Management students across the nation have been putting in hard work and time in preparing for CAT 2019. Even though many students have been preparing from the beginning of the year, the CAT 2019 fever has only just started spreading like wildfire. This is because the application portal has finally been opened by the officials at IIM Kozhikode. This calls for aspirants to take a break from their preparation and focus on the registration process. While they focus on the application process, they may come across some dangerous myths relating to the exam. This article will bust these myths for you to ensure you remain prepared with only the truth. Let’s take a look at some common myths for CAT 2019 and the truth behind them:
Exam Date CAT 2019
Ever since CAT 2009, the examination body in the IIMs has been surprising applicants with the examination dates. This has caused many websites to anticipate the date for the exam in 2019 to be the 1st of December, 2019. However, this is inaccurate as the official date confirmed by authorities in IIM Kozhikode is the 24th of November, 2019.
The IIM entrance exam is conducted by one of the top 20 IIMs each year. This year, many have been speculating various IIMs to be the conducting body. The official confirmation, however, has stated IIM Kozhikode to be the conducting body for the exam.
Change in Examination Patterns
Some examination websites have been exploiting the worry of students in return for ad revenue. This is why they have stated that the examination pattern for CAT 2019 has been changed and will involve 120 or so questions. However, this is entirely false as IIM authorities have confirmed that there will be no changes in the examination pattern.
Extension of Final Registration Date: CAT 2019
The final registration date has been confirmed by IIM to be the 18th of September, 2019. This gives students almost a whole month to fill out the form. However, some rumors state that this date will be extended by IIM. While it is a possibility and not entirely false, applicants must not rely on this and must finish their registration as soon as possible.
Knowing that the above are mere myths would help you prepare for the entrance properly and will allow you to give your best in CAT 2019.
