Hello. For IIM Calcutta, in order to secure a seat for pgp program/mba, you should clear cat examination. The cat is an online test in which the level of difficulty varies every year. None of questions or question patterns are repeated.

I would suggest you to go through the basics and join a test series for preparation.

Hope this helps

All the best.
