CDAC's C-CAT


Admissions to all PG Diploma courses of C-DAC are done through C-DAC's Computerised Common Admission Test (C-CAT). Candidates have to apply for C-CAT online at www.cdac.in. Every year, C-CAT is usually conducted in June(for August admissions) and December (for February admissions). Candidates who clear the June 2014 C-CAT will only be considered for admission to C-DAC's PG Diploma courses of August 2014 batch on the basis of their C-CAT ranks and centre/course preferences.
5.1 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). The medium of C-CAT is 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.

Candidates will be provided ranks based on their performance in Section A, Sections A+B, Sections A+B+C of C-CAT. Along with the ranks, information on how many candidates are there above him/her in the courses applied will also be indicated.

If a candidate appears for multiple sections, he/she will be provided multiple ranks depending on his/her choice of courses at the time of filling the application form. For example, if a candidate appears for Sections A and B and had chosen courses under Category I and Category II in the application form, he/she shall be provided two ranks: (i) based on the performance in Section A, and (ii) based on the performance in Sections A+B. However, if a candidate appears for Sections A and B but had chosen only courses under Category II in the application form, he/she will be provided only one rank based on the performance in Sections A+B.

Candidates with the lowest 10% performances in Section A, Section B and Section C will not be considered for ranking in any category. Even after the removal of the lowest 10% performers as stated above, if there exist candidates in any category with zero or less than zero marks, then these candidates are also not considered for ranking. The remaining candidates will be ranked based on their performance in Section A (for candidates who have applied for Category I courses), total performance in Sections A+B (for candidates who have applied for Category II courses), and total performance in Sections A+B+C (for candidates who have applied for Category III courses).

If two or more candidates have acquired the same marks in Section A or Sections A+B or Sections A+B+C, then the candidate having more marks in Section A will be given the higher rank. If these candidates have the same marks in Section A also, then the candidate having higher value in the ratio of 'number of correct answers / number of attempted questions' in the specific section required only for that category of courses will be given the higher rank. Candidates who have the same value of this ratio and having the same total marks as well as marks in Section A will be given the same rank. 

Admissions to C-DAC’s PG Diploma courses at various training centres will be offered in the order of ranks obtained in C-CAT and based on the preferences of courses and centres given by the candidates. Only those candidates who are in the C-CAT rank-list will be considered for admissions to C-DAC's PG Diploma courses.

Rank-lists of June 2014 C-CAT are only applicable for admission to the August 2014 intake of C-DAC's PG Diploma courses. Candidates should note that mere appearance in C-CAT or being in any of the rank-lists neither guarantees nor provides any automatic entitlement to admission. Qualified candidates will have to apply for admission as per the prescribed procedure.
