Looking rationally into the paper patterns of the 150 plus CAT papers in the past period, there have not been too many changes with regard to the pattern of the examination as compared to previous years. In the near future, the CAT is expected to shift to an adaptive format (like the GMAT) where every test taker would get a different set of questions.
As you must be aware, the CAT 2011 introduced a new pattern shift by reducing the number of sections from 3 to 2. Before CAT 2011, there used to be three sections containing 20 questions each in the CAT exam namely:
Section 1: Quantitative Aptitude.
Section 2: Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension.
Section 3: Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning.
In the new pattern the number of sections was reduced to 2 sections containing 30 questions each, namely:
Section 1: Quantitative Aptitude & Data Interpretation.
Section 2: Verbal Ability & Logical Reasoning.
Earlier CAT used to have 20 questions on Quantitative Aptitude, 20 questions on Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension, 10-12 questions on Data Interpretation and 8-10 questions on Logical Reasoning.
Now according to the new pattern, Section 1 has 20 questions on Quantitative Aptitude and 10 questions on Data Interpretation merged together under one section, while the 20 questions on Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension and 10 questions on Logical Reasoning were merged together under the other section.
