New Delhi: With an aim to bring about greater accuracy and international standards to the Common Admission Test (CAT), the agency organising the examination has planned to introduce different sets of question papers from this year.
“Each question paper will be a little different from the other, but its evaluation would be done on the same scale,” Managing Director of Prometric, Soumitra Roy said.
“Since each question paper will be different, it might be possible that some questions are tougher than others. We’ll keep this in mind while conducting evaluation,” informed Roy.
He said the agency has made special arrangements to maintain accuracy and impartiality while testing students in the CAT 2010 examination.
The CAT examination will be held between October 27 and November 24 in 33 cities in the country. The duration of the exam will be two-and-a-half hours. The results will be declared on January 12, 2011.
Last year, the CAT exam was held online and had reported several technical glitches, raising doubts about the new method.
