Common Entrance Test popularly known as CAT 2015 is a national level exam. There are several changes done this year for the admission of students in India’s premier business school. The online CAT 2015 entrance exam will be conducted on 29th November, 2015 consists of 650 test sites across 136 cities. The CAT 2014 was held on 2 different days but this year it’s going to be held on same day and in two sessions. Applicants cannot switch from one section to another while answering questions in a section and the test will automatically shift to the next section once a candidate spends an hour in one section. Last year CAT was entirely based on MCQs where students had to select the correct option or options but from this year a major modification in the examination would be the introduction of written answers (typed on the screen) along with Multiple Choice Questions.
The Committee of CAT 2015 has also decided to make changes in the pattern by introducing new section to the test on Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning (DILR) separately from Quantitative Aptitude (QA) and Verbal and Reading Comprehension (VRC). The total number of questions will be 100 which will be divided into 3 sections such as 34 questions each for QA and VRC and 32 questions for DILR.
The committee has also decided to bring in few questions where candidates need to solve the problems and key-in the correct answers instead of just selecting the correct options among the given choices which will help the students to decrease of estimate work. Candidates will be provided with tutorials in the official website of CAT to understand the format of the examination from 15th October, 2015. While applying for CAT 2015 exam candidates will be given option to select out of 4 cities as per their preference to appear for the examination.
