CMAT May, 2013 additional Test alert : Section wise analysis of previous paper

MBA aspirants, who are appearing in forthcoming CMAT additional test from   19th May to 22nd May 2013 must note following analysis of previous papers:  

 
QUANTITATIVE APTITUDE & DATA INTERPRETATION
 
•The overall level of difficulty of the questions in Quantitative Aptitude & Data Interpretation Section was easy to moderate. 
•The only unique feature of the section was that it had all single questions and no set based ones. 
•On an average, there were 2-3 questions in this section which were slightly tricky. 
•Questions based on Arithmetic (i.e. ratios, mixtures, work, averages, profit &loss, basic statistics etc.) dominated this section. 
•Other prominent topics tested in the paper included Number properties, Probability and Counting principles with an odd question in Geometry and Derivatives (i.e. Maxima –Minima). 
•Questions on Data Interpretation (Table and pie-chart) required very basic calculation skills.
 
LOGICAL REASONING
 
This section had a good mix of topics with only single questions.
Major topics covered included :
 
•Arrangements (i.e. Linear, Seating, Sequencing, and Arranging with Conditions)
•Coding
•Statement-Conclusion
•Logical Puzzle
•Numerical Puzzle
•Venn diagram
•True/False statements
•Visual Reasoning etc. 
 
This section also included verbal reasoning questions based on Syllogisms and Critical reasoning. The level of difficulty of this section was overall on the easier side.
 
LANGUAGE COMPREHENSION
 
•The Verbal section was a cakewalk with no lengthy RC passages and no difficult word based questions. 
•Instead of full length RCs, there were short passages of two or three lines, each followed by a single question.
•Most of these questions were word or phrase based.
•Grammar based questions tested simple concepts, 
•The vocabulary based questions were also easy for any student. 
•There were critical reasoning questions but they tested simple logic and could be tackled by any student with average reasoning ability as well. 
•There were also word based questions like synonyms and meaning of idiomatic expression. 
•Fill in the blank questions were also presented in various formats.
 
GENERAL AWARENESS
 
•The General Awareness section was the tricky section for a lot of students, and also 
•Also, probably the game-changer as all the questions in the section was doable for students updated on the recent happenings in India and worldwide. 
•Most of the questions were on current affairs, science, biology, political history, political geography and arts and letters.
