IIM Calcutta will conduct the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2018 on November 25. The online registration for CAT has already commenced from August 8, 2018. As per recent reports, students filling the CAT Application Form are facing some issues while editing CAT 2018 Application Form. So, candidates who are worried about these issues need not worry as they can rectify the mistakes made in the application form. To know how to edit CAT application form successfully, read the article given below.
There are three ways to edit CAT 2018 application form. First, you can change the details entered in the application form before submitting the application fee. Second, you can register again before the last date of application. Third, you can also edit the data entered in the form after the submission of the application fee. One can choose any of the methods mentioned above to rectify their mistakes made in the form.
In the first case, if the candidate has made a mistake while filling the form before submission of fee, then you can edit the information entered as many times as they want. This facility is only available for those students who have not submitted the application form finally. Candidates can change all the information such as academic details, examination centers, course selected and other details in the form. However, there are some details such as candidate’s name, state, date of birth, email id and phone number which cannot be modified even before final submission of application form.
In case you find that you have entered incorrect information while registering for CAT 2018 then you are required to apply for CAT 2018 again. In this case, you need to apply for CAT again with a new email id. To avoid paying the application fee twice, it is advised that you must check the form twice.
In the third case, i.e., if the last date to apply for CAT 2018 is over or you have already paid the application fee, you need not worry as you can make the changes after the last date also. If there are mistakes apart from the registration details, then you need to wait for the CAT 2018 application form correction window. In this time period, students can edit the information like percentage of marks obtained, work experience, course details and test centers for further admission process. The correction window is expected to open 10 days after the last date of CAT 2018 registration. It will remain open for just 3 days. After the closing of correction window, no further request for change in information will be entertained.
Right now, there is no information regarding the opening of the correction window as it’s not confirmed by the examination conducting body. There are chances that the authorities will open the correction window. Though from the last two years, IIM has been opening this facility for the convenience of candidates. So, its been expected that the application correction window will also open this year.
As per experts, it’s been advised that you must not depend on the correction window. Before filling the CAT application form 2018, read the instruction manual carefully. There is ample time to fill the application form, so fill the application form patiently and fill the form before the last date i.e. September 19, 2018. The registration fee is Rs. 1900 (Rs. 950 for SC/ ST/ PwD Category candidates) which can be paid only in the online mode through Debit, Credit Cards or Net Banking and the application fee is non-refundable.
