CAT doesn’t have a fixed syllabus. Most of the questions asked are from 8-10 maths and English topics. Last year, among 66 questions, 18 were TITA questions and 48 were MCQs. CAT syllabus has been the same for some years. The only difference is that the number of questions has been reduced to 66 mquestions from 100. Majorly from three subjects, the CAT exam question paper is covered- maths, english, data analysis.

All mathematics topics from classes 9 and 10—such as arithmetic, geometry, algebra, trigonometry, and mensuration—are covered in this section. In this section majorly logical-based questions are asked. Since the last few years questions were more focused on arithmetic followed by algebra. Few questions were from geometry.
