The CAT 2014 will give an option to prefer three test cities in the order of preference.

Besides 13 IIMs who consider only valid CAT scores, there are other 106 top B schools who will accept CAT scores for their MBA programs.
The difference between the paper and pencil test and the online test is that now the tests are conducted online otherwise, almost everything remains the same. Candidates are provided with sheets for rough calculations. The right answer is clicked using the mouse. Candidates can also scroll the entire paper and start from wherever they want. Likewise they can also change their answers. But all these has to be completed within stipulated time as there will be an on-screen countdown timer For each section. Once the time ends for the first section, candidates will move on to the second without having the option of being able to come back.
