CAT 2023 Exam Syllabus

Although the exam’s syllabus is not predetermined by IIMs, it generally assesses a candidate’s verbal and reading comprehension skills, quantitative aptitude, and their ability to interpret data and use logic. The CAT exam syllabus has seen significant alteration during the past five years. Major adjustments to the Syllabus 2023 include:

  • The syllabus has been revised, and it now includes a variety of questions that include MCQs and non-MCQs.
  • 25–30% of questions no longer carry a penalty.
  • As more questions are focused on reading comprehension than verbal ability, the Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension Sections of the syllabus have undergone the most changes.
  • The Quantitative Ability component of the syllabus has seen some revisions, with an increased emphasis on questions requiring arithmetic.
