Yes Ims simcat are very close to the level of difficulty of cat itself and give a good overview of the exam. Moreover aimcat are renown for their difficulty level so.

Hi Vinayak Please advise that whether I should take Qa as second section to attaempt as its my weakest section Vinayak: Be prepared to attempt the sections in any order, if the need be. As QA is your weakest section, try to attempt it when your mind is on high alert. Your guess is as good as mine. CAT keeps changing and you need to be prepared for any eventuality. However, I would place my bets on 90 to 20 questions and a mark paper.

Do not worry too much about this problem. Focus on the main test tomorrow zimcats I am sure you will clear all the three cut-offs. Hi Amit, you can anyways not aim for a particular percentile. So take the CAT with an aim to maximise your score in each of the sections.


In general, a 92 percentile section-wise and 98 percentile overall should fetch you calls from the IIMs. Imagine I get 10 marks in first 30 mins of Quants and then am not finding questions to solve so to hit a cutoff of 15 what should be the strategy?

Do not get into the test centre with such a mindset. Even if you do get into such a situation, do not lose your calm, and stay focused. Read the questions from your areas of strength, more importantly understand what you are required to ima to solve the question. I am sure you will find questions that you can solve correctly.


Hi, you have a very good chance of making it to the IIMs. Relax, stay focused and all the best for tomorrow. Which r the colleges that do not go for sectional cut-offs?? Most of the good B-Schools have some sort of sectional cut-off which changes year to year. Im asking for so many times but u didn’t replied Vinayak: About simcata for the IIMs and about percentile for the rest of the good schools should be a safe bet based on last year’s data.

Am strong in verbal Vinayak: Have you used this start before? Else you can stick to the KISS strategy: Believe in yourself and take the CAT. You will definitely get a call. Relax, watch a movie, chill. Wish you the best. Sir, i’m a second yr engg student from iit,i am to start cat preps, what r the pre-requirements to be able to sit for cat?

The minimum criteria is 50 per cent in graduation. My expectations do not really matter. I believe the IIM wants to be more transparent in the selection process and hence it has stated the minimum cut-offs.

No particular reason that I can think of for the others not mentioning the min cut off. In take home tests, you score better largely due to the fact that you are under less pressure. The good news is that this is the same for almost all who take the CAT. If you have carefully analysed the papers, there would be not much of a difference between the simCATs and the take home tests.

What else colleges I can apply keeping in mind I belong to SC category? Your selection of college should only be dependent on the fact that the B-School you apply should provide you value that you seek. Therefore, leave all other criteria aside and focus on the top B-Schools only. But the point is that expectations do not really matter. Irrespective of test structure of the test tomorrow, you have to focus on doing well.

If you have prepared well, you are prepared for any structure. One more point, there is a fundamental flaw in your question because you are already assuming a difficulty level of tomorrows test.

At the end of the day it is a relative performance that matters. Therefore, whether the test is difficult or easy is not going to matter at all. Ajit, the day before my marriage I was really scared too. I think this a natural feeling.


So don’t worry and enjoy the CAT. Secondly, remember that CAT is not a test of your success factor in your career. It is just an aptitude simmcats. Be positive and give it your best shot. I will not give you the answer because I want you to make it to the IIM! Gagan, just go and try to score to the best of your ability in each jms the sections. Have faith; you will clear the Quant cut off for tomorrow for the IIMs.

All you need to do is to ximcats all the questions that you CAN solve. It will be more than enough. Vinod, if you can do that in 40 minutes, it is a great performance. Sure, move on to the next section and try to repeat the same performance!

Wish you the best man! Let the IIM worry about this question. As far as you and me are concerned we will focus on doing the best we can on the D-day tomorrow. Is it true that in one RC passage there is atleast one-two damn easy questions hence we should attempt all RC passages?: There is no fixed rule.

Also, one question that is easy for you may be difficult for me. The basic rule is NOT to get stuck in a question. If it means you ending up solving all the RC passage, so be it.

The instruction sheet in fact asks you to do so just to check whether all the pages are printed properly. So it is a good idea. Past data indicates that this is difficult to achieve: However, if a student clears all cutoffs and has scored below someone who hasn’t cleared the cutoff, he will get the call even if the second person has better overall percentile.

Try the KISS theory.
