CAT 2012 Exam Alert: Arithmetic is the essence of QA section

Calender Icon CAT Registration Ends: 13th September 2023

Arithmetic is the essence of QA  section
Aspirants should  note that 15-20% of questions in any CAT paper comprise of Arithmetic in QA. 
 
Major topics that you need to cover are Set Theory (especially Venn diagrams) and problems on Time, Speed and Distance, both of which are always asked. Both of these topics are covered as part of the school syllabus, but may need some brushing up on. Sometimes, questions on topics such as Linear Programming are also asked.
 
Miscellaneous problems are rarely asked, and even when they do appear in a CAT paper they do not number more than one or two. They are purely tests of mathematical aptitude, and you cannot learn how to solve them. The advice, for dealing with these problems, is to try back-substitution of answer choices, or to avoid these problems altogether.
 
Some Useful tips for Quant Preparation can be:
 
•Practice the new online format adequately
•Identify sitters in the exam first
•Avoid making random guesses
•Put maximum emphasis on accuracy
