From the 2012-13 academic year, admissions to all PG Diploma courses of C-DAC are done through C-DAC's Common Admission Test (C-CAT). Candidates have to apply for C-CAT online at www.cdac.in.

C-CAT Test Papers


C-CAT has three sections (Section A, Section B, Section C) of one hour duration each. As shown in Table 2, depending on the course(s) applied by the candidate, he/she will have to either appear for just one test paper (Section A) or two test papers (Section A and Section B) or all the three test papers (Section A, Section B and Section C). Table 3 indicates the syllabus of the different sections of test papers in C-CAT. The medium for all the test papers will be English


Important Note: A candidate can appear only for the specific section(s) in C-CAT as per the course(s) opted by him/her at the time of filling the online application form. 


Every section will have 50 objective-type questions of 3 marks each (maximum 150 marks for any one section). Each objective-type question in C-CAT 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 and -1 (minus one) for each wrong answer. Multiple answers to a question will be treated as a wrong answer. For each un-attempted question, 0 (zero) mark will be awarded.
