Computer Adaptive Test(CAT)


The verbal section consists of 41 multiple choice questions. These carry 0-60 points. The questions are to be solved in 75 minutes maximum and after that there is an optional 10 minutes break before going to the next section.

The verbal section consists of 3 parts:
  • Sentence Correction
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Critical reasoning

Sentence Correction tests the examinee’s proficiency in English grammar, its usage and style. Sentence correction items consist of a sentence, all or part of which has been underlined, with five associated answer choices listed below the sentence. The first answer choice is exactly the same as the underlined portion of the sentence. The remaining four answer choices contain different phrasings of the underlined portion of the sentence. The test taker is instructed to choose the first answer choice if there is no flaw with that phrasing of the sentence. If there is a flaw with the original phrasing of the sentence, the test taker is instructed to choose the best of the four remaining answer choices. It tests correct expression and diction.

Reading Comprehension tests that how critically the examiner reads the passage. The passage can be about anything and ranges from 200-350 words .Each passage has three or more questions based on its content. The questions ask about the main point of the passage, about what the author specifically states, about what can be logically inferred from the passage, and about the author's attitude or tone.

Critical Reasoning tests the logical reasoning of the examinee. The examinee is required to analyze an argument by using his thinking skills. Questions may ask test takers to draw a conclusion, to identify assumptions, or to recognize strengths or weaknesses in the argument.
