The application deadline for CAT 2016 was also extended for five days. This year, IIM Lucknow has yet to mention about the application correction window.

It is a computer based exam of three hours duration carrying 100 questions from three sections - Verbal and Reading Comprehension (34), Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (32) and Quantitative Ability (32). The questions will be objective in nature with multiple choices and some questions will be non-MCQs. Each question carries three marks and each wrong answer will result in negative marking of one mark.
