IIM CAT 2021: Exam Pattern
The format of the test will remain the same as last year. There will be three shifts of 2-hour examination comprising three sections: i) Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension, ii) Quantitative Ability, and iii) Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning. Candidates will be given 40 minutes for each section, PwDcandidates will get 13 minutes and 20 seconds extra for each section.
“Last year’s CAT format changes were necessitated due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Since we are seeing the same pandemic issue this year, the CAT 2021 exam format and pattern will remain the same. However, considering that there could have been time pressure to complete the CAT exam last year on account of changes made, for CAT 2021 the CAT Committee is making an attempt in reducing the number of questions across all three sections- QA, DILR and VARC,” reads the official statement.
