@rocky.miami hi... i got the exact same two mails from them in reply to my mail. In addition I highly doubt if they would do anything about it. Its very unfortunate how we can not do much as we dont have any physical evidence of the incorrect question and they can get away with it.

@mercapto hi did you lodge a complaint with the cat candidate care people? If so did you get any response? Even i got an entire data set in my LR section where the data and 4 questions of that set did not have any correlation but seems like your question and my question were different. On contacting the cat candidate care people they said that i should send them a mail at cat.candidateservices @ prometric.com , they did give a response but doesn't seem like they'll do anything about it.

@allan89 Can you please tell me what the incorrect LR question in your set was on as there are clearly two data sets that had a problem. In addition did you lodge any complaint with the cat candidate care people?

@elude2 hi also had an incorrect LR question set ..... the question data had a relationship question and the 4 questions following it were on finding the number of friends of the same age.... and the varibles were also different( in the question data variables were p,k,l and in the questions they were a,b,c). did you also get this set?

Hi Puys, Gave the exam today, can't do well. Lil bit embarrassed to tell my attempt range. So I will try to give you the overview of the paper. QA section appeared tough to me, out of three sets in DI one set was from Venn diagrams which unfortunately was the topic left by me. I got around three to five problems from Geometry. Time and distance (if i remember correctly), Mixtures,
Time and work, progressions, P&C; played their role with atleast single question. Numbers also appeared most of the times in the paper. Overall, according to me I will rate this quant paper to from moderately tough to tough.

Verbal, which I believed was my stronger area also didn't give me a chance. RCs are the worst. I spent around half an hour and couldn't answer most of them. There were questions like tone of the passage and one particular question took me by surprise. It goes like this "If you have a chance to interview the author of the passage, what could your question be?". Even Verbal and LR section didnot give me chance.

This is not to scare you guys. Beware of the topics and don't miss any topic. All the best!
