New Delhi: Candidates who could not take the Common Admission Test (CAT) for the country’s top business schools due to technical gliches will be able to write the test again on 30-31 January.
The results of the test are likely to be declared by the third week of February, according to an announcement on the CAT website (http://catiim.in).
Technical disruptions in the first-ever online CAT for the premier Indian Institutes of Management and other business schools resulted in a large number of aspirants not being able to write their tests. The tests were conducted from 28 November to 8 December.
Prometric Testing Pvt. Ltd, the local arm of US-based Prometric Inc., which is conducting the online tests, said in the online announcement it will contact the candidates whose tests would be rescheduled by 10 January. It did not provide the number of candidates who will be retested.
The candidates eligible for the retest would include those who could not appear for the exam due to a closure of their test centres and were not rescheduled later; those who were rescheduled but could not take the test because of a notice of less than 48 hours; and those whose test was rescheduled in a city different from their original choice, the website announcement said.
