Challenging CAT Answer Key

As CAT is a computer based test, an official answer key will not be released by the examination authority i.e. IIM Lucknow. Generally, answer keys are released for those exams which are held in pen and paper mode and students can take the question papers after the exam. So, it is difficult for the students to get an official CAT answer key.

However, all top CAT coaching institutes publish answer keys. But, they do not guarantee any authenticity. So, the candidates cannot challenge CAT answer key as it is not officially released by any IIM institute.
