The convener IIM Ahmedabad has announced a new exam pattern for CAT 2015. The exam will be administered on 29th November and results will be declared in the second week of January 2016.
The changes were made to provide an “even” field to candidates from divergent streams and for a better assessment of data interpretation ability.
As per the latest pattern-
There would be three sections in the exam to be held, namely, Quantitative Aptitude (QA), Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning (DILR) and Verbal and Reading Comprehension (VRC).
Some questions in each section may not be of multiple choice type. Instead, direct answers are to be typed on the screen.
The QA and VRC sections will have 34 questions each, DILR will have 32 questions.
Time duration of the examination has been increased to 180 minutes from 170 minutes.
The candidates will be allotted exactly 60 minutes for answering questions in each section and they cannot switch from one section to another while answering questions.
The use of basic onscreen calculator for computation would be allowed.
In a previous announcement, IIM-A confirmed that the test will be held in two sessions.
The CAT exam has been criticized for being skewed towards candidates from engineering background but the changes could provide an “even field to candidates coming from different streams”, said an IIM faculty.
The changes would help in better assessment of how the future managers can collect data from multiple sources and make sense of it.
Registration for CAT 2015 will start on August 6 and candidates can download their admit card from October 15.
