Number of days on which CAT will be conducted – 20 days
Examination window : October 27 to November 23
Major decisions which have been taken this time include increase in the number of days for conducting test — from 10 days to 20 days this year.
The IIMs have also decided to give the test centres a 15-day-time to test their system compatibility and at the same time ensuring that all those, who answer CAT helplines, managed by Prometric, are well versed in both English and Hindi. Technical breaks will also be given in between the CAT schedule, which will take place from October 27 to November 23 this year.
“Last year, for the first time the new system was introduced and we were not aware of the exact nature of the challenges that might surface. But after reviewing the complaints of last year, we have decided to make some changes aiming at better CAT-2010,” said Himanshu Rai, Chairman, Admission Cell at IIM-Lucknow.
The Common Admission Test or CAT will be held across 32 cities. Besides the eight IIMs, there are over 120 management schools registered with CAT that use the CAT score for admitting students. Click here for detailed CAT Syllabus
