Time limit change for CAT 2020 & Last date extension

The CAT authorities made three major announcements regarding the CAT 2020.

  1. The deadline to apply has been extended to 23 September (5 pm).

    After 23 September there will be a short window for making corrections (in CAT forms which have been submitted with errors) in the following

    1. Photograph

    2. Signature

    3. Test city preferences

  2. The test will be conducted in 3 sessions on 29 November. When the notification was put in early August, only two sessions were announced. The timings of the sessions are yet to be announced.

  3. Though the sections remain the same, the sectional time limit has been changed to 40 minutes each. The overall duration of the exam will now be 2 hours, compared to the 3 hours as announced earlier.

Tutorials to understand the format of the test will be available on the CAT website from October 2020.

T.I.M.E. will make sure that all its AIMCATs, going forward, will be as per the new pattern so that students get enough exposure to be able to handle any surprise that the CAT may throw at them.
