Re: CE Mock Aptitude Test - I Discussions

actually most of the quants questions consumed more than 3 minutes to crack. that left me time just to guess in most of the questions... πŸ˜”

The question-set was really nice. Some were tough. Some of the questions took more time than expected to get solved. So I had to guess the answers of most of the questions due to time constraint.. πŸ˜”
I have got 100! 😐 Is it a good score or... πŸ˜”

Questions and answers coming soon! What's your opinion about the toughness of the test?

There was no negative scoring?
@Biggie: Test was kinda tough... But I didn't plan. Almost half the time went off for the first 10 questions itself... πŸ˜”

Nope there was no negative marketing. We're planning to add it in future. Do you all suggest that we conduct such tests every weekend? πŸ˜€
Yeah please conduct so that we can try to get a good score at the original exam... 😁

My god! I took 5 mins for some of the quan questions.

I chose the answers randomly for rest of the questions😭😭

I have to improve a lot!

The level of difficulty was medium.

@Biggie: Include negative marking after 5 tests gets over.

It would be nice if we conduct the test every week end πŸ˜€

Yes, we're planning to conduct the test every weekend. Yes, future tests will have negative markings.
The level of difficulty is medium for Quant, I dont know for English and easy for DI.

THe panel question was very easy!!

@ALL : A small tip, if you feel a question is tuff always leave it and solve at last, the DI were easy which I solved after first 15 mins. SO scoring is imp πŸ˜€

Its the first online test I wrote, Is it the same way CAT exam is?

@Biggie: We need to have negative marking which really avoids guessing and we will be as good as writing a original test.

i think it is none of these. πŸ˜€ the first third and fifth are two letters preceeding it and the rest are one letter preceeding it.

The answer is BKYRR. I got all the answers with me...

the quants is closer to the level of CAT. but logical and verbal is easier than CAT. πŸ˜€

I am not talking about the difficulty level, I am just asking about the way the questions are displayed and selecting the options etc.

Or do we have page by page in CAT?

Kaustubh Katdare • Jul 24, 2011
@ES: Point well taken. This is the first time we've conducted the test and already noted down lot of action items for the next test. Let's plan to take it to bigger level with more participation. We'll also move over to the bigger platform to conduct the tests. Will keep everyone posted.

each question is page by page... but for the RCs and the DI questions involving same data for many questions, the are in a single page with a scroll down..
Reasoning Comprehension and Data Insufficiency?
in my opinion quant level is medium..logical reasoning was fine πŸ˜€ i able to pass based on that..please attached the question and answers in this thread.

And one important point to note is the we get huge traffic and too many posts at the end and at the time of test, we need to keep a eye on server as well I am talking about the outage.

Thanks CP. Does anybody think that the difficulty level should be increased?
I have created these questions, keeping in mind the general aptitude tests by companies coming for recruitment.

No i think this is the difficulty level at which the placement tests will be... we write them every week in our college and they are almost similar...
I guess all the questions have the same kinda stuff, except which you have to calculate the time and steps needed to solve, to check the difficulty of the questions... 😁

Yeah, these questions were too difficult, may be becoz of my lack of preparation... πŸ˜”

I accidentally clicked one of the questions I didn't want to attend, and then I could never clear it (only toggle among the answers).
And, I clicked the save button a few seconds before timeout. As it showed 'loading' for some seconds, the time was up and it closed. may be I missed for a second or two.

I think both the above issues can be solved if every question has a Save and Submit option (which can be done more than once during the exam time).
Whats the need for clearing your answer if you don't have negative markings?
eternalthinker
eternalthinker • Jul 24, 2011
IF you don't have negative markings, yes, there is no need. πŸ˜€
Right now there's no negative marking, and I hope and wish, not to have negative marking.. πŸ˜€
eternalthinker
eternalthinker • Jul 24, 2011
Negative marking will surely force us to improve. And not having them, any particular advantage with it (other than the score πŸ˜‰)?

Do general aptitude tests have -ve marks? :-/
I guess not... Except AIEEE and IITJEE, nothing has negative marks... πŸ˜€

CAT has negative marks.. Negative marks are generally good, as it encourages us to be sure of our answer before submitting it..

The point of these aptitude tests is not only to test if you can solve the problems, but if you can solve it in a given time.

If I had 6 hours with me, I can solve all questions in the CAT paper, every single one of them.. Almost everyone can..

But you don't have 6 hours.. you only have one.. Probably even less than that, considering you also have to do DI and verbal..

So, only when it has negative marks, you will attempt only those topics u r confident about, and you'll mark only those answers which u r sure of..

If negative marking is not there, there'll be a tendency to sit in a single question for too long.. Because, anyway marks are not gonna be deducted for wrong answers.. So, if there's no time, we'll mark off the answers randomly.. Simply put, we won't know when to stop and give up on a question.. At least for that, we need negative marking..

silverscorpion • Jul 24, 2011
Besides that, negative marking also eliminates or at least, reduces the possibility that someone who randomly ticked off all the answers gets a score more than you.. That is also very important.. 😁

I think both the above issues can be solved if every question has a Save and Submit option (which can be done more than once during the exam time).
there was a save and continue button at the bottom, which can be use any time during the exam.
thats the key which saved me.. because i saved my answers when there was 2 mins remaning.and forgot to press the submit button...
