Durig graduation can I aaplay cat exam? 2nd year continue

shubham gautam 29th Jan, 2020

Hey Saumyak,

To add to your knowledge, You can take CAT examination in any year of your graduation, but only the CAT exam taken in your final year will be counted as  valid. You could also write it any time after graduation suppose while working. But thing here is there should be no break, means you should either be working in a company/startup or you should be studying a recognized degree.

To be honest, there's no use of taking CAT exam in second year. If you really want to go in best B-schools. It is advised to take CAT in the final year of your degree. For now the best thing you can do is to start preparing for CAT, know the syllabus for CAT before hand. You have enough of time to cover whole syllabus before CAT exam.

Hope this helps!

Good luck.


How long CAT , XAT and CMAT results are valid ? Is this possible to use(cat,xat n cmat) 2020 result after August , I mean for the next batch ?

Shivika Tyagi 29th Jan, 2020
No, you cannot use 2020 result for the next session of 2021. For the new session you have to appear again for all the exams of cat, xat and cmat. With this years result you have to take admission in this year only.
Hope it helps. Thank you
