Now let us take a look at the expected CAT cutoff of non-IIM CAT participating institutes.

CAT Cutoff for Various Colleges

As the CAT cutoff depends largely on the difficulty level of the exam, it’s important to know that the exam last year was moderately tough on the difficulty scale.

As the CAT 2019 result has been declared on January 4, 2020, the participating institutes will shortlist candidates based on their cutoffs and other CAT eligibility criteria. Shortlisted candidates will appear for the selection procedure which includes Writing Ability Test (WAT) or Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interview (PI) rounds. More than 4000 seats are offered by 20 IIMs through CAT exam.

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.
