    No,you cannot write CAT that is you are not eligible for the entrance as you are not graduate .But after 4 th year or when you are in 4 th year then you can write CAT.But after CAT you are eligible in IIM after you become a graduate .Although CAT entrance is very hard , so you must be very competitive.

    No, you are not eligible to write your CAT exam in 3rd year. You must have completed the graduation till 3rd year to appear in it. However, you can write CAT in 4th year of engineering. But start preparing for it from third year itself.
    Good Luck.

    1. 50% or more in graduation from a recognized university in case of gen/obc students.
    2. 45% or more in graduation from a recognized university for sc/st students.

    Re: Eligibility for appearing in CAT exam after B.Tech.?

    Surely you can give the CAT examination.CAT is an entrance examination.The score of this exam helps in getting the admission in good and reputed MBA colleges.


    The basic eligibility criteria for this exam is to have a graduation degree with minimum 50% marks in the aggregate.The final year students can also appear in this examination.


    CAT is COMMON ADMISSION TEST for the management programs.Held on third Sunday of November each year.CAT is conducted by the (IIMs) INDIAN INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENTS every year.



    Pattern of CAT:


    :-It Is multiple- choice based.

    :- Comprises of three sections and these three sections span the domains of arithmetical problem solving, geometry, statistics, data interpretation, logical reasoning, puzzles, and English language skills.
    -:Quantitative Ability (QA):-

    The questions are designed to stress more on reasoning skills of the candidates, rather than on their computational skills.

    The level of difficulty of this section is perceived to be higher because the questions are not only lengthy to read but at times require more effort in terms of understanding and solving.


    -ata Interpretation (DI):-



    As the name suggests, this section presents data to the candidate in forms such as caselets, pie diagrams, bar graphs, etc and questions are set to evaluate the
    candidate's skills at analyzing the given information.

    Data Sufficiency questions in this section are based on basic mathematics (at times Data Sufficiency is a part of the Quantitative Ability section).



    -:Reading Comprehension (RC):-



    CAT usually has 6-8 passages in the RC section, with an overall length of 4500-5500 words and about 50 questions to answer in a span of about 30 minutes. However this too can vary according to the level of difficulty of questions.


    -:Verbal Ability (VA):-



    This section explores your understanding of the English Language and also tests you on Reasoning Skills. The questions in this section typically comprise sentence correction, sentence sequencing, verbal reasoning etc


    As you are the 3rd year student of your B,tech so you are not eligible for this exam now.However you will be eligible later in this examination when you will be in your final year.


    !! Good Luck !!

    JSD

    Nicely you have selected the right examination. Considering at the moment you are in finally twelve months, by the point you are in independence day and also remaining twelve months within your engineering program, the actual appointments intended for CAT 2013 can come up. It can take place in all-around October following year. So as you're able submit an application if you are with one last twelve months solely, so apply for following summers CAT examination. Understand that though your current university will not be complete at the same time, although as soon as the benefits plus appointments intended for MBA everyone surface, your current university benefits will also are available up. So that you have to ranking above and also equal to 50% in that in order to get a chance on MBA admission. Now whenever you clear CAT, with no matter what institute you apply(where CAT ranking is definitely applicable) you'll have to clear many GD and also PI to be able to type in the MBA program. Please log onto http://www.catiim.in/ just after 5-6 weeks in order to load the actual CAT form online. The particular check-up will likely be a couple of working hours 20 a matter of minutes long. So start out preparing in matters connected with skills, oral reason, info model etc. If possible, after that carry out although, CAT planning books.
    Your bachelors level in every discipline coming from a identified college or university using not less than 50% scars plus 45% scars intended for
    SC/ST category candidates

    CAT is accomplished by way of Native american Commence connected with Supervision the major a lot of plus very placed management institute with Asia plus accept the actual ranking connected with CAT the front make sure ranking connected with CAT is definitely recognized with around Asia

    If you're pursuing finally twelve months within your engineering level you happen to be never eligible just be sure can be found in remaining twelve months you very well may submit an application just for this check-up and also for other people since MAT, XAT etc.

    You need to begin planning just for this assessment should you have structured intended for MBA just after your current bachelors level trying to provide not less than 5 working hours daily intended for planning
    Because the title indicates, this presents info for the selection with forms such as caselets, pie diagrams, pub index charts, etc plus inquiries will assess the
    candidate's skills at investigating the actual supplied information.

    Facts Sufficiency inquiries with this derive from standard numbers (at periods Facts Sufficiency is definitely an element of the Quantitative Capability section).

    CAT usually has 6-8 passages from the RC section, using a generally length of 4500-5500 thoughts contributing to 50 questions to answer within a lifetime of pertaining to 30 minutes. Having said that that could vary with respect to the stage connected with difficulty of questions.

    This section looks at knowing about it on the Language Expressions and in addition exams your self Reason Skills. The particular inquiries with this ordinarily include time period static correction, time period sequencing, oral reason etc
