Chandigarh, November 29

About 6,000 students appeared for the Common Admission Test (CAT) across 12 centres from the tricity. Due to the Covid scenario this year, the exam was conducted in three slots and its duration was reduced from three to two hours.

According to Hirdesh Madan, Co-Founder, Bulls Eye: “Though the number of applications for the test was similar to the last year, quite a few centres in the tricity reported poor attendance. This may actually mean an increase in the CAT applications next year as quite a few students may have deferred their plan”.

Madan said: “This year, students were bit confused regarding the pattern as the duration of the test was reduced by an hour, but there was no clear indication on the number of questions.”

Dhananjay Deswal, who is doing his engineering from the CTET, said: “CAT 2020 was moderately difficult this year. Verbal ability reading comprehension was on the tougher side and it consisted of tricky questions. Selection of questions played a major role in the data interpretation and logical reasoning section. Quantitative aptitude was easier, but lengthy.”

Bhavit Singla, who is pursuing B.Com from GGDSD College, Sector 32, Chandigarh, said: “I found the verbal section to be most difficult. Reasoning was tricky and maths was easy but lengthy. The paper was on the predicted lines”.

The result is expected to be declared in the second week of January. In the second phase, after the results of the written test are declared, students go through essay and interview stage for the final selection.
