The Union cabinet on Tuesday cleared the Indian Institute of Management Bill, 2017, which has been in the works for nearly four years. The Bill will be tabled in the Lok Sabha during the Budget session, which will begin on January 31.
If passed in the Parliament, the biggest change the legislation will bring is that IIMs across the country will award degrees instead of diplomas to students. This will end a dilemma that many candidates face: whether to pick the IIM brand over a degree programme. This distinction can be a hindrance during international placements as the diploma does not hold as much value as a degree abroad.
According to alumni and current students, those in the newer branches of the institute will benefit the most from this.
A degree instead of a diploma would most benefit those in academics as they will not have to take additional courses to get more credits to get into research or for a PhD programme, for instance.
Students who've had to face certain hindrances on account of this distinction shall now breathe a sigh of relief, subject to the decision made when the Bill will be tabled in the Lok Sabha during the Budget session.
CAT 2016 was a tad bit more difficult in comparison to its predecessor in terms of level of difficulty. The Verbal Ability (VA-RC) was relatively Easy, Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation (LR-DI) were difficult as it consisted of highly deceptive sets that gave the illusion of being easy but were in fact on the difficult end of the spectrum and the level of the Quantitative Ability (QA) section ranged from Moderate to Difficult. For a large chunk of the aspirants, the LR-DI section is going to be a very crucial segment of their attempt and will either make or break the same.
Verbal Ability (VA-RC):
There were five passages of approximately 400-450 words with 24 questions. All the 10 non-MCQs or TITA questions were in the Verbal Ability section that included vocabulary and the question types were fill in the blanks, sentence correction, para jumbles, odd man out etc.
Good Attempts: 24-26
Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation (LR-DI):
There were 16 questions each from DI and LR, out of which four were non-MCQs. The Reasoning questions were from topics like Set Theory, Coding-Decoding, etc and the only doable set in DI had lengthy percentage related questions. If an aspirant has solved 3 sets completely and accurately, then he will easily clear the cut-offs of this section.
Good Attempts: 12-15
Quantitative Ability (QA):
The topics in this section included Number Systems, Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry and Modern Math with an increase in the number of questions in geometry as compared to last year. The number of non-MCQs in this section were 7. There were few sitters and most of the questions were time consuming. So, selection of questions was crucial.
Good Attempts: 21-24
As per our experts, all those who have attempted 65+ questions with decent accuracy can expect a good score. The CAT 2016 result will be declared in the second week of January, 2017.
