MICAT 2019 Analysis

MICAT 2019 Analysis – Here we will look at the section wise analysis of previous year MICAT 2019 exam. Talking about the MICAT Exam Pattern and MICAT syllabus, there are 3 main sections. Section A is Psychometric Test, Section B is Descriptive Test and Section 3 has 4 subsections, and these are mentioned in the table below. Clearing the MICAT exam allows the aspirant to take admission in Mudra Institute of Communications, a prestige B-school in India. The dates for MICAT registration are already released and mentioned on their website. We would advise the candidates to apply as early as possible and not wait for MICAT last date of registration. Also, to clear the MICAT Cut off for MICAT 2021, it is suggestable to solve a bunch of MICAT sample paper to get the hang of the exam pattern.

Now, talking about the MICAT 2019 exam, the paper was of an overall moderate difficulty. Though the third section was relatively tougher, the difficulty level got compensated due to the first 2 sections being easier to overcome. Many students found out through their MICAT result that they scored well in Sections A and B, while they scored less in Section C. And this has been the trend since the last few years as well, with Section C being more difficult than other sections. With the MICAT Exam Date approaching closer, it is recommended that students focus on all the 3 sections and complete the preparation as soon as possible, so they have ample time to give mocks.

Section-Wise In-Depth Analysis for MICAT 2019 Analysis:

Section A – PSYCHOMETRIC TEST

Let us first look at the Psychometric Test for MICAT 2019:

MICAT 2019 Analysis : There were no correct or incorrect answers in this episode. A situation/course of action posed about 30 issues and the test-taker had to mark either True or False. The other 120 issues were about a specific feature of personality or a course of action. Students had to choose a single choice. The eight options from which students needed to mark their answer were:

  • Totally Disagree
  • Strongly Disagree
  • Disagree
  • Somewhat Disagree
  • Somewhat Agree
  • Agree
  • Strongly Agree
  • Totally Agree

Section B - DESCRIPTIVE TEST

Now we will look at the Descriptive Test for MICAT 2019:

MICAT 2019 Analysis : The analytical and descriptive writing ability and creative skills of test-takers were evaluated in this segment. The total time given for these questions to be tried was 30 minutes. They were linked to each other with the first three questions. ‘Laziness: How it can help society’ was the subject for the first three questions. Students had to write three points each,’ for’ and ‘against’ the subject, for the first two questions. These two questions each bore ten marks.

In the third question, students had to write a 300-word answer to ‘suggested measures to ensure that laziness could be used as a tool for organizational successes by a young boss’. It was clear from the instruction that the points for the third question should not include the points listed in the first two questions. On this issue, twenty marks were assigned.

In this segment, the fourth question consisted of four images. With the aid of a novel, students had to write down a specific pictorial combination (A-B-C-D or D-C-B-A or some such combination) and describe it. The photos were connected to an ‘old & dilapidated house with a red painted newly built entrance, a shopping complex, a bee-shaped drone, and a 3-panel window grill’. This issue had 30 marks on it.

MBAP is a great place to prepare for MBA-CET, CAT, and CMAT, and the faculty are unbeatable. Most importantly, they pay personal attention to each student. Most faculty members come from IIMs. One-on-one interaction helped me improve as the exams approached, as well as get calls from IIMs I, S, and all New and Baby IIMs. Interview sessions were very beneficial for me to convert IIM S.

Coaching offers me personalized attention and a competitive environment. Because the preparation was so rigorous, I eventually began to perform at my best. The mock interviews/GD/WATs were conducted by anonymous panels, and it really boosted my confidence. Although I got a call from SCMHRD (SNAP-98.12), Abhijeet sir felt that I should try again and aim for IIM-A/B/C. It has been your pleasure to have been your mentor.

You will get good support from the faculty until you get into a B-School. The shortcut techniques you will learn will be extremely useful. You will be able to resolve doubts at any time. If you plan on taking CAT CET or any other entrance exam, go for MBA Pathshala. With the help of MBAP tutors, I received a call from IMT Ghaziabad.

GMAT prep with MBAP was the best I've ever experienced. With Rohan Kulkarni Sir's Verbal Guidance, I scored 85th percentile in my GMAT exam as I was very weak in English. I always found Haider Sir and Abhijeet to answer my questions and to develop strategies and shortcuts to tackle GMAT problems for me. MBAP is a great option for GMAT and CAT prep.
