What type of questions are asked in the CAT exam

Types of questions based on method of asking

Two types of questions are asked in the CAT exam:
1) Objective Type Questions
2) ‘Type in the Answer’ Type Questions

In objective type questions in the CAT exam, a CAT aspirant is supposed to select one correct option out of the given five options. If the candidate selects the correct option, he/she gets 3 marks. If the candidate selects the wrong option, 1 mark is deducted from his / her score. If the candidate does not attempt the question, 0 marks are allocated to his / her score for that particular question.

In ‘Type in the answer’ type questions, space is provided in which the candidate is supposed to enter his / her answer. If there is an exact match of the answer provided by the student with the correct answer, the candidate gets 3 marks. If there is not an exact match and/or the candidate chooses to skip the question, then the candidate gets 0 marks for that particular question.

Out of a total of 100 questions, approximately 70 questions are objective whereas 30 questions are ‘Type in the Answer’ type.
