The pattern of the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2015 to be hung on November 29 for admissions to prestigious B-schools has been changed to give an "even" field to aspirants from dissimilar streams and for a superior evaluation of information translation capacity.
As against two sections last year, there would be three segments in the exam to be held, in particular, Quantitative Aptitude (QA), Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning (DILR) and Verbal and Reading Comprehension (VRC).
The test will be held in two sessions on November 29 and results will be reported in the second week of January 2016, an announcement said.
"A few inquiries in every segment may not be of numerous decision sort. Rather, direct answers are to be written on the screen," CAT 2015 Convenor Tathagata Bandyopadhyay said in the announcement.
While, QA and VRC will have 34 question each, DILR will have 32 questions.
A year ago, information elucidation was a piece of QA and legitimate thinking was a piece of VRC.
The duration of time of the examination has been expanded to 180 minutes from 170 minutes, the announcement said.
The applicants will be apportioned precisely an hour for noting inquiries in every segment and they can't change starting with one section then onto the next while noting question.
The utilization of fundamental onscreen adding machine for calculation would be permitted.
Executive of IIM-Rohtak P Rameshan felt the adjustment in organization may acquire more judiciousness and differing qualities in gender orientation and scholarly foundation as there would be composed answers as well.
The CAT exam has been condemned for being skewed towards applicants from engineering background yet the progressions could give an "even field to aspirants originating from diverse streams", said an IIM staff.
A previous IIM executive said the progressions would help in better appraisal of how the future chiefs can gather information from numerous sources and comprehend it.
Enlistment for CAT 2015 will begin on August 6 and hopefuls can download their concede card from October 15.
