CAT results likely in a week

The wait would soon be over for those aspiring to get into the countrys top business schools with results for the first computer-based Common Admission Test (CBT-CAT ) 2009 expected to be announced in the coming 7- 10 days, an Indian Institute of Management (IIM) professor told ET. We would announce the results in the next 10 days. Although the exact date has not been finalised as yet, said IIM Lucknow admissions chairman Prof Himanshu Rai.

IIM comprises a network of seven business schools across the country that admit students every year through CAT. Prof Satish Deodhar, CAT convenor, had earlier said that results will be announced in the third week of February. However, it appears that it could be delayed by a few days. The results, that were earlier supposed to be out on January 22, got delayed as the computer based CAT, which started on November 28, 2009, ran into a series of technical glitches. While phase I of the test was completed on December 8, 2009, more than 4,000 students could not take the test.

The CAT Committee and US-based agency Prometrict that has been mandated to conduct CAT, held phase II of the test on January 30 & 31. While some students are eagerly waiting for the results, others are apprehensive. Says 22-year-old engineering student Vipul Singh, There were so many irregularities during the first phase of CAT that many like me are wondering if the results will be free on any glitches. I am quite sure that many aspirants may not find their results satisfactory.
