CAT 2018 Changes (Expected)

As mentioned earlier, CAT 2018 exam date was announced much before the expected time period. Compared to last year, CAT exam date was announced at least two months before. Thus, we can expect few more changes in CAT 2018, since, after a gap of six years, IIM Calcutta will be conducting the test. Some of the expected changes of CAT 2018 are –

CAT 2018 Change 1: More CAT 2018 test sessions

  •  Recently, National Testing Agency has announced that it will conduct exams like JEE Main and NEET in at least 8 sittings. This decision was taken to avoid candidates to travel to faraway places to take the exam. Also, since the last 2-3 years, CAT aspirants are requesting the conducting bodies to conduct the test in two days i.e. in 4 different slots. Thus, this will provide the aspirants an alternate day if in case of any emergency or clashing with other exams

CAT 2018 Change 2: Availability of CAT Mock Tests early 

With the availability of the exam date much earlier, candidates can expect the CAT mock test to be available before the expected date.

CAT 2018 Change 3: Changes in CAT exam pattern 2018

Every year, CAT exam is becoming more friendly for the candidates who are from the non-engineering background. This year, it is expected that there will be a slight increase number of non-MCQs in CAT 2018.
