Syllabus For CAT Exam

syllabus for cat 2017 exam

I really wanted to help you here. Hence, I started searching for a defined syllabus for the CAT on different websites but couldn’t find any satisfactory answer. This made me realize, there isn’t any defined syllabus for CAT Exam. They may even come with an announcement that they have removed a section or added another one. 

You can also find help-STRATEGY TO SCORE 99 PERCENTILE

It is simply an Aptitude test.

There are, however, as of today, 4 major umbrellas of topics:
  1. Quantitative Ability
  2. Data Interpretation
  3. Logical Reasoning
  4. Verbal Ability
