i had taken the exam on 23rd nov in the morning slot...i.e. at 10 am...can anyone in morning slot please list out details of the wrong QA & DI LR questions so that even i can lodge a complaint with prometric...


If you have taken CAT:wow: you have also agreed to the NDA thing.. Whatever be the case- wrong questions or not, you can't discuss the Qs
Maybe you have the "NOW nothing matters" kinda fury.. still don't take chances

#Justsaying: Also, in my knowledge a few candidates did not find wrong questions, so I'm assuming the question sets were different!! In that case, since you didn't actually notice anything wrong yourself, perhaps your set was fine...maybe and just maybe!!

LODGE A COMPLAIN only if you feel your set was wrong. In that case you can write to them and state that you don't remember the questions. That isn't a problem.

Hi..please appeal all your frineds from 23rd Nov to post their concern to PROMETRIC in the CATIIM Wesbite


I have reported to prometric with exact questions and did get a phone call and an email . The female at the other side assured me that it wont effect my score and the questions would be cross checked by IIM faculty . I hope they really mean it. In the article I read at pagalguy about the wrong questions being reported to cat convenor Mr Himanshu Rai. He has said for all wrong questions students will be given an extra point based on psychometric analysis which according to me means they will check the time allotted to screen which contained that question. And yes this facility would be available as even CL does it in the analysis part where it tell the number of time you visited that question and time spent on it. I hope everything is fair.A wrong question can mean at least 1.5 %

"I ATTENDED CAT 2010 ON EVENING SLOT 23RD NOV AND GOT 3 WRONG QUESTIONS IN MY SET.I FEEL THIS IS COMPLETELY IRRESPONSIBLE ATTITUDE OF PROMETRIC PLAYING WITH THE FUTURE OF STUDENTS.WE WASTED SO MUCH TIME ON THIS RELATIVELY EASY QUESTION WHOSE OPTIONS WERE WRONG AND AN YEAR IN PREPARING FOR CAT. HOW WOULD PROMETRIC AND IIMS JUSTIFY TO THIS MISTAKE."

Hi All,

I also took the test on 23 Nov 2010, Afternoon slot. I too faced the same problem of some wrong question in the Quant and DI secition. Wrote to prometric about the same yesterday. Got a call and mail from them today.

Hope our voice is reaching the authority that can make a difference.



Hi..in addition to logging the call, we need to make sure that we have a Transaction ID for our call for future transactions so as to know the updates on the same.
