This is 2IIM's database of CAT Level Questions. Our CAT Preparation Material is created by a team that takes the CAT every year. Many of these questions have been inspired by past year-CAT questions. Questions come with detailed explanations, with video solutions from Rajesh, our Director, and slideshows. Note: These are not mere exercise problems. These are a set of must solve questions that are pegged at the difficulty of the CAT. Solving them can be very valuable, both for exposure to different question patterns, and for learning different concepts from the explanations. The best part of it all: It's completely free! You are welcome to solve all our questions, and view all explanations totally free of cost. Get cracking with your CAT Preparation, and all the best for your CAT .
Kindly note that, while the Questionbank is free for anyone who is preparing for the CAT, we ask that you refrain from reproducing any question or any part of our content in any form on Websites not affiliated with 2IIM.
