I spoke to a bunch of students over the last half an hour and given below is the information that I could gather. I will continue to update this post as and when more information comes in.
Overall CAT 2015 Analysis
Paper was more or less of the same difficulty level as last year. That is one way of saying that it was easy.
60+ attempts with 90%+ accuracy should lead to 98+ %ile.
Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension
Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension was probably the easiest section of the lot.
There were 24 questions on RC. Passages with 5/6 questions had 1/2 question
Given below are the images for the IIFT GK questions that a student emailed to me. I will be putting up the answers and solutions for it shortly. I think the General Knowledge section was harder than usual and hence the cutoff for the General Knowledge section is bound to be lower than usual. Considering that it was 2.5 last year, my expectation for this year is given below. Click here to share this post on Facebook.
Cutoff for GK - 2 to 2.5 marks

IIFT exam is a week away. Now a week can be considered a long time in many circumstances, such as waiting for the person to respond after seeing two blue ticks, but in case of preparation for an MBA entrance exam - it is definitely on the lesser side. Having said that, General Knowledge for IIFT is not something that will take a long time to prepare. To be honest, you can easily wrap it up in one week. You should be clear with what you want to achieve from the General Knowledge section of IIFT.
To be honest, if you are naturally good at General Knowledge - you do no
If you are planning to prepare for CAT 2016, it is perhaps the right time to understand that getting an admission into the top business schools does not just depend on your CAT score. Not only that, to get a good CAT score - you can do a lot stuff other than the coaching institute's material and / or my videos. You can and you should read as many books as you can, solve puzzles regularly. So, to discuss what "EXTRA" you as a CAT 2016 aspirant can do, I will be conducting a free class on the 8th of November. To attend the same, please provide your details below.
