The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) had earlier declared that the registration window will be open from July 29 to September 26.
Similar to last year’s exam, CAT 2013 will have two sections. The first will focus on quantitative ability and data interpretation and the second on verbal ability and logical reasoning.
These two sections will be implemented sequentially with separate time limits. The examination will be for 140 minutes.
Candidates will have 70 minutes to answer 30 questions within each section, which will have an on-screen countdown timer.
Once the time ends for the first section, they will move to the second and will be unable to go back, the statement said.
