Overall Analysis

CAT 2017 Slot 1:

  • CAT 2017 Slot 1 was slightly easier than the last year CAT 2016
  • Leaving out any time-consuming questions and maximizing the number of attempts would be the key to scoring high in this slot.
  • The absence of difficulty level questions in Quantitative Aptitude and the increase in arithmetic questions expects more higher level of attempts in the slot 1.
  • Non-engineers to benefit from low level of difficulty in Quantitative aptitude and engineers to benefit from moderate level difficulty in Verbal Ability.
  • The sets in Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning section were intimidating at the first glance, this section being the toughest of all sections.
  • It was difficult to classify the sets into Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning separately which led to time-consuming solutions.
  • The cut-off is expected to go up from last year CAT 2016.
  • Some technical glitches were faced by the candidates in slot one. At some centres, the server was down.

CAT 2017 Slot 2:

  • CAT 2017 Slot 2 was easier than the slot 1. The level of difficulty remained almost same but the slot 2 paper was comparatively easier than the slot 1 paper.
  • Data Interpretation and Logical reasoning section remained time-consuming and lengthy as slot 1 paper. The cut-off for this section is expected to be higher than in the slot 1.
  • Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension section was based on the basic understanding of the candidate.
  • Overall, there was not much difference in the slot 1 and slot 2 papers. Both were moderately difficult; DI/LR section being the toughest of all sections.
  • The cut-off in the slot 2 is expected to go up.
  • There were no technical glitches in the slot 2.
