CAT 2014:analysis

 CAT 2014 new pattern of test will have 100 as compared to 60 questions in 2 sections in past CAT years. 20 questions have been added in each of the two sections of test. Duration of the CAT 2014 has also been increased to 170 minutes from 140 minutes earlier. Now CAT 2014 new pattern will have a total of 50 questions for Verbal Ability section and another 50 for Quant section.

Verbal Ability in CAT 2014 has new pattern

However, the available information about the CAT 2014 new exam pattern is that it will have same 2 sections with no restriction to move from one section to another within the total frame of 170 minutes. CAT 2014 site has the icon to apprise about CAT 2014 new Exam pattern & Duration but all the ingredients are not yet shared.

More questions on Error corrections
CAT 2014 new exam pattern is expected to have 4 different types of questions along with the questions on error corrections in sentences and paragraphs. CAT 2014 new exam pattern may place questions on single sentences divided in parts. Such questions were not asked in CAT during the past many years but they form an important type of questions on error correction.

Twisted type of Vocabulary based questions
More questions on vocabulary usage are expected in CAT 2014 new exam pattern. Questions based on synonyms usage to fill in the blanks, instead of picking the incorrect usage of common vocabulary words, collocations, phrasal verbs questions could be framed to find the correct usage.

More and different questions on PJ
Aspirants may find around 4-5 jumbled paragraphs which may include questions like ‘choose the opening and concluding sentence of a jumbled paragraph’ in the CAT 2014 new exam pattern.

More and different questions on RC
RC has so far occupied half of the Verbal Ability part with 10 questions. CAT 2014 new exam pattern is expected to have 15-16 questions based on Reading comprehension passages assuming that ratio remains more or less same.

There could be more number of RC passages with similar number of questions based on them as have appeared in CAT 2012 & 2013. On a different note, the passages might have an increased length with more number of questions in CAT 2014 new exam pattern.

Time management is the key
The changes in CAT 2014 exam pattern are aspirant friendly. Aspirants have liberty to move from one section to other without any restriction. But again scanning the entire test paper with no target is not good.

CAT 2014 new pattern has increased the overall time limit from 140 minutes to 170 minutes but average available time per question has been reduced from 2.32 to 1.70 minutes per question.
