Question Paper Pattern
C-CAT has three sections (Section A, Section B, Section C) of one hour duration each. Depending on the category of courses selected by the candidate, he/she will have to either appear for two test papers (Section A and Section B) or all the three test papers (Section A, Section B and Section C). 

The medium of C-CAT is English.

Every section in C-CAT will have 50 objective-type questions. Each question will have four choices as possible answers of which only one will be correct. There will be +3 (plus three) marks for each correct answer, -1 (minus one) for each wrong answer, and 0 (zero) marks for each un-attempted question. The maximum mark a candidate can obtain in any one section of CCAT is 150.

C-CAT Ranking

Candidates will be provided ranks based on their performances in Sections A+B, Sections A+B+C of C-CAT. If a candidate appears for both categories II and III in C-CAT and qualifies in them, he/she will be provided separate ranks in Category II and Category III.

Candidates with the lowest 10% performances in section A, section B, and section C of CCAT will not be qualified for ranking. Even after the removal of the lowest performers as stated above, if there exist candidates in any section with zero or less than zero marks, then these candidates will also not be qualified for ranking.

Qualified candidates who have selected Category II in the C-CAT application form will be awarded Category II rank based on their performance in Sections A+B. Qualified candidates who have selected Category III will obtain Category II and III ranks based on their performances in Sections A+B and A+B+C.
