11,000 MBA aspirants to take online CAT re-test
CAT 2016 results in February: Ulhas Vairagkar, of coaching institute TIME, said: 'There are 11,000 students, 2,000 in Delhi, who have been identified across the country for the CAT re-test. These students couldn't take the exam because of technical problems earlier.' 'However, we can not say for sure how many will actually take the re-test since a number of them must have already appeared for other MBA entrance tests,' he added.
'As a result of the technical problems and students being unable to take the test, the date for the results has also been postponed. Earlier, the result was to be declared on Jan 22, but now it will be out Feb 15,' Vairagkar said.
CAT schedule extended; exam on Dec 8 in 20 cities
'Since the results will be delayed, the students will get less time to prepare for the group discussion and interview. But the admission process as such will remain unaffected,' he added.
At least 241,000 Masters in Business Administration aspirants had registered to appear for the first online CAT examination spread over 11 days from Nov 28 last year. However, all students could not appear for the exam due to technical glitches.
