summary

IIM Ahmedabad conducted its entrance exam this year

The number of questions has been reduced to about 66

The Common Admission Test (CAT) 2021 was conducted across the country on the 28th of November by the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad.

The institute followed the same exam format as the year 2020 but reduced the number of questions to make the entrance exam less long.

CAT 2021 was held in three slots in computer-based mode. Slot 1 was conducted from 8.30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Slot 2 from 12.30pm to 2.30pm and slot 3 from 4.30pm to 6.30pm.

The number of questions has been reduced to about 66.

The paper was rated “Moderate” by students who took the Slot 1 test. Students who took the Slot 2 test said the English and Quality Assurance sections were easier than the other components.

Here’s how to find out your percentage score:

  • Calculate the total number of candidates (N) who appeared for the CAT.
  • Assign a rank (r), based on the measured scores obtained in the QA section, to all candidates who appeared in the CAT. In the event that two or more candidates have identical grades in the QA department, assign identical ranks to all such candidates.
  • Calculate the percentage score (P) for a candidate with rank (r) in the QA department as P = [(N − r)/N] × 100
  • Rounds the calculated percentage score (P) for the filter to two decimal points

The CAT 2021 paper included two types of questions – MCQs and TITAs, or non-MCQs. MCQs come with a negative flag and TITA does not have a negative flag. This year, 3 points will be awarded for each correct answer and 1/3 will be deducted for each incorrect answer.

At the time of assessment, the initial scores are calculated and then measured and standardized according to the Score Calculation. For this, the score obtained by the candidate in a particular section will be taken and then normalized against the maximum score in that section.
