The Common Admission test (CAT) is one of the national level management entrance examinations. The exam is schedules to be held on 4th December, 2016. This exam will be conducted every year by IIMs as a prerequisite for the admissions to various management programmes in IIMs.
Throughout the year, this exam has been going through many major changes in exam pattern, marking schemes, syllabus etc. Now, two major changes have been incorporated in the registration form with the addition of a designated test centre i.e. Noida.
Registrations for CAT examination are going on. The candidates who haven’t enrolled yet will enrol themselves by September 22, 2016. In order to appear for the exam, candidates must have a Bachelor’s degree in any discipline from a recognised institute/ university.
Other than this, one of the designated test centres has been added in the list i.e Noida. It was previously removed as a test centre in the year 2014 and Greater Noida – a suburb of Noida was included in the list. This move of incorporation of Greater Noida as Test centre caused lots of problems for the candidates from Delhi- NCR, who was taking Noida as a test Centre.
The selection of candidates will be done on the basis of Written Ability Test (WAT), Group Discussion (GD), and after this, selected candidates will be called for personal interviews (PI) round.
