Forgot the ID / password ? People (like me) who invariably may have forgotten the password (I never forget ID) created during the registration process earlier, have no worries. You can try the “Forgot User ID / Password?” link
Download the admit card and save it, (better still mail it to yourself) for easy retrieval.
Verify all the details on it carefully and in case of any discrepancy do the needful to rectify it.
The admit card will have all the important exam related details like personal details, venue, timings, rules and so on. The usefulness of the admit card doesn’t end after the D Day i.e Nov 21st Sunday the day of the CAT 2021 exam. It must be retained safely even after the exam ends as it would help in checking the results.
Also note as per the rule applicants must bring a scanned copy of their admit card as well as the following documents to the exam centre: One government-issued photo ID card essentially – a Voter Id, Aadhaar Card, Passport, Driving License.
The COVID-19 undertaking has to be filled and signed by the candidate to be submitted at the CAT exam venue.
Candidates will not be permitted to appear for the exam with the “scanned copy” of the admit card.
(I wish there was a similar video for on this, like the one for registration purpose)
Some more information (picked up from CAT 2021 official site which I feel is important) that might be helpful :
- The format of the test will remain same as last year, i.e. there will be three shifts of 2-hour examination comprising three sections: i) Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension, ii) Quantitative Ability, and iii) Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning.
- Candidates will be given 40 minutes for each section
- PwD candidates will get 13 minutes and 20 seconds extra for each section.
- Last year’s CAT format changes were necessitated due to Covid-19 pandemic.
- Considering that there could have been time pressure to complete the CAT exam last year on account of changes made, for CAT 2021 the CAT Committee is making an attempt in reducing the number of questions across all the three sections – QA, DILR and VARC.
- CAT 2021 is scheduled to be conducted at over 400 Test Centres, spread across 159 cities in India on 28 November 2021.
- Mock Test/Tutorials to understand the format of the test will be available on the CAT website from the last week of October 2021. Candidates are advised to work on the tutorials available on the CAT website well in advance.
(Please add if I have missed anything important)
Have a great Diwali. But remember to stay safe and avoid large gatherings.
ALL THE BEST !
