MBA candidates have a lot on their plate and, in the chaos, it is easy to forget the User ID and Password of their CAT Application form. Luckily, it is equally easy to recover them.

How to Recover CAT Login ID and Password

The application process for CAT 2022 is pretty straightforward. Candidates have to fill in all of the details, upload their photograph and signature, pay the application fee, and submit the application form.

However, before a candidate can move on to fill out the CAT application form, they are first required to register on the application portal of CAT. Once a candidate has provided their details (such as name, date of birth, email ID, etc.) and submitted the OTP received on their email ID and password (after completing a captcha), they can pat themselves on the back as they have completed the first step for taking admission to an Indian Institute of Management.

Meanwhile, the CAT admit card 2022 will be made available on October 27, 2022, at 5 PM.
