CAT 2018 Answer Key Objection Filing

IIM Calcutta has notified the last date to raise an objection in CAT 2018 Question Paper PDF. The institute has released the answer key on December 07, 2018 at 11:00 AM. So, candidates who have appeared for the CAT 2018 entrance examination can file the objections (if any) on the official answer key until December 10, 2018 (5:00 PM).

Until 07 December, the exam conducting body hasn’t revealed the last date to file the objections. Thus, students can file the objections in a three-day objection filing window. As there are only a few days to raise the doubts, candidates must check if there is any discrepancy in the answer key. Before raising the objection, consult the fellow test takers or teacher also.

The objection raising window is available at the CAT 2018 students’ login. Therein click on “objection form” and the new window will open. In there, enter the exam shift, section name, question id, nature of the objection, and remarks. If required upload the necessary documents in jpg/ jpeg/ png/ pdf format. Finally, Pay and Submit to file the objection.

Importantly, candidates will able to file one objection at a time. For more than one doubt, follow the complete process again. Students can file as many doubt they want. The doubt could be “none of the options is the correct answer”, “more than one option is a correct answer”, or “answer Key is incorrect”.

Once the objection window closes, the exam conducting body will consider all the doubts. If the raised objections proved to be true, then the same will be reflected in the final answer key. For the valid objections, the exam body will refund the objection money to the candidate via the same channel.

This year, the objection fee is Rs1200/- per question excluding the transaction and GST charges. It is advisable that candidates raise the doubt when they are absolutely sure about it. The one thing changed this year is the change in the objection fee. It has been increased by Rs 200/- from the last year.


On the basis of final answer key, the CAT 2018 Result will release in the first week of January 2019. Candidates will able to check their scaled score and percentile in each section. The final percentile will be calculated on the basis of scores scaled through the normalization process. This process will also be done to calculate sectional percentile.

In most of the CAT 2018 score accepting institutes, it is important to clear sectional and overall cut-off. IIMs have already released their minimum percentile scores required to appear in the selection process. Importantly, only candidates who have a raw score above zero will be considered for shortlisting. The list for the candidates selected for the Analytical Writing Test (AWT)/ Writing Ability Test (WAT)/ Group Discussion (GD)/ Personal Interview (PI) will release on or after the declaration of the exam result.
