CAT 2006 Answers

All top-coaching center has published solutions for CAT 2006 in their web sites. PT India was the first to complete it as they did it last year. The process of publishing solutions was first started by Career Forum way back in year

2001 when they had published more than 45 solutions in mathematics out of the 50 questions.

 That was a big achievement considering the fact that at that time students were not allowed to keep CAT paper after the exam. All students were supposed to return the question paper with the OMR sheet But some how both PT and CF were able to provide partial solutions. The scenario was very much similar till the year 2003. Back then students had no option but to wait for the result to know their performance.

But all those were history. To know the solutions of CAT 2006 you can access any of the following web sites



Though TIME was the last to publish the answers in their site they have the best explanations to all the answers. Career Launcher has gone up to the extent of predicting percentile and according to the site the expected percentile table is as given below.

The site claims to have considered 8000 students feedback in preparing the percentile table. IMS has collected 24000+ students performance and will publish a comprehensive analysis on 22nd November. Erudite has also published the solutions on its site.


The predictions on percentile may not be perfect but the seriousness shown by all the institutes towards the cat takers is remarkable. Few hours of proper analysis with all these answers and information can make students judge their stand in the exam and help them in deciding future course of action.

IIM results dawdling: 21st might be the D day

The 6 IIMs have deferred the admissions for the academic session 2007-2008 till 21st April. IIMs have reiterated that they are not in a position to implement the quota if the government fails to solve the impasse. The Centre is most likely to go the Supreme Court this afternoon in the OBC quota case. All the IIMs were supposed to declare their result on/before 12th April but the confusion started when the Union HRD Ministry sent out a letter to all centrally-aided institutes, including the IIMs and IITs, asking them to withhold declaration of entrance examination results till the Supreme Court decided whether or not to lift the stay on implementation of OBC quotas in this academic session. Part of the latter as published in news paper/portals and shown on TV channels "You are advised not to issue any offers of admissions in institutes under your control for the ensuing academic session until you receive further communication in this regard from the central government." Earlier the IIMs have sent a letter to the MHRD to clarify the matter and tried their best to publish the list on time. If the HRD ministry and the IIMs do not come to a decision soon, it’s the students who will stand to lose out the most. Unworried by the situation all Private management schools are going ahead with their admissions and selected students have been asked to pay the first installment of fees, making students more confused. XLRI has fixed the deadline to pay its first fee installment on 20th april and the amount is around 2 lakh. For other institutes the amount varies from Rs 10,000 to Rs 4 lakh . Though Institutes refund a part of the first installment in case of a student pull out and joins an IIM, the amount is always much less than what students required to pay while confirming their offer latter.
