Common Admission Test (CAT) is a computer-based entrance examination for admissions into the IIMs and other MBA colleges in India.

IIM Ahmedabad will be conducting CAT exam (in three slots) in 159 cities covering 400 test centers.

The examination consists of three sections, i.e., Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension, Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning and Quantitative Ability. In comparison to last year


a.) Quantitative Ability: The important areas for this section are arithmetic, algebra, and geometry. It is crucial to take sectional tests and solve at least the last four years' question papers.

b.) Logical Reasoning & Data Interpretation (LRDI): Take some time out every day to solve 2-3 types of sets from this section. If you are consistent with it, you can solve close to 80-100 LRDI sets in the final few days before the exam.

c.) Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension: Important areas that should be focused on by the candidates in this section are reading comprehension, para summary and para jumbles.
