The Statesman @The_Statesman 13

Your work ex duration must be supported by proof of employment from your employer. If your service certificate says 13 months, put 13 months as your work-ex. 

Kumar . @sumit6361 21

@The_Statesman  sir in the work ex column when i am filling my start date it automatically calculates my work experience as 28 months but as mentioned above it is about 13 months due to gaps between the ships,so should i leave it like that or remove the starting date.Thanks

Kumar . @sumit6361 21

@The_Statesman sir i have done training in my seventh semester where should i mention that.

Gave CL unproctored 16 today, found QA pretty tough:

QA & DI: 24C/30A = 66 (90.81 percentile)

VA & LR: 36C/46A = 98 (94.81 percentile)

OA: 164 (96 percentile)

And I used to think my QA is strong.

Some amount was lent at 6% p.a Simple Interest. After 1 year, Rs 6800 is repaid and the rest of the amt. is repaid at 5% p.a. If the 2nd year's interest is 11/20 of the first year's interest, find the amount of money that was lent out initially ?

Although I have the solution with me which goes as follows: Let principal be P Interest for 1st year= p*6/100. After 1 year, new amount = p+6p/100-6800 Interest on it for 1 year= (1.06p-6800)*5/100 And the rest is pretty easy....

My doubt is why did we add first year's interest while calculating the principal money for the 2nd year (since we are dealing with S.I and not C.I) , i.e. why did we add 6p/100 in 2nd year's principal ? Shouldn't the principal for 2nd year be just p-6800 ??

Writing this post after attempting Mock CAT on CAT website. Like some of you there are certain questions in my mind.

1) As VA sections did not have any question on Vocab, Paragraph Completion

2) There were no Data Sufficiency questions unlike predicted by GP.

Should we expect the same paper format in Real CAT? What do you think should be the percentage of marks required with this kind of format to get 99.5+.

P.S.- I hope everybody must be having their point of views and questions. Please discuss because every time there is strategy involved acc. to format.
