How paper pattern changes through years

After 25 years, since it introduced in 1984, the Common Admission Test (CAT) changed to computer-based (CBT) mode in 2009. Prometric India Private Limited, the online testing partner, designed the software for the first CBT examination. The examination witnessed lots of technical glitches, which finally resulted in re-examination.

The IIM-Ahmadabad conducted the examination again in January 2010.

Drop in CAT registration- why?

Nearly, 2.30 lakh (2,27,835) had applied to appear for CAT this year as against 2.44 lakh last year. The number of applicants is the lowest since 2016.

CAT convener Harshal Lowalekar said that the drop was natural given the COVID scenario. “In fact, we expected the registrations to be much lower than 2.28 lakh this year based on the trend observed in the other national-level competitive exams,” said Harshal.
