Ok it has been a long time ....since I gave my exam.......... and all those whose CAT is left

best of luck ..

Well my day had an easier quant relatively questions u can easily do , no hard stuff so I attempted 28 .. hoping 24 would be ryt

Den started the english section , well it was not simple but in english u never knoe whether u are doing ryt r wrong .So I attempted LR frst of all , finished it in 20 mins .. and kept on doing para nd grammer for next 10 mins . I moved to the comprehension which was fairly easy leaving one . At the end of 55 mins I had attempted 27 questions ,

I had always got a very meagre percentile in engish , so I decided to be extra careful ,revised all my LR in the next 10 mins ( found two mistakes ) unattempted all the questions in which i felt even a little doubt and there I was left with 22 questions .Before I could do anything the timer ended the test ..!! But overall experience was ok types .. I did well i guess ..
Lets see
P.s - I had the same feeling I had after IIT-JEE 4 years ago after giving the exam .Would be posting a link for my blog soon here . All those whose CAT is still left feel free to call me discuss with me strategies or watever that is u want to ..

Cheers 😃 :)

@assassinx which di set u found confusing.....was it the one related to stock markets and commodities where several blocks were filled with a "-" rather than "none" .......i found it very confusing bcoz i were not sure whether we have to first find out the empty blocks or they represents none in general........i did it assuming it was zero or none and i found ans in exact figures as available in the ans option........but still i m confused bcoz they have started putting wrong qs also..................pls respond .....thanks in adv.

i attempted 24/29.......

really got panicky in 1st section after about 35mins wen i realised i was on question 13 with 3-4 already bookmarked ( so that leaves me with onli 8-9 attempts in first half of section 1)....... after that it was just a simple policy.....if its in my comfort area, then do it....or else leave it....... went on to do all the DIs and found a few sitters in quant too mostly post Q 20....... breeazed thru in the second half to manage 24attempts, but still feel i could have had 2-3 attempts more had i managed my time properly in the first half...... i left 3-4 questions without even digging deep to realise whether i could actually do them or not just coz they were not in my comfort area......neways i made a mistake in 1 and unsure about 2-3 more.......


2nd section......LR saved the day.....20-25mins mein all 3sets with most likely is all correct...... one RC was easy.....one extremely incomprehensible...... one of moderate difficulty but close options........ PJs/ PCs confused me to some extent as i couldnt choose between two options in most cases...... so its a 50-50 there...... and i hate this part coz normally PJs/PCs are my strength........ simple grammer and WU, which i thot could be solved just by our normal intuitive vocab without really goin deep into the rules and all...... unless i made some blunders that is......


i think it was a moderate paper across both the sections......yes a lot of speed breakers but not getting panicky and question selection was the key imo.......


neways...... expecting 20-22/ 24 in sec 1......
and 20-22/ 29 in sec 2...... lets hope for the best tho :)

I remember this 20L and 30L question, which i left
Later i thought either i missed something or they missed something.
