All about CAT
CAT Classes in Chennai
The Indian Institutes of Management conduct the Common Admissions Test (CAT) every year as a single window entrance to their two year management program for applicants throughout India.
The registration process for this entrance examination usually starts by mid-July every year. IIM’s trusted partner Prometric India has developed and delivered this computer-based test till date. The registration window is usually open from August first week to September last week. Candidates can buy traditional vouchers for this exam from bank branches across the country or otherwise procure them online from the IIMs website.
The CAT is the most competitive exam of its kind in India as admission into IIMs promises the prospective student a rewarding and fulfilling career. In the latest format, the CAT has only two sections. They are Quantitative Ability & Data Interpretation and Verbal Ability and Logical Reasoning. Each section has a separate time limit and is always administered sequentially. In all each of these segments has 30 questions which must be answered in 70 minutes each. Once time for the first section has been exhausted the examinee has to attempt the second section and cannot move backwards.
The CAT is usually administered between mid-October and mid-November across 40 cities in India. It is most certainly useful to go through the 15 minute tutorial and the practice test provided by the IIMs before-hand.
