CUSAT COMMON ADMISSION TEST (CAT)

Marks and Scoring

The CAT score will be calculated as per the formula, S = 3R – 1W, where S is the CAT score, R is the number of right answers and W is the number of wrong answers. Negative marks will be given for each wrong answer. In case of a tie, the existing University norms will be followed.

The Structure of CAT

The CAT comprises the following:

  • Test for B.Tech and M.Sc Photonics 101
  • LET 102
  • Aptitude Test for B.B.A LL.B. (Hons.) 201
  • Test for M.A. Hindi 301
  • Aptitude Test for MBA (FT.) / (P.T.), MBA (IB.) & M.B.A. (T.T.) 401
  • Aptitude Test for MCA 501
  • Biotechnology 601
  • Botany 602
  • Chemical Engineering 603
  • Chemistry 604
  • Electronic Science 606
  • Engineering Science 607Fisheries 608
  • Geology 609
  • Law (for LL. M) 610
  • Life Sciences 611
  • Mathematics 612
  • Physics 613
  • Statistics 614
  • Zoology 615
  • M.A. Applied Economics 616

Group Discussion and Interview

Applicants for B.B.A. LL.B. (Hons.), LL.M., M.B.A (Full-time) / M.B.A (Part-time), M.B.A (International Business), M.B.A. (T.T.) & M.Sc. Industrial Fisheries will be short-listed on the basis of their performance at the CAT and will be required to attend Group Discussion and / or Interview.

CAT Rank Lists

Rank lists for B.B.A. L.L.B. (Hons.), LL.M., M.B.A (Full-time) / (Part-time), M.B.A (International Business) M.B.A. (T.T.) & M.Sc. Industrial Fisheries are prepared on the combined basis of the CAT score, performance at Group Discussion and / or Interview as indicated below :

B.B.A.LL.B.(Hons), LL.M., M.B.A (FT) / (P.T), M.B.A (International Business) & M.B.A. (Travel & Tourism)

CAT Score 70% + Group Discussion 15% + Interview 15% = Total 100

M.Sc. Industrial Fisheries

CAT Score 85% + Interview 15% = Total 100

For all other programmes the marks secured at the Common Admission Test in the subject that qualifies the candidate for admission to the programme alone will be considered for preparing the Rank list. However, in the case of programmes where multi-disciplinary Tests are conducted, rank lists are drawn up on the basis of the Percentile Index determined by the formula,
n-p/n x100 where n is the number of candidates appearing for the Test in a particular subject and p is the position according to the CAT score. The Percentile Indices are then integrated to obtain the relative position of the candidate in the rank list for that particular programme.

Candidates, appearing for Test 101, Test for First Degree programmes in Engineering and Technology, should have scored a minimum of ten marks in each of the papers (101-MA and 101-PC) to be eligible to figure in the respective rank list. This requirement of minimum marks, however, will not be applicable for candidates coming under SC/ST communities.
