CAT Eligibility

You must hold a Bachelor’s Degree, with at least 50% marks or equivalent CGPA (45% in case of the candidates belonging to Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST) and Differently Abled (DA) categories). 

If you are appearing for the final year of bachelor’s degree/equivalent qualification examination and those who have completed degree requirements and are awaiting results can also apply.

CAT Exam New Pattern

From the year 2009, the mode of CAT has changed from paper-pencil based test to computer based test. CAT has two sections:

  1. Quantitative Ability & Data Interpretation
  2. Verbal Ability & Logical Reasoning

Each section has 50 objective type questions, making total of 100 questions in the paper.

The duration of the test in 2014 has been increased to 170 minutes (2 hours and 50 minutes). Earlier it was 140 minutes. There is no sectional time limits. There is also negative marking in the paper.
