CAT 2020: Points to Remember before Entering Exam Center

Visit the Exam Centre Beforehand

In order to avoid last-minute confusion, candidates are requested to visit the Exam Center one day before the Exam. IIM Indore also provided the google map directions on the CAT e-admit card for convenience. Candidates can therefore easily locate the exam centre.

Reach on Reporting Time

Candidates arriving late at the exam centre will not be allowed to enter the CAT exam centre. The reporting time for each shift is indicated on the admit card and must be carefully checked by the candidates.

Bring Admit Card

One of the most important documents to be submitted by candidates on the day of the exam is the CAT admit Card. The bar code provided on the admit card will be scanned by the authorities for verification purposes. Keep the other necessary documents, too.
