CAT 2013 Checklist

The must carry documents include your CAT 2013 Admit Card and proof of your identity. If you belong to SC/ST/OBC category, you need to carry a proof of that as well.

Differently Abled (DA) Candidates who require support during the test should bring an authorization from Prometric and photo identification of the scribe if applicable.

Acceptable Photo Identification Types

  • Driver’s License

  • Passport

  • PAN Card

  • Voter ID

  • College ID (this must be supported with a valid ATM/Debit/Credit Card in your name)

  • Employee identification card

  • UID Card


Items that are prohibited in the test center

You will not be allowed to carry the following but not limited items inside the CAT 2013 testing area:

  • Wrist watch

  • Pen/Stationeries

  • Cell phone

  • Calculator/electronic items

Your personal items will be stored in a bag which will be submitted in the test center. After you complete your test, your belongings will be handed over to you.

DA candidates who have been approved for special requirements such as wheel chair and hearing aid have to bring along those devices. Prometric will provide the magnifying screen.

Reporting for the Test

Reporting time for the test is one of the most crucial factors. It is mandatory to report to the test center 1.5 hours prior to the test schedule. If you have registered for the Slot 1, which starts from 10 am, you must reach the test center by 8.30 am. If you have registered for the second slot, which starts from 3.15 pm, you will have to arrive the test center by 1.30 pm.

The strictness of Prometric in regards to reporting time is evident from the fact that a candidate was not allowed to take the test at the Gurgaon test center as she had arrived post 9.30 am for the first slot on the Day 2 of CAT 2013.

Avoid wasting time locating the test center

It is best to visit your test center few days before the test day as it would save time in locating the center of the day of your exam. For your convenience, you can check the CAT 2013 test site directions here. This will also help you recognize the easiest route to reach your test center.

Can i apply for MBA at JK Lakhmipat University if i have not given CAT?

Megha 29th Mar, 2020

Hello Abhishek !

Yes ,you can apply at JK Lakhmipat University if you have not given CAT , because as per their eligibility criteria for getting admission their the candidates must have appeared in CAT/MAT/ATMA/XAT/CMAT or any other national level entrance test.

In case the candidate has not appeared for any of the mentioned tests, they will have to appear in the JKLU Management Entrance Test (MET) to qualify for the programme.

So, you can apply there by appearing in their Entrance test.

Hope it helps !

What is the CAT exam pattern ?

Aashima Puri 29th Mar, 2020

Hello aspirant, hope you are doing well!

CAT ( Common admission test) is a very reputed entrance exam conducted by the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) for admissions into various colleges for MBA. The duration of the exam is 3 hours for all the categories and 4 hours for the PwD category. The sectional duration for each section is 60 minutes each whereas it is 80 minutes for the candidates of the PwD category.

The total number of questions asked in the entrance exam are 100. It is a computer based examination.

Candidates lose 1 mark for each incorrect answer and gain 3 marks for every correct answer. No marks are deducted for the questions which the candidate didn't attempt.

The examination consists of 3 sections namely - Quantitative ability , Data interpretation & logical reasoning and Verbal ability and reading comprehension. These sections consists of 34,32 and 34 questions each respectively.

The candidates are not allowed to switch between the sections. He/she can move to the next section only after attempting the previous section which he/she was completing. Though, the candidates are allowed to switch between questions within the same section.

These were some of the main points to be kept in mind for the CAT exam.
