Toughness was more or less similar to last year...except the fact that DI section pattern has changed...now there are caselets with 1-2 questions...they may seem tricky to comprehend but are easy to manipulate...Quant section has a lot of sitters hidden between relatively ambiguous questions...Verbal is as usual moderate...

CAT Centre, Date and Slot: Jaipuria Insti of Management, Noida: 10 a.m (Pleasantly surprised to see 2 people from the same slot having posted before me)

1) How many attempts you have made?
OA: 54
QA:18
DI: 16
VA: 20

2) Your last mock score?
AIMCAT 1101 - 140, AIR 6

3) How was your experience of the test?
Okay-ish. Those guys were slow to get us into our labs. It could've been troublesome for someone not used to the interface.

4) What was the surprise element for you?
I was really surprised at the start of the paper 'cuz I'd expected a real easy one as everyone had been getting throughout the test days, but I didn't find our paper to be easy at all. 3-4 quant questions were really tricky, so much so that I still am not sure of the answers. One data sufficiency question was ambiguous. There were two possible answers, I think.

5) Any tips to handle the computer based exam better?
In case you don't have any experience of online exams, better get some soon cuz it'd really help. The interface is completely similar to the IMS interface; plus the highlighting, of course (really helped me in RCs) :)

6) Your overall analysis of the exam. Toughness, sections etc.
Umm.. QA - A little on the tougher side, I think. Some sitters, but some untouchables too :(
DI - Read the questions before the data, that's all I'd say. This one advice could save as much as 10 minutes in your paper. Attempt the easier ones (10-12 accurately) to clear the cut-off and come back to it if you have time.
VA - RCs were moderate. PCs ambiguous. Correct sentences irritating as no sentence had a full stop! Not really sure as to what's gonna happen here :banghead:

7) Any other query or something you would like to share with us.
Nothing really.

SURPRIESES ARE DISPERSED ALL AROUND THE TEST .. (I WOULD CALL THEM TRAPS)

READ THE QUESTION IN LR/DI BEFORE STARTING TO READ THE
MATTER OR INFORMATION GIVEN FOR IT .

nothing specific

5) Any tips to handle the computer based exam better?

Yes we have an option to highlight sentences in RC of VA , puys use it!

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

Though a relative question -

QA - One can easily manage 12-13 questions in say 45 mins of time with moderate prep ,
DI - My first section and was doable
VA - keep your cool , I have given more time for this section.

7) Any other query or something you would like to share with us.

Puys dont loose your cool at any moment during the exam.There are always some sitters and easy questions as well .Economize on time .Search for the questions in the areas you are most comfortable in (though it depends on one's level of prep)and are time savers as well say for example in Va - PJ's will take lesser time than RC's.If you are strong at both prefer to attempt PJs first, so that you save time and would be able to cater more time to your weaker areas.More over with time we can gain some momentum which helps us tackle tougher questions at a later stage.

All da best.

1) How many attempts you have made?
LDI - 19, VA - 19, QA - 20, OA - 58

2) Your last mock score?
Simcat 1-5 Scored 99.5 percentile plus in every test
3) How was your experience of the test?
Very nice.

4) What was the surprise element for you?
Nothing

5) Any tips to handle the computer based exam better?
Nothing special

6) Your overall analysis of the exam. Toughness, sections etc.
DI was easy but time consuming due to single question caselets. Lots of unnecessary data was given.
VA was a bit tricky. PJs were of good quality. RCs were also fine. Not too difficult, but not very easy peasy either.
QA had mixture of sitters and some toughies.
OA -I would say moderate,though it was easy for me would easily get about 52-56 correct out of 58 attempted
7) Any other query or something you would like to share with us.

Anything above 80/180 would fetch you a 95 percentile......

6) Your overall analysis of the exam. Toughness, sections etc.
It was easy to modearte. I found easy question were very easy and difficult (very few) almost bouncers(at least in QA).
Started with quants. Some questions in starting itself were difficult so just moved on to search for sitters and it actually paid. Last 8-10 question were easy and did them in 15 minutes. did 16 in total though not sure about 2. some 40minutes for quants.
Than VA. Had 3 find correct senteces(grammer),two homophones(easy) 1PJ,1 word usage and rest sentence completion. It was easier than aimcats. Three RC and the most difficult one had 4 questions:banghead:. however managed to get 3/4 and the did rest 2 RC in remaining time. Over all VA was easier tha last year( atleast I feel so).Finished with VA with an hour to spare.
DI had some easy LR,some moderate DI and some lengthy DI.Took some 30-35 mniutes to do 15 DI questions.Then moved to one set from LR which I could not solve even in 25 minutes:banghead::banghead::banghead:. Effectively did nothing in last 30 minutes:banghead:
