The Common Admission Test 2021 papers were a tolerable set of papers. After hitting critical high notes in the 2020 exam, it seems authorities played it safe this year.
The reviews from all quarters seems to indicate that the paper was mostly moderate with a slight dose of difficulty. That questions were reduced to 66 added to the pleasant experience in the exams. Thankfully, once the first sot saw the reduction in questions, other exam takers knew it would work in sync for them too.
VARC had 24 questions with a time limit of 40 minutes, DILR was 20 questions in the same time frame and QA was 22 questions in 40 minutes.
In all, QA was slightly difficult for many while VARC was considered moderately difficult and DILR was easiest of all three sections.
While most coaching centres have posted score calculators, it is best that candidates wait for the official release of the answer keys to check the same. This should happen sometime in December
More than 2 lakh candidates took CAT today (November 28)
