How the CAT verbal section tests the manager in you?

CAT is a very well rounded test, which tests the necessary skill sets from a Manager's point of view. For instance, the Sentence Correction questions tests the ability of a candidate to understand complex structures with an eye for detail. Questions on Reading Comprehension tests the ability to compress the information without changing the overall meaning. Similarly questions on Critical Reasoning and Verbal Logic delves deep into the ability to look at the logic and reasoning behind any logical system. The idea of all these sections in CAT is to ensure that a candidate is tested on all traits of being a Manager.

Why is RC such a major component of the CAT exam?

ReplyFeb 07, 2018

Arindam Sengupta

Reading comprehension questions often include strategies for tackling certain, discrete skills, like vocabulary, identification of main ideas, and comparisons within and between texts. What makes reading comprehension such a complex thing is that all this has to be done in a certain time limit. With strong emphasis on lateral ability to understand information, RC is used as a major component of CAT exam
