The Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Lucknow, is set to release the admit cards for the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2023 on November 7, 2023. Candidates who have registered for this MBA entrance exam can download their admit cards from the official website of IIM CAT. The exam itself is scheduled to take place on November 26, 2023.
CAT is a crucial examination for candidates aspiring to pursue postgraduate and fellow/doctoral programs at the prestigious Indian Institutes of Management. The exam consists of three sections: Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension (VARC), Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning (DILR), and Quantitative Ability (QA).
In recent years, CAT has undergone notable changes, particularly the shift from traditional Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) to Type in The Answer (TITA) questions. This shift demands a deeper understanding of the subjects, emphasizing comprehensive knowledge and problem-solving skills rather than rote learning.
Additionally, CAT has transitioned from a pen-and-paper mode to a computer-based test (CBT) mode since 2009. The 2023 CAT will continue in the CBT format, with a duration of 120 minutes.
Upon successful completion of the CAT exam, a total of 1,164 colleges will consider CAT scores for admission to their MBA programs. This includes 1,026 private colleges and 138 government colleges.
