The countdown for the MBA aspirants has begun. The common admission test (CAT) committee has officially announced the dates of the test to be conducted later this year. CAT 2012 will be coordinated by the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Kozhikode on behalf of 12 other IIMs and other participating institutes in the examination. This year the examination will be a 27-day affair starting from October 11, 2012 and concluding on November 6, 2012.
According to the committee notification, like previous year, it will be a computer-based test and will have two sections of one hour and ten minutes duration each. There will be 30 questions in each section including quantitative ability and data interpretation, verbal ability and logical reasoning. Before commencement of examination candidates will be given a 15-minute tutorial about the scheme of examination. The total duration will be two hours and 35 minutes including the tutorial."There are no significant changes to the CAT this year," informed the convenor of examination, S S S Kumar. "Over the past 3 years, IIMs and Prometric have been reviewing and improving the process to provide a smooth experience for candidates," added Kumar. Sale of vouchers will start from July 30, 2012 and will continue until September 17, 2012. Aspirants can register between July 30, 2012 and September 19, 2012. The test days this year are from October 11, 2012 to November 6, 2012. The results will be announced on January 9, 2013. This year, apart from the IIMs, more than 130 B-schools across the country are subscribing to CAT score. The number of CAT aspirants peaked in 2008 when 2.76 lakh aspirants registered for the test, which was a pen and paper mode test then. The year 2009 not only marked the CAT shifting to computer-based mode, but it also remained one of the most controversial with major technical snags being reported from across centres raising serious questions on the test, because of which the testing window was extended to 20 days in 2010.
