    What is CAT ?

    Common Admission Test (CAT) is an all India Entrance test conducted by IIMs.

    Why CAT ?

    The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) started this exam and is a pre-requisite for selecting students for their business administration programs.

    How CAT is being conducted ?

    This computer-based test is conducted by the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) for admission to their 2-year full time postgraduate programs in management.

    Which other colleges accept CAT scores ?

    Other Indian business schools like IITs, FMS, S P Jain, MDI, and NITIE also accept CAT scores as part of their selection process. From 2009 onwards, CAT became a computer based test wherein subjects are subdivided into different areas i.e.: Quantitative Ability, Data Interpretation, Data Sufficiency, Logical Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Verbal Reasoning and Verbal Ability.
