IIM Directors to continue with online CAT mode

IIM Directors to continue with online CAT mode

New Delhi: Glitches, trouble, anxiety, pressure, all this and much more mounted both the students and examinees during the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2009. But in spite of all hurdles, the Directors of the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) have decided to stick to the online version with no re-tests this year.

An IIM Director, who wished to remain anonymous, felt that, "It will be un-manageable for the institute to plunge back to the conventional paper-pencil format as it will not be a feasible option keeping in view the number of aspirants appearing for it."

All the Directors recently held a meeting in Mumbai to discuss the issue of the CAT-2009 fiasco.

While the directors met to discuss the fate of online exams, they also included Prometric, the US based agency that conducted the test this year, in their talks but are not too sure to continue with its services.
