Image Edit Option in CAT 2018: First Ever facility
This type of error was not editable during the earlier CAT error edit window and is provided for the first time. Last year also, IIM Lucknow which conducted CAT had informed that there was no provision to change the photo during edit window.

In past exams, many candidates who uploaded their blur photographs, or photographs with blue back ground, without proper contrast or other minor issues approached MBAUniverse.com raising their concern how to replace their photographs. The issue was raised before the CAT convening IIM Lucknow who did not allow to replace such images but assured that the CAT application form would not be rejected on this ground.

IIM Calcutta, however, has taken cognizance of this problem and has specifically allowed the CAT 2018 applicants to re-upload their photographs on CAT application form during 4 days edit window from September 27 to 30, 2018 till 5 PM.

You cannot edit other errors in CAT 2018 application form. IIM Calcutta has not opened any such error correction window to edit other errors in CAT application form. If you have made mistakes in personal details, please note that you will not receive a refund or Admit Card for your registration. The best way is to contact CAT 2018 help desk and get the solution from them.

The CAT 2018 exam is on November 25 and the CAT admit card will be available for download from October 24, 2018 onwards.
