Things to Remember Inside CAT Exam Center

CAT 2022 exam is a computer-based test that will be held tentatively in the month of November-December 2022. Several cities will be holding the exams in different centres. It’s normal for the candidates to be anxious on the exam day, while they might miss these guidelines while going to the exam.
Follow these rules to prepare and be prepared to go to the exam centre. With these tips at hand, one can stave off their jittery stomach. Here are some of the things to be kept in mind on the day of the exam.

  1. Admit Card:

    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 2022)

  2. 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
  • Passport
  • Aadhar Card
  1. Name Change Certificate:

    If you changed your name within the process then carry the name change document with you to the exam centre. So if this is applicable, then do carry the legal document with you.

  2. Do not Carry anything Other than Admit Card and ID Proof:

    Nothing except these two documents are allowed inside the centre. Hence, you shouldn’t carry anything – not even your bags, or stationery items (since CAT is a computer-based test). Even shoes and jewellery are not allowed inside the exam centre.

  3. Do not Carry Calculator with You

    For the non-MCQ type of questions, you will be given an on-screen calculator during the test.

  4. Do not Carry a Watch or Timer with You

    While taking the test, the timing will be taken care of by the on-screen timer for each section. You won’t be allowed a watch inside the exam centre.

  5. Do not Carry any Personal Belonging with You

    Personal belongings like bags, mobile phones, wallets etc are not allowed inside the exam centre. If you get them, then you are going to leave them outside the centre. Some centres might not be having the facility to guard your belongings and so, it’s better not to carry them at your centre.
