The Common Admission Test (CAT) 2011 will start on Saturday 22nd Oct. 2011. As many as 2.05 lakh aspirants have registered for the computer-based test to be conducted jointly by the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and Prometric across 36 cities. The tests will be held till November 18-the actual testing days will be 20.
There will be five testing centres in Delhi, two in Gurgaon, and one each in Noida, Greater Noida and Faridabad. This year, apart from the IIMs, more than 130 B-schools across the country, including Delhi School of Economics, Lal Bahadur Shastri Institute of Management, Dwarka, Indian Institute of Forest Management, Bhopal, and Mudra Institute of Communications (MICA), are subscribing to CAT score. The new entrants include six IITs, Faculty of Management Studies, DU, and Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneshwar. Mean while, Prometric has set up two state-of-the-art testing laboratories in Gurgaon and Hyderabad for competitive exams like CAT, Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) and Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Managing director of Prometric India, Soumitra Roy, said, "These laboratories are equipped for multiple testing sessions. These are the first laboratories set up by Prometric in India for conducting various competitive tests. The test centre in Gurgaon can accommodate 226 aspirants in a single session." All test takers are advised to arrive at their centres at least one and a half hours before time. There will be a 15-minute tutorial before the exam to familiarize the candidates with the procedure of the test. A timer will appear on the top right corner of the screen. There will be two sections-quantitative ability and data interpretation followed by verbal ability and logical reasoning. The candidates will get one hour and 10 minutes for each section. Both the sections will have 30 questions each and will be timed separately.
