IIMs CAT to test knowledge too, not just aptitude

The CAT format will be changed to test the candidate’s knowledge too and will not just limit on aptitude. In the new-format test, students will get 140 minutes to answer 60 questions spread equally over two sections, down from the earlier three. Candidates cannot move on to the next section till 70 minutes are over, unlike last year, when they had 135 minutes to attempt the same number of questions without any section-wise time restriction. The section-wise time allocation will end race against time in the exam which always puts speed at a premium.
