is better to assume that there will be one and to be prepared for it.

3.The scoring pattern and probably the normalization method will be revealed as LATE as possible and as i see it maybe even be a day or two before cat so that students/coaching centres get no time to make some stategy for whatever the scoring pattern is.

4. Given that they haven't revealed scoring pattern till now which they should have if it was as simple as a +3 -1 or a +4 -1 indicates normalization will still be there and accuracy will play an imp role.

PS : My views.I may be totally wrong

The post seems to have gained a lot of traction on fb group.A lot of people seem confused.Obviously.Just to clear : The aim of my post is not to scare you all or to speculate but to make sure that we all are prepared in advance for whatever comes on the D day! Release of scoring details closer to CAT and that too if there is even a slight change in it will cause more confusion if one is just unaware. ( just like CAT 2013 candidates were abt the absurd normalization ).A bit of confusion now will help avoid the much bigger confusion before the exam. Thanks

The deadline for registration is Nov 30th. Earlier application doesn't mean earlier call or anything. All profile based calls will be released in december (expected) and profile-cum-score much after that.

@A_J. There is NO advantage you gain by filling the form early... all the forms we get by 30th Nov will be evaluated only after the last date.

total number of triangles can be formed(nc3)= no sides common (x) + one side common n*(n-4)+ two sides common (n) .. therefore no sides common is -> nc3 - ( n*(n-4) + n) ..

Harish and Sachin are playing a game of matchsticks. There are N matchsticks on the table to start with. Each player, in his turn, picks up at least one matchstick and at most eight matchsticks. The two players take turns alternately. The player who clears the table loses. Assume that each player plays intelligently with an objective of winning. The first move is made by Harish. No player is allowed to pass his turn without picking up any matchsticks.

Instead of a minimum of one matchstick, each player has to pick up at least two matchsticks in his turn. The only instance that a player is allowed to pick up one matchstick is when there is only one matchstick left on the table.

If it is known that N is greater than 128 but less than 138 and that Harish picked up 6 matchsticks in his first move and eventually won the game, then what is the value of N?

Guys, in the test guide it's mentioned that

'If you do not understand a question on the test, you should answer the question to the best of your ability. Details on negative marking and penalty for UNANSWERED QUESTIONS will be shared closer to the test day.' Any thoughts on this?

This clearly means difficulty level will go down right? Makes no sense to have a paper where 60 questions is considered a good attempt and then penalise for not attempting the rest
