Take your admit card without fail. Needless to say, without it, you won’t be allowed to enter the exam. The CAT admit card will be available until the date of the exam (till November 2021)
Valid ID Proof:
Here is the list of accepted ID proofs to take along with you while going to appear for the exam.
- College ID Proof
- Employer ID
- Voter I Card
- Driving License
- PAN Card
- Aadhar Card
Name Change Certificate:
If you changed your name within the process then carry the name change document with you to the exam center. So if this is applicable, then do carry the legal document with you.
Do not Carry anything Other than Admit Card and ID Proof:
Nothing except these two documents are allowed inside the center. Hence, you shouldn’t carry anything – not even your bags, or stationery items (since CAT is a computer-based test). Even shoes and jewelry are not allowed inside the exam center.
Do not Carry Calculator with You
For the non-MCQ type of questions, you will be given an on-screen calculator during the test.
Do not Carry a Watch or Timer with You
While taking test, the timing will be taken care by the on screen timer for each section. You won’t be allowed a watch inside the exam center.
Do not Carry any Personal Belonging with You
Personal belongings like bags, mobile phone, wallet etc are not allowed inside the exam center. If you get them, then you are going to leave them outside the center. Some centers might not be having the facility to guard your belongings and so, it’s better not to carry it at your center.
