Last year, CAT 2013 was announced on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 and the official notification was published in the national dailies on Sunday, July 28, 2014. The exam was conducted in a window of 20 days between October 16 and November 11, 2013. And the result was announced on Friday, January 14, 2014.

IIM Indore is conducting CAT 2014 with TCS as testing partner this year. For past five years, Prometric was conducting the online test in coordination with different IIMs. In the year 2009, CAT was converted to computer based test from the traditional paper pencil based exam. After the completion of five years, the contract between IIMs and Prometric ended and Tata Consultancy Services will conduct the test for the next five years.
This is the first time that an IIM is conducting CAT for two consecutive years. Incidentally, Prof. Kapoor was the CAT Convener in 2013 as well. Commenting on this, he mentioned, “This was a collective decision taken by the 6 IIMs including IIM Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, Lucknow, Indore and Kozhikode. Last year Prometric’s contract ended and this year it would be a new start with a new agency, hence the IIMs decided that it would be best for IIM Indore to continue this year as well.”
The total number of seats offered by the 13 IIMs is 3,335.
Note: As per the prediction made in the article, the CAT 2014 official notification has been declared on Sunday, July 27, 2014. The notification bears several changes in the application process, test conduct, timeline & schedule of the test. CAT 2014 will be held on 2 days in 4 slots on Sunday, November 16, 2014 and Saturday, November 22, 2014.

CAT is an exam which tests your practicality and not how much you can learn by rote learning. You can start off by appearing for a mock test conducted free online and assess your performance that'll help you see and judge the areas you need improvement in and then decide if you need coaching or you can go on by yourself. You can either go for self study or Prepare with a tutor. For english prep. You can start off with Word Power Made easy, do this book twice, don't rush but read it and learn for 30-45 mins everyday. For Quants and LR-Di Arun sharma. Giving a mock a week and analyzing your strengths and weakness in terms of topics, score, percentile score and the time you are spending per question is really important.
Do take mocks religiously and you'll see how much it can affect your preparation in a positive manner.
