CAT 2020 Analysis Slot 2 by Endavour Careers –CAT 2020 Slot 2 continued the good note CAT had begun this morning with the first slot. Once again, students’ anxieties and anticipations of the expected format and pandemic arrangements were addressed positively. The arrangements and transitions to Slot 2 were smooth.

The time limit for each sectional was 40 mins. The total duration was 2 hours. A candidate could not move from one section to the next during the time allotted for the sectional.

VARC Sectional:

Once again, VARC sectional continued to trouble students. With 18 questions spread across 4 RCs, this section provided some challenge to the candidates, with speculation that they were slightly more difficult than the RCs of Slot 1. The RCs were around 450 to 550 words in length, with 2 RCs carrying 5 questions each and 2 RCs carrying 4 questions each. Like Slot 1, the density of language and the closeness of options required students to spend more time reading them and regressing to get the answers. The RC topics were energy and environment – investing in renewable energy technologies, international trade – piracy in international trade, psychology – Freudian models of aggression, and philosophy –a study of visualization. The questions ranged from inferences, main idea questions, except questions, strengthen, to parallel reasoning.

The VA section had 8 questions, 3 summaries of around 100 words each -slightly more difficult than those of Slot 1, 3 parajumbles with 4 sentences each, and 2 Out of Context with 5 sentences each. This sub-section was easier in comparison and had 5 non-negative key-in questions.
