The last B School Entrance Examination slot ended at 6:30 p.m. Students who sat for the CAT 2022 exam in the third slot shared initial reviews and rated the difficulty level paper as “moderate”. According to experts, the document was not very difficult, but various new question types were introduced in sections like VARC.

This year, para completion questions were added which was unexpected but impactful for the students. Overall, the CAT 2022 question paper has 66 questions of which VARC has 24 questions, the DILR section has 20 questions, and the QA section has 22 questions.

If we talk about the analysis of the exam by section, the QA section is considered the most difficult because the questions were long.
