    SC/ST /PWD (DA)

    Rs. 950/-

    Last year IIM Lucknow made it mandatory to pay an application fee to Rs. 1800/- from the previous year CAT registration fee of Rs. 1700/-. For the other reserved category aspirants the application fee for CAT exams was Rs. 900/- only.

    Perks for Women Candidates

    As per the recent guidelines, female candidates will get an opportunity to take the test in their domicile city. This move is aimed at encouraging the female candidates take the test eagerly and would also invite more participation from both the genders without a bias.

    This perk is also aimed at enhancing the gender diversity in the IIMs. It is expected that after this announcement the absentee ratio among the female candidates to take the exam will gradually reduce. When the first time this initiative commenced in 2015, it became a hit and an increase in the attendance of females was quite evident.

    For other candidates, CAT will provide an opportunity to choose upto 4 test centers depending upon the convenience of the candidate. The final decision to allot the test center is reserved with the exam conducting body i.e. IIM Calcutta.
