The CAT 2021 Notification was released on July 31, 2021. CAT Exam Pattern is not specified in the Notification.

In the CAT Media Release, it was mentioned that the CAT makers are attempting to reduce the number of questions while the paper will be of 2 hours. CAT Exam is expected to have 64-76 total questions

*Since CAT 2020 had 76 questions rather than 100 questions like past year CAT exams, the marks have dropped in the overall scores. CAT 2020 reduced the time duration as well from 3 hours to 2 hours. CAT 2021 will likely follow the same paper pattern

CAT 2020 Analysis & Cut Off

The CAT 2020 Exam had 76 questions in total to be completed in 120 minutes. CAT 2020 was held in 3 slots and divided into 3 sections i.e. Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension (VARC), Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR), and Quantitative Aptitude (QA). 

All 3 Slots were similar in terms of the paper pattern, questions, and level of difficulty. In terms of the difficulty level, the VARC section was lengthy and tricky, the DILR section level was close to CAT 2017-18 DILR section and the QA section level was close to CAT 2019 QA section.
