For the first time, there were digital campaigns to create awareness about the opening of CAT 2022 applications and on the extension of the deadline in order to reach a younger and targeted demographic.

CAT 2022 Chairperson Professor Ashis Mishra said, "Student-centric changes will enhance the registration and other processes of CAT, thereby making it possible for the candidates to focus on preparing for the examination itself."

Announcements of CAT 2022 were released in publications in the Northeast and in all Union Territories. Test centres have also been set up in new locations - Northeast (Manipur, Tripura, etc.) and Union Territories (Lakshadweep, Dadra, Nagar Haveli, Daman and Diu, Ladakh and Leh). Two payment gateways were provided for CAT 2022. This allowed the students to experience hassle-free registration.

This year, a non-IIM registration facility has been provided on the CAT website. Non-IIM institution logos have also been placed on the CAT website to enhance their visibility.

CAT 2022 will be conducted in test centres in 150 test cities in the country. Candidates have been given the option to select any six test cities in order of their preference. Candidates must declare and maintain a valid and unique e-mail account and a mobile phone number throughout the selection process.

The computer-based test will be conducted on November 27, 2022, in three separate sessions. Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension, Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning, and Quantitative Ability will be assessed in the CAT 2022 exam.

Professor Ashis Mishra said, "The preparations and the conduct of the examination are being done with continued COVID-19 uncertainty. The information provided on the CAT website is contingent upon the decisions and directions issued from time to time by the Central and State governments, and IIMs. Candidates are advised to check the CAT website regularly for the latest information."

IMPORTANT DATES:

  • Admit cards may be downloaded from 5 pm on October 27, 2022
  • CAT 2022 results are expected to be declared around the second week of January 2023

After the closure of the registration window, the 'Edit Window' was live from 10 am on September 23, 2022 to 5 pm on September 26, 2022. Only photo, signature and test city preferences could be changed. Candidates were also able to choose Imphal (Manipur) as the preferred city for CAT 2022.
