    Hello,
    No friend, CAT exam is no longer available on the paper. It is now an online paper, which has been started for last 2 years. It is now organized with Prometric and is now a computer adapted test. There are following information that will help you to understand well about online CAT format, how screen appears etc as follows-
    • The "Total exam time", "your time consumption" and "remaining time" will be shown on TOP Right of the screen.
    • You can "PAUSE" the exam at any point of time and can continue latter. Once you restart the exam your time will start from the point where you paused.
    • Generally questions are displayed in sequence based on the subjects. You have an option to choose subjects on Top left.
    • All attempted questions will be displayed in RED color and non-attempted are displayed in Black Color. You can select them to view and edit.
    • Once the question is displayed you can choose any one answer and click on “SUBMIT ANSWER”. If you didn’t click on submit answer then your answer will not be stored.
    • You can clear selected answer by clicking on “CLEAR SELECTION” button on right side of the question.
    • You can go to next question by clicking Next, You can go to previous question by clicking Previous, You can go to first question by clicking on first and last question by clicking on Last
    • Once you reached the last question you will get Finish button. By clicking on finish button you can finish the exam and prompted to your analysis report.
    Note : If you click on FINISH Button you can’t write exam later even you have time and questions to write
    Hope these points will help you in better understanding about online CAT and you will give you 100% to it. Because it is as simple as offline. so go for it...good luck

    Thank you

    Re: Can one opt for offline mode of examination in CAT exam?

    Hi there,
    I am extremely sorry to inform you that CAT is no longer a paper and pen based test. It is precisely a computer based online exam and unlike MAT it has no such option of an offline mode with it. I think you are apprehensive regarding the computer adjustability for which i would like to advise you that it does not require any proficient or skilled usage of the machine and it is just like acquaintance with the computer devices and normal working procedure.
    You can consult any online test exam site and can even enroll yourself in many of the mock CAT test series by various coaching centers. and after giving a few test you would be just fine. All the Best.

    Re: Can one opt for offline mode of examination in CAT exam?

    Hello friend .......

    According to me CAT is no longer a pen and paper based examination . It is now a computer-based test (CBT) and not an Internet-based test (IBT). Which means that candidate will not be sitting on the internet and giving the exam but instead of the physical question paper and giving the answers by darkening the ovals you will just have to read the questions on a computer terminal and choose an answer by clicking on the correct option.

    So my friend , from now onwards you cannot opt for the offline mode of the examination in the CAT exam.

    Now CAT stands for the Common Admission Test which is conducted every year for the admission in the various IIMs and the other universities and colleges for pursuing the MBA/PGDM degree courses.

    So friend , there is nothing to worry . You can now join in the various test series available from a number of coaching centers like TIME , CAREER LAUNCHER , BRILLIANT TUTORIALS etc which provides the CBT (Computer Based Test) which would help you in making accustomed to the original test.

    Hope this would help you.

    Best of luck for the CAT exam.

    Regards

    Re: Can one opt for offline mode of examination in CAT exam?

    hi..the cat examination is an strictly computer based examination and there is no way that you can write the examination in the offline mode or pencil and paper way that is an thing of past ,they have done this to save lots of paper and also to save the time consumed in evaluation of the sheets because you can know your score immediately as soon as your examination is over because the answers of the questions given to you would be fed into the system even before the examination begins .
    there is an huge debate that making the cat examination online has made it bit easier because there has to be many number of questions but the organizaing committee of the cat examination has made sure that there is no such problem and all the questions asked are of similar level,
    you need an lots of practice for the computer based test to answer the question on the computer and meticulous planning to save the time ,there have been many instances of computer hanging and or the computers given for the examination not being efficiently fast to your levels ,so you need to practice a lot on the computers .
    first thing you should know is how to manage your desk because in speed you can through your pencils here and there and there can be lots of time waste in searching for them ,also the rough sheet provided for the cat examination in the examination center is limited and you have to use it to the maximum extent and dont write the things too big so that it gets over immediately ,
    also you should have practice of operating the computers because there should be no such situation that you get stuck with the computer or changing the page on the computer ,
    you can all the detailed information about the cat examination and also model practice papers at the following link :http://www.catiim.in/

    dear friend.
    sorry to say, but no one can opt the cat test in any other mode except online mode.
    if you feel uncomfortable with that, than you can join any on-line test series. this will give you the confidence and you will be able to score a good marks in the cat exam also.
    if you will not go for that than you cant give cat exams and cant get a very good colleges which you can through cat.
    so think about it and then decide what you want to do.
    all the best.
