Unlike last two years, candidates do not get the opportunity to edit any other field in the CAT 2018 application form. Commenting on the same, Prof. Basu says, “The correction is restricted only to change the photograph. As the application workflow allows candidates to submit the application in multiple attempts, there was no separate Edit Window option provided for the candidates after submission. In case a candidate wants to modify any information after submitting, (s)he has to apply as a new candidate.”

CAT 2018 application deadline extended till September 26

Answering the anticipations of CAT aspirants yet to apply for the exam, the application deadline for CAT 2018 has been extended by a week, till September 26, 2018 by IIM Calcutta. The original deadline for applying to CAT 2018 was September 19. Stating the reason for extending the application deadline,  Prof. Sumanta Basu, CAT 2018 Convenor said, “This extension is provided considering the inconvenience that the candidates had to go through for collection of official documents after natural disaster hit different parts of India. Also this will give a breather to the candidates who were struggling to complete the application process within the deadline.”

The last date of CAT application is extended every year. This year too was not an exception. Candidates who have already registered, can pay the application fee on or before September 26, 2018, till 5 PM. Apart from that, no other important date of CAT 2018 has changed. Earlier, the Convenor had suggested that there is no need to rush to complete the payment process. They should verify each and every data while entering them before final submission as there would be no option to edit or correct information entered in the CAT 2018 application form.

CAT 2018 is scheduled to be held on November 25, 2018, in forenoon and afternoon slots in 147 cities across India.

i have got 82 in 10th, 55 in 12th and 68 in graduation what should i score in cat to get good b with avg salary of 8,9lkhs

Rehan Alam Student Expert 18th Oct, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

You have to score a minimum of 99 percentile to get at least one good IIM call as your academics are not good. You could get a call from new IIMs if you score 99 percentile as the top tier IIMs will not give you a chance due to your poor acads.

Colleges you could look for are like IIM Nagpur, Kashipur, Shillong, etc. These colleges if you study well will provide you with a good package of 10-12 lpa.

Hope this helps. Thank you.

i have got 90 percentile in cat but my academic scores are quite low 80 percent in 10th,55 percent in 12 from bihar board and 65 percent in graduation from bihar board, would i get good clg

Rehan Alam Student Expert 18th Oct, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

You will not be able to get any good business school like top IIMs, MDI, IIFT, or FMS. However, you can still get a good MBA tier 3/4 college if you increase your percentile to 98 percentile.

However, according to your grads, you must not be disappointed if you don't get a call at 99 because your marks are not good.

Hope for the best. Thank you.

what is the syllabus of CAT exam ..is it stream wise ...? which stream students is eligible for CAT ?

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 18th Oct, 2019

Hello,


Eligibility for CAT is graduate in any discipline from a recognized university with 50% aggregate, for SC/ST/PwD it's 45%.


So, people from any background can apply for CAT, provided they have required aggregate at their graduation level against their category.



Now, coming to the syllabus for CAT, there's no specific syllabus for CAT, one needs to rely on past years sample papers to get a fair idea about the pattern and weightage given to each topic and section.In general, questions are mostly from middle school level English and Mathematics.



There are mainly three sections in CAT-



Logical Reasoning & Data Interpretation which includes topics such as Tables, Graphs, Data Caselets, Seating Arrangement, Blood Relation, Syllogism etc.



Quantitative Aptitude which includes topics such as Geometry, Algebra, Time and Work, Mensuration, Number System etc.



Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension which includes topics such as Sentence completion, Questions based on reading comprehension, Para-jumbles & para-summar, inferences etc.



To know the detailed topics, kindly go through the following link-

how to prepare for cat in 1 month

Anupam Kumar Student Expert 17th Oct, 2019

Hey there

Honestly there is a difference between just finishing the syllabus and preparing for selection in cat. See you can finish the syllabus if you'll work really hard in one month but trust me only unless you are extraordinary you won't be able to get selected for iims or other good colleges. But don't loose hope you should fight till last.
