CAT 2018 Exam Pattern

  • The duration of the test will be 180 minutes. There will be three sections:
    Section I: Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension
    Section II: Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning
    Section III: Quantitative Ability
  • Candidates will be allotted exactly 60 minutes for answering questions in each section and they will not be allowed to switch from one section to another while answering questions in a section.
  • Some questions in each section may not be of multiple-choice type. Instead, direct answers will have to be typed on the screen. The tutorials will clearly explain this. Also, use of basic onscreen calculator for computation will be allowed.

Additional Important Details

Candidates will be given the option to select 4 test cities in order of preference. Cities and centres will be assigned to the candidates only after the last date for CAT 2018 registration and hence candidates need not rush to block slots and cities in the initial days of registration.

Concerned authority will try their best to assign candidates to their first preferred city. In case it is not possible, they will be assigned a city following their given order of preference. In the rare case that a candidate is not allotted any of the preferred cities, he/she will be allotted an alternate city. However, candidates will not be able to select the session because it will be assigned randomly.

Tutorial to understand the format of the test will be available on the CAT website from 17th October 2018. Candidates are advised to work on the tutorials available on the CAT website well in advance.
