CAT Exam

 

The Indian Institutes of Management will conduct a computer-based Common Admission Test 2024 (CAT 2024) on November in three sessions. Detailed information on CAT 2024 may be obtained from the CAT website. CAT 2024 is a prerequisite for admission to various Post Graduate and Fellow/Doctorate programmes of IIMs. CAT 2024 scores are allowed to be used by listed non-IIM member institutions. A list of such institutions is provided on the CAT website. IIMs have no role in the selection process of non-IIM institutions.

 

CAT 2024 Syllabus

The Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension (VARC) section of the CAT exam has three parts: Vocabulary, Grammar, and Reading Comprehension.

Questions focused on vocabulary consist of Synonyms, Antonyms, Analogies, Spellings, Odd Words, Words Often Confused, Sentence Completion, and Cloze Tests. You need a combination of vocabulary knowledge, reading proficiency, and critical thinking abilities to answer these problems.

Understanding the situations in which a word can be used is a crucial component of vocabulary knowledge. It will become simple as you begin to comprehend a word’s usage in its context.

Try to comprehend a word’s etymology by learning its root meanings. One can grasp words like eloquent, loquacious, soliloquy, ventriloquize, circumlocution, grandiloquent, etc. by understanding the meaning of Latin roots like “loqui.” When you combine your knowledge of roots with the definitions of various prefixes and suffixes then you can say that you have a strong command of vocabulary.

Syllabus for the Quantitative Ability section 

CAT will be administered online, most likely at the end of November. These three things are the main part of QA : numerical ability, mathematical skills, and problem-solving skills. They are intended to be tested in the CAT quantitative ability portion. Most MBA admission exams include a subject on quantitative aptitude or competence. The CAT’s quantitative ability part typically contains questions that have elementary mathematics.

Arithmetic, Algebra, Advanced Mathematics, and Geometry are all included in the CAT’s Quantitative Aptitude component, which accounts for one-third of the test’s questions.

Being thorough with each and every chapter is the only way to earn high marks in this part. Recall the basics and theories. Take on the QA section of the CAT by attempting a range of example questions. Calculations may be necessary for this section. Use your brain to calculate; it will take less time than a calculator.

So, choosing the proper approach is crucial when working on your CAT DILR preparation.

The second component of the CAT exam, Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR), must be completed following the VARC test.
