The Common Admission Test (CAT) 2015 is scheduled to be conducted on November 20 by the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIM- A).
IIM-A will be releasing a sample test at the official website for candidates so that they can evaluate their preparation and get a better idea regarding the paper pattern. The sample test is expected to get released on October 31. It would determine the exact changed pattern and difficulty level of CAT 2015.
The test, which has been conducted on multiple days over two sessions since 2009, when it became computer-based, will now be conducted in many sessions in a single day.
"Some questions in each section may not be of multiple choice type. Instead, direct answers are to be typed on the screen," CAT 2015 Convenor Tathagata Bandyopadhyay said in the statement.
For the first time in the history of CAT, transgenders have also registered for the exam. It has been after 5 years that such huge number of registrations have been observed.
In order to appear for the test, it is mandatory for the aspirants to have the admit cards with them, failing which they will not be allowed to attempt the paper. The results for CAT 2015 will be declared in January. This year CAT is expected to have high level of difficulty.
