    Which is tougher in terms of english comprehension: CAT or GMAT?

    Hi Sunny, The Quantitative Ability section in CAT is quite a bit tougher than the Quantitative section in the GMAT exam. ... The Verbal section has approximately the same time per question but the number of Reading Comprehension passages are lower for GMAT than for CAT.

    I am from an engineering background. Is it true that in the name of diversity, IIMs are preferring non-engineers?

    Hi Vikram, Yes, IIMs do prefer diversity but it doesn’t mean that they prefer non- engineers. The selection process is completely unbiased and is completely on the basis of a candidate’s profile.

    Can we switch between the sections during the CAT exam?

    Hi Suraj, CAT has a sectional time limit, which means each section needs to be completed in 60 minutes. Due to sectional time limit candidates cannot switch to the other section.

    If the number of test-takers reduces due to the pandemic, how will that effect the cut-off?

    Hi Karan, if the number of candidates appearing for the examination are less, there is a chance that the cut-off might be less as compared to the previous years for the CAT exam.

    Due to this corona pandemic, are there any changes in the expected cut-off of the colleges?

    Hi Mansi, the cut-offs for various colleges will be released once the results for the CAT exam are declared. Hence, there is no concrete information that suggests if the cut-offs will be high or low for this session.
