CAT 2017 will be a single day exam and will be held over two sessions on the same day, most probable date of CAT 2017 is on Sunday, November 26. The number of CAT exam centers proposed has been reduced this year, IIM Lucknow is expected to reduce the already increased number of test centers in the states of Bihar, U.P. and others in hinterlands. Last year, IIM Bangalore had increased CAT exam centres to 138 with even more testing venues and focused more on small towns.
Last year CAT allowed the candidates with 2 years of university recognized graduate degree in old pattern as eligible to appear in the exam. It is also expected that the session time of the exam might also undergo change. Change in reporting time at test center. It used to be one and a half hour earlier but was increased to two hours before the scheduled time of beginning of the CAT exam. It may be reduced this year.
It is possible that Exam Pattern Also Change – The total overhaul of CAT began in 2015, However, the same was not implemented in the year 2016 by IIM Bangalore. But, it is expected that CAT 2017 exam may have different structure and content with more aspirant friendly features. The difficulty level fluctuates and accordingly the percentile score based on raw score in CAT also goes for ups and downs. It implies that the problem is not to score high in CAT but to score balanced sectional percentile and get through the tough competition among more than 2 lakh IIM aspirants. There were 72% MCQs and 28% Non-MCQs in CAT 2015 exam. Number of sections got increased to 3 from 2 in CAT exam.
IIM Bangalore improved the quality of test and rationalized the share of MCQs and Non-MCQs without increasing or decreasing the total number of questions. So this year IIM Lucknow is equally benevolent and is expected to bring about more aspirant friendly changes in CAT 2017 that can help to score high percentile in the exam.
