CAT 2020 Exam Pattern - No update on the number of questions

With the CAT 2020 exam timing being reduced, the students were curious to know if the total number of questions would be reduced. However, putting an end to all such speculations, CAT 2020 convener Harshal Lowalekar has stated, “ CAT generally does not reveal the number or type of questions or the paper pattern. In fact, the CAT pattern is regularly changed so that the exam does not become predictable. However, it has already been announced on the CAT website that the number of sections this year will be three (40 minutes each).”

Lowalekar reiterated on taking the CAT mock tests and added, “To familiarise themselves with the different types of questions (MCQ/ non-MCQs) candidates are advised to take the mock test which would become available on the CAT website sometime in October.”

He further added that CAT is a competitive exam and only the relative performance of the candidate matters.
