CAT 2016 Analysis:
Slot 1: CAT2016 Slot-1 test takers were a relieved a lot, as the exam was on expected lines with no major surprises. The IIMs have stuck to the same pattern as the one seen in 2015 both in terms of the number of questions in each section and in terms of the difficulty level of the sections.
Slot 2: CAT2016 Slot-2 was very much like the Slot-1 exam in terms of the number of questions and the difficulty level of the sections. However, some students reported problems in some mathematical symbols not being displayed correctly in the test which led to loss of time. Significantly, this issue seems to have impacted a few test takers in the forenoon slot as well.
