CAT 2016 – First cut Analysis ( Powered by CATKing )
CAT 2016 has seen the highest number of registrations in the past 7 years. With a happy sign : number of female candidates rising up as compared to the last year.
Talking about the first cut analysis from the Morning Slot of CAT 2016, the paper did not surprise a lot. The exam pattern remained same as CAT 2015 and the official mock on the website; however the marking scheme saw a small twist. 1 Mark for the correct answers as compared to the always 3 marks per correct answer. Negative marking existed for the MCQ questions; 1/3rd ie 0.33 negative marks. TITA Questions didn’t have any negative marking similar to the CAT 2015.
