  1. Name: Make sure the name that you mentioned in the CAT application form 2024 is the same name that is printed on the CAT admit card 2024. Additionally, it should be correct and match with the one on your identification ID (Aadhar Card, Voter ID, Driving License, etc.).
  2. Registration Number: Check and match the CAT registration number with the CAT 2024 application form. Remember that this registration is going to be used till your interviews. So make sure there is no discrepancy.
  3. Photograph: It has been seen multiple times that the photograph in the CAT admit card is missing or rotated. If it is missing, please inform the conducting body immediately. However, if it is rotated, it is usually acceptable but for the safe side, do send an email to the conducting body.
