    For case study based questions, follow the 5 step approach:

    1. Reading the Case study
    2. Reading the Question
    3. Analysing the Options
    4. Eliminating Options
    5. Verifying your answer

    Dont get personal in the case study..lokk for a solution which satisfies all requirements and is not too extreme

    There are 3 sections, viz. English, Reasoning and Quantitative Ability and General Awareness. The English section usually has 80 qns while the other 2 sections have 60 qns each... In the last 20 minutes, you are expected to write a 250-300 word essay with topics ranging from those of social relevance to propositions to abstract. For every correct ans u get 1 mark and for every incorrect qn, there is a negative marking of 1/3 mark.
    HI Princess...Please refer last Year's paper for latest updates in the Number of question in Each section...They were as below:

    QA:38
    EU:35
    Reasoning & Decision Making:31.

    Reasons for eliminating Options:

    1.Unclear in their meaning (ambiguous)
    2. severe by nature (too much extreme)
    3. Similar to each other ( same solution worded in a different manner)
    4. complacent by nature ( maintaining the status quo)
    5. beyond the scope of the question
    6. isolated from the question and trying to divert your attention somewhere else


    if you are down to 2 options , one of which is idealistic and second is practical, the idealistic scenario is right most of the times

    I have a doubt....

    Do they consider sub-sectional cutoffs while evaluation ?? I mean in the Quant & DI section would there be separate cutoffs for both. Same goes for the LR & DM section ??

    Ya I thought so too but you know as it is with the Verbal section of CAT where you have to score something in the RCs otherwise the chances of your getting a call go down, so just wanted to confirm.

    in CAT major chunk of marks is in the RC, so u have to do them...here also if u are getting cutoff marks by just doing verbal i think it is good enough
