CAT 2016 Analysis, Discussion And Cutoffs – Live Updates

5th December – 3 :00 pm –

Actual Data of 200 responses received by Team InsideIIM so far of  students who wrote CAT in Slot 1 on 4th Dec, 2016.

CAT 2016 Avg Total Attempted Avg Correct Expected
VA/RC 26 20
DI/LR 14 11
Quant 17 14
Total 56.965 44.545

 

Please note that the average user of InsideIIM scores a higher percentile and hence the data is skewed since it talks about better performing students. Also, students who do badly at the test do not normally bother sharing data or filling up forms. With respect to correct expected figure, most students over estimate their own ability.

3:17 pm – If one were to compare the difficulty level of CAT 2016 over the last year’s paper, then CAT 2016 would be a shade more difficult (especially the VARC and the Quant section) than the difficulty level of the CAT 2015 paper!

1 : 50 pm – Based on 65 Responses to the form below the current analysis is as follows

CAT 2016 Avg TA Avg Correct Expected Avg Score
VA/RC 26 20 54
DI/LR 14 11 31
Quant 16 13 37
Total 57 45 123

Please note Avg Correct Expected is what the student thinks his/her accuracy level is – it is not an exact measure. In our experience, most students over estimate their abilities and hence you should keep that in mind while analysing the above data. For simplicity we have given negative 1 for all non-MCQs as well in the above data.

1 : 10 pm – Total attempts will go down. Cutoffs will go down. If someone has attempted close to 80 questions overall with good accuracy you are definitely through!

12 : 45 pm – First impressions from our expert ARKS Srinivas. No change in the pattern. Paper MORE DIFFICULT than last year.

12 : 20 pm – All those who write the test in Slot 1 are requested to fill up this form below so that we can help you with more accurate analysis and percentiles. First cutoffs will be out by 3 pm based on data given below
