  • The phone number and email Id provided must be correct as all information regarding the CAT exam, even the post-exam details such as result, IIM call letter, interview call will be conveyed to the candidate on it only.

  • Do preview the CAT application form at every step as and when the pop-up shows. Do not wait for the correction window to edit CAT form details, as only a few details can be edited later.

  • Do not get confused that your CAT registration is successful till you pay the CAT application fee. Also, download the CAT registration acknowledgment slip for future reference.

  • Choose CAT exam centers wisely. There are six options to fill the CAT test cities, so opt for the one where you can conveniently travel as the exam stress will add up to the long-distance travelling tiredness.
