CAT 2019 PAPER ANALYSIS

By first hand experience of Bfactory CAT 19 takers

Hello CAT takers!

Overall the paper was pretty similar to last year CAT paper. Let me share section wise experience.

Verbal Ability: Moderate

1 RC was tough in reading. 1 was moderate. 3 were easy.

Reading: A feeling of old time CAT reading slightly came back in this paper. Society, technology and environment topics were there similar to last 3 years.

Overall question wise, the level was slightly higher than previous 2 year CAT papers.

VR was easy. Para Summary – moderate, Para Jumbles and Odd one out -easy.

All in all – paper was slightly higher in level of difficulty when compared to CAT 18.

Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning: Moderate to Difficult

DI LR was still the toughest section among the three sections. However it was slightly easier than CAT 2018. There were 2 easy sets which if selected would give an edge to CAT takers. 1 easy matrix based from LR and 1 direct DI based. But still it takes time to solve extra sets. Score will go slightly up in this section.

Topics: Graph based set was there, group/team formation, puzzle type and matrix based were there.

Quantitative Ability: Easy to Moderate

Arithmetic was easier than last time. Questions based on previous year CAT papers were there – typical race question, typical number of steps to reach type questions were there. Indices and log were doable. Still not all questions were easy to hit. Overall moderate.

Major topics: Arithmetic – TSD,T&W, Mixing, Commercial maths, Log, Indices, Number system, Geometry, area, axis based, function.
