CAT Answer Key

Earlier, as per official statement, if any organisation, either official or other institutes, releases CAT answer key, would have to bear legal consequences. Even if a particular person or organisation claims to share the CAT answer key, rather than following it, inform the CAT officials. Even though the officials had earlier mentioned that no CAT answer key will be released in any form, many test takers and experts had demanded the officials to release the same for more transparency.

CAT 2018 answer key will be provided to make the test process completely transparent and to strengthen its credibility. Also, it will allow the test takers to estimate their score they can plan admission in a suitable B-School. CAT experts have been suggesting that IIMs must release CAT Question Paper and Answer Keys for transparency.
