"For any CAT aspirants, tests are the true benchmark of performance, and they provide an accurate picture of one´s preparation. Given their importance, it is vital that a student selects the best possible test series that gives an actual feel of the exam.

Analysis: IRMA 2010

IRMA was the first paper of Management Examination season. The paper was almost similar to IRMA 2009. Some students found paper a bit more difficult as compared to last year paper but Bullseye students had a reason to rejoice as a large number of questions in QA and DI and AR sections were from NET IRMA conducted by Bullseye . In English Comprehension Section also ,students found most of the RC s from pack 4. To be precise exactly 26 questions in QA and DI and 20 questions in AR were from NET IRMA. The GK section was the most difficult section and in this section low sectional cut-off is expected. Quantitative ability and English Comprehension was easier as compared to AR section which was a bit tricky.

IRMA is generally designed to test the candidates aptitude for Rural Management and hence majority of GK question were on Rural Management.

There were 200 questions (4 Sections) in all and the time allotted was 2hrs. The four sections were as follows:
English Comprehension
Quantitative Ability and Data Interpretation
Analytical Reasoning
Issues of Social Concern (GK)

Evaluation: This section had questions that tested the student's Analytical Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning, and Decision making ability. There were questions on Odd man- out, Course Of Action and Statement Assumption. The section required attentive reading and deep thinking as it seemed deceptively easy on the first glance.

Comfortable Attempt: 25-30 questions in about 40-45 minutes.
Achievable Score: 27+ was an achievable score.

SECTION IV: General Awareness (Issues of Social Concern)

Evaluation: This was the toughest of all sections. The questions were verbose and descriptive and answer choices tricky close. 8-10 questions were direct (Milkman of India, WTO, Famous Economist, Nobel prize winner) and a student who had brushed up his Current GK could have easily attempted these question and most of the other questions were on Government schemes, definition of terms, economics, poverty and agriculture etc. and exhaustive study was required to attempt these questions. Hence the expected cut-offs in this section is much lower.

Comfortable Attempt: About 25 in 30 minutes
Achievable Score: 18+ would be an achievable score in this area.
