CAT 2009 : Test Duration and Pattern

According to the notification on the CAT 2009 website, the duration of the online test will be 2 hours and 15 minutes instead of 2 hours and 30 minutes. While there has been a 15 minute reduction in the test duration, the number of questions will also reduce by 25-30% ( test takers will be asked 60-70 questions this year).

What are your thoughts about this new format? Does this anouncement raise more questions than answers? Let us know by writing to
