Mudra Institute of Communication Ahmedabad (MICA) will, once again, accept Common Admission Test (CAT) scores for admission to its flagship course this year. The institute had abandoned the CAT test from its admission process in 2010 and 2011 to use its own written test MICA test (MICAT).
The admission for 2012-14 batch of post-graduate programme diploma in management (communications) PGDM(C) will adopt a three step process of CAT, MICAT, and group exercise (GE) and personal interview (PI). A recent directive given by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has forced MICA to consider CAT scores. AICTE issued a notification last December making it compulsory for all management institutes registered under the council to consider the score of any one of five national tests - CAT, XAT, MAT, ATMA or JMET - in the admission processes, said associate director at MICA, Arbind Sinha. We chose to use CAT as we were already familiar with it. Apart from Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIM-A),the seven management institutes from the state which will use CAT scores this year are MICA, Amrut Mody School of Management of Ahmedabad University in Ahmedabad, Faculty of Technology Management of CEPT University in Ahmedabad, Institute of Management of Nirma University in Ahmedabad, Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDI) in Gandhinagar, School of Petroleum Management of Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University in Gandhinagar and Auro University in Surat. In the years to come, MICA is likely to drop CAT scores from its admission process once again. We are in the process of registering MICAT as one of the national tests recognized by AICTE, said executive registrar of MICA, K. G. K. Pillai.
