CAT Syllabus 2022

Exam counselling

The CAT Syllabus will consist of 3 topics, i.e Quantitative Aptitude, Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension and Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning. Aspirants must be completely familiar with the CAT quantitative aptitude syllabus, which is based on the previous year's question papers. As the CAT exam does not have a specified syllabus, many applicants struggle and become confused during their CAT Quant test preparation. 

However, it should be emphasised that the questions are usually based on a few themes that are asked every year. As a result, candidates are advised to review the previous year's question trends, familiarise themselves with relevant knowledge, and prepare accordingly. Based on the past year's question paper research, some of the topics are predicted to reappear in CAT 2022.

CAT 2022 Preparation Tips

Exam talks

For IIM aspirants, CAT is one of the most difficult exams. The CAT exam is challenging for students to pass. However, if you plan a proper strategy and timetable for this exam, you will undoubtedly succeed in passing it. We've provided some exam preparation ideas for you here.

  1. Organising your time - It is one of the most crucial aspects of exam preparation. Students must adhere to a strict preparation and study plan. This will assist pupils in passing the examination. The CAT is an aptitude test in which pupils must have conceptual clarity and know-how to solve problems using quick approaches.
  2. Question papers from previous years - Students must prepare from the previous year's question papers in addition to learning from books. Students can learn more about the difficulty level, types of questions, and other details by consulting prior year question papers. You'll also be aware of your areas of strength and weakness.
  3. Mock exam for practice - To pass the CAT exam, you'll need to have a lot of logical thinking, which you can acquire by taking practice tests. You can also manage your time for each segment with the help of simulated tests.
  4. Recognise syllabus and exam pattern - Before beginning their studies, candidates should familiarise themselves with the CAT test format and syllabus. The CAT exam is divided into sections, and candidates must manage their time according to the complexity of each section. To begin their preparations, students must obtain all relevant information about the CAT's official syllabus.
  5. Books and study aids - Students would be perplexed by the extensive CAT syllabus if they do not have access to CAT books and study materials. Good books and study materials are essential for improved preparation. Students can also use previous year's question papers to familiarise themselves with the exam format, types of questions, and scoring system.
  6. Maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid stress - It is critical to have a healthy mind and body in order to concentrate better during exam preparation. Maintain a nutritious diet that includes fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid eating junk food and drinking alcoholic beverages. Practice yoga and meditation to improve your concentration while studying for your exams.
  7. Revision - Because of the long syllabus, the candidate will not have enough time to revise. Candidates will forget to review essential topics due to a shortage of time. Candidates must attempt to revise the entire syllabus and crucial topics three to four days before the examination. Students should set aside at least one week for revision of topics they have already studied.
  8. Performance analysis - Analysing yourself will offer you a clear picture of where you stand and will also assist you in identifying your weak areas. You'll have a clear image of where you need to focus your extra work once you've identified these weaker areas.

CAT Exam Taking Strategy 2022

  • Spend a few moments thinking about the question. A quick explanation of why any option is correct or incorrect might cross your mind. You can do well on the actual examination if you are willing to practice this tip on sample logical thinking questions.
  • Do not make any assumptions or use any information that is not provided by the question. This isn't a test to see how much you know about a subject in general. When choosing between the different responses to each reading passage, consider only the information provided.
  • Read the factual paragraph and the sentence completion instruction carefully. When making your decision, you must consider both factors.
  • Before eliminating or selecting one of the solution alternatives, make sure to read all of them thoroughly.
  • When answering questions that need you to choose a legitimate conclusion, always go with the one that is most likely to follow from the information provided. Select the one conclusion that clearly does not suit the information supplied to you in questions that ask you to determine the erroneous choice.
  • When reading the factual facts provided by each question, pay special attention to words like "all," "none," and "some." Other phrases to consider are "other than," "only," and "until." These terms will be crucial in determining which facts will be used in your reasoning.
  • Negative prefixes such as non—, un-, and dis- should be avoided. These could be crucial in outlining the paragraph's main points.
  • Any answer choices using the quantifiers "all" or "zero" should be avoided at all costs. In general, these terms in the sample practice questions and the genuine CAT evaluation do not indicate erroneous response selections. They'll show up in both correct and bad response choices.
  • Keep an eye out for the word "only" and the phrase "if and only if."

About Exam

The CAT Result 2022 will be released a few days after the examination. To download the CAT Scorecard for 20 IIMs, 7 IITs, and other non-IIM institutes, candidates must visit the official CAT website.

