The first 4 papers of CAT are Computer Based Exams (CBE). Although written exams are also available for the first 4 papers but mosts students choose to attempt them through CBE. Paper 5 "Managing People and Systems" will be a written exam which you will have to attempt in December. As i understand from the link below, u will have to clear T1-T4 before 30 September in order to register for T5(written exam) for the December session.
I would however urge you to confirm this info from ACCA office in your city as soon as possible. Do ask them the details about the Extended Registration Deadline. Confirm from them that whether the deadline is 31 August or 30 September?

T1-T4 are generally considered to be easy papers. Most of the people i know have cleared it in their first attempt. The result varies from person to person and the level of effort one has placed.

The following link shows the passing rates of the CAT papers. They are the passing rates of the written exams and not the CBEs.

The syllabus of the CAT exams are available on the following link

Is it possible to clear T1-t4 in my first attempt if i work hard i've only got august and september month now for preparation of these four papers.

It is not impossible but very difficult. You should take a look at the CAT Study texts and the syllabus and assess that whether you will be able to manage it or not in such a short period of time.

Anyhow, first of all register as a CAT student as soon as possible.

Secondly, confirm from ACCA that what is the deadline for CBE registration in order to attempt T5 in December. If the deadline is 30 September, then attempt T1 and T2 by 31 August. And then attempt T3 and T4 by 30 September.

I don't understand, Are CAT papers held by every month or what? I want to complete 5 papers of Cat as soon as possible. can I take 2 papers in a month and then 2 other papers in a month and then the last 5th paper in another two months time?

T1-T4 are Computer Based Exams (CBE). They are held every day of the week(except for Saturdays and Sundays). You can register for it in any CBE institute, whenever you feel prepared. i guess, SKANS is a registered CBE institute.
