NEW DELHI: IIM Lucknow is all set to conduct CAT 2023 on November 26. The CAT exam paper will be divided into 3 sections- Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension (VARC), Data Interpretation and logical Reasoning (DILR), and Quantitative Ability (QA). The DILR section of the CAT exam assesses the ability of the candidates to analyze data, make informed decisions and solve complex problems.
Like last year, CAT DILR section is likely to have 20 questions and candidates are suggested to accurately answer around 13-14 questions to qualify sectional CAT cut-off. Candidates will be given 40 minutes to attempt these questions. With proper preparation and exam-day strategy, candidates can ace this section in the exam.
Learn not to cram
CAT DILR section does not assess cramming abilities but focuses on examining critical thinking. It becomes very important to understand the principle behind the question to solve different types of questions.
Practise CAT previous year questions
Previous year CAT papers develop the insight of the type of questions that are asked in the exam and structure of the exam. In the DI part, questions related to line,bar graphs and pie charts are oftenly asked whereas, in LR, questions are asked related to blood relations, family tree and arrangements etc.