Important Points from CAT Result

Candidates must read the following critical instructions from IIMs regarding the declaration of CAT results and the download of scorecards:

  • The CAT 2021 scorecard is only available online on the official website and will not be mailed. However, to download the CAT scorecard, an SMS will be issued to the candidate's registered mobile number.
  • The candidates' overall and sectoral scaled scores will be included in the CAT results. It's important to remember that the total scaled score is based on the candidates' overall raw scores, not the sum of the scaled scores from the VARC, DILR, and QA parts.
  • CAT scores will be valid until December 31, 2022, and candidates can apply to MBA programmes that accept CAT scores as long as they meet the other minimum requirements.
  • The issuance of a CAT scorecard does not ensure acceptance into MBA programmes. IIMs and non-IIMs both publish their own cut-offs and follow their own admissions procedures for MBA/PGDM programmes.

CAT Cut-off 2022

Eligibility Criteria

In the CAT, a score of more than 100 is required to achieve the 99 percentile. The specific marks earned in each segment vary depending on the exam's difficulty level. To achieve a total score of more than 100, one must obtain at least 35 points in VARC, 30 points in LRDI, and 37 points in QA. If a candidate achieves a score of more than 99 percentile on the CAT exam, he or she may be contacted by:

  • IIM Ahmedabad - An 80+ percentile in 10th, 12th, and bachelor's is a good CAT score to obtain a call.
  • IIM Bangalore - Candidates must have an 80+ percentage in their 10th, 12th, and graduation years in addition to a good CAT score of 99.5+. 
  • IIM Calcutta - Candidates must earn a score of 99.5+ and 80+ in their 10th and 12th grades, they can get a call from IIM Calcutta.

Previous Year Cut-off

The CAT 2021 Cut-off has been announced by IIMs to help screen candidates for the admission process (GD and PI). The following table shows the CAT 2021 cut-off for general category candidates:

IIMs QA Percentile DILR Percentile VARC Percentile Overall Percentile
IIM Ahmedabad 70 70 70 80
IIM Bangalore 75 75 80 85
IIM Calcutta 75 80 80 85
IIM Kozhikode 75 75 75 85
IIM Shillong 75 75 75 --

Every CAT aspirant keeps an eye on the CAT cut-offs for all of the leading B-Schools so that they know what they're aiming for. The CAT cut-off is the first stage that an applicant must pass before being considered for future procedures. While the actual CAT cut-off is far higher than the CAT cut-off set by the institutions, these CAT cut-offs must be considered so that the applicant has a realistic goal to strive for.

The following are the overall tendencies for top B-Schools:

  • To be considered for the interview rounds at the top IIMs and universities like FMS and ISB Hyderabad, candidates must have a CAT score of over 99 percentile.
  • For an interview call, new IIMs such as IIM Udaipur, IIM Trichy, and others have a CAT Cut Off of 90-95 percentile.
  • Baby IIMs have comparable CAT Cut Offs to the New IIMs, although some can go as low as the 85th percentile for the suitable individual.
  • CAT Scores and CAT Cut Offs for Tier 2 and Tier 3 colleges might range from the 50th to the 80th percentile.

Cut-offs for IIMs in CAT

For candidates from the general category, the CAT Cut Offs for IIMs are exceptionally high. The CAT cut-offs for major IIMs, according to recent trends, are: 

  • IIM Ahmedabad - 99 percentile 
  • IIM Bangalore - 99 percentile 
  • IIM Calcutta - 99 percentile

The CAT cut-offs for the top three IIMs are, as expected, extraordinarily high. IIM Ahmedabad, on the other hand, provides opportunities to candidates with a variety of backgrounds. As a result, candidates with a Bachelor of Arts degree may receive a call from IIM Ahmedabad even if their percentiles are significantly lower. For the remaining old IIMs:

  • IIM Lucknow will take in the 97-98 percentile
  • IIM Kozhikode will take in the 97-98 percentile and 
  • IIM Indore will take in the 97-98 percentile.

These IIMs must lower their CAT cut-offs in order to recruit students who are not eligible for admission to the top three IIMs. The IIMs are able to recruit a broader set of candidates by lowering the cut-off.

For new IIMs:

  • IIM Shillong has a 95%
  • IIM Udaipur has a 95%
  • IIM Ranchi has a 95%
  • IIM Raipur has a 95%
  • IIM Rohtak has a 95%
  • IIM Trichy has a 95%
  • IIM Kashipur has a 95%
  • IIM Sirmaur has a 95%
  • IIM Bodh Gaya has 90-95%
