CCAT is all about time management. Questions would be simple to moderate in level. But hardly you will get 18 seconds to answer a question.
A hard fact is less than 1% of candidates answer all 50 questions in the given time. If it would be 50 quesitons-40 minutes test, an average performer can answer all 50 questions with great accuracy.
Conclusion-01: The question difficulty level doesn't matter in CCAT.
Normally, in between every 5-6 questions you may encounter one lengthy numerical (or) reasoning question which we may call a trap. If you start solving the trap, it consumes x 4 points time in your exam. By the end of that minute you will get the correct answer but by that time your clock will freeze-out.
Conclusion-02: Don't spend more than half-minute on any question in the first 12 minutes of your exam.
If you are able to solve "30 questions in 15 minutes with good accuracy" it is an above average performance.
If you are able to solve "35 questions in 15 minutes with good accuracy" it is a good performance.
If you are able to solve " 40 questions in 15 minutes with good accuracy" it is a very good performance.
Conclusion-03: Remember in all cases "15 minutes with good accuracy" is common.
Conclusion-04: Remember no need to solve all 50 questions in CCAT to impress your hiring manager.
Based on conclusion-03 and 04, trying for 40 questions in 15 minutes(Don't miss good accuracy) is a reasonable idea which neutralizes overwhelming psychological stress developed by "50 QUESTIONS-15 MINUTES PHOBIA". Of course, even to target 40 questions you need a lot of practice. Remember, Practice is the only way to success!
