Important Updates

CAT pattern has undergone a change with major changes include –

  • Two sections instead of three.
  • Increase in time – 140 minutes in total.
  • Quant and DI together form one section.
  • Verbal and LR to form another section.
  • Each section will have a time limit of 70 minutes.
  • On screen countdown timer for each section.
  • 30 questions in each section.

The forms are not out yet for CAT. Some changes as per our opinion that would ensue –


  • More benefit for commerce stream students.
  • Change in strategy for students.
  • May alter diversification pattern for IIMs.
  • Importance of Test Series increases.
  • Change is the only constant – students should be flexible and forthcoming.
  • Verbal Ability becomes more crucial.
  • Old advice based on previous 2 years may go for a six.

What would not change –

  • The manner of study.
  • Better time management as was observed in online avatar.
  • Basics as always are of prime importance.
