How tough is CAT

The Common Admission Test (CAT) is a Computer Based Test in Quantitative Ability, Data Interpretation, Verbal Ability and Logical Reasoning. The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) use the test as an important component in selecting students for the business administration programs. The test is conducted every year by one of the IIM's based on a policy of rotation.

If you don't believe in your abilities and end up worrying about the question paper, it will be tough.
CAT is an entrance test for would-be managers; hence, it simulates everyday situations a manager has to tackle. The exam, in fact, tests much more than one's skills in the English language and quantitative aptitude.
It evaluates one's managerial capabilities -- these include working under pressure, managing time, making decisions and tackling change. Strangely, most students neglect this aspect of CAT. As a result, many bright students do not clear the exam. If you want to do well in CAT, you should devote time to developing and honing a managerial aptitude.
