CAT(Common Admission Test)
CAT consists of two parts Part I and Part II consisting of objective type questions. Part I of CAT for post-graduate programmes including B.Tech. courses in Polymer Science and Rubber Technology and Instrumentation will be based on a subject that qualifies the candidates for the course which he/she is seeking admission and the candidate has to specify the subject(s) he/she is seeking under Part II.

For B.Tech. courses for exception of Polymer Science and Rubber Technology and Instrumentation, Part II will consist of three sections one each in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. For courses like M.B.A. , L.L.B. , M.B.F. etc. where graduates of any discipline are eligible to apply, Part II paper will be specific to the corresponding course. Those who have applied for such courses will have to take a separate Part II examination that qualifies them for other subjects in Table. All questions wil contain questions that are objective in nature. M.B.F candidates have to write the same Part II as that of M.B.A. viz, Management Aptitude.
