Computer-Based CAT, not Internet-Based CAT Notification

Computer-Based, not Internet-Based CAT 2009

The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) have announced admissions to various management programmes offered at the institutes located at Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Indore, Kozhikode, Lucknow and Shillong through the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2009.

In an official release, the IIMs have clarified that CAT 2009 would be a Computer Based Test (CBT) and not an Internet Based Test (IBT).

"A candidate would not take the CAT 2009 on an Internet site. Instead of reading the questions in a paper booklet and darkening the ovals on the answer-sheet, a candidate will read the questions on a computer terminal and choose an answer by clicking on the correct option", the IIMs said.

A candidate can take the test only at designated test venues in 30 cities across India.

CAT 2009 would be held between November 28, 2009 and December 7, 2009.

The computer based CAT will be candidate-friendly, flexible in the selection of test date, ease registration process, provide better physical environment and test experience, and enhanced security in terms of biometric identification of candidates and video monitoring.
