He made it clear that they would stick to the schedule. This announcement brought relief for those, who were in a dilemma over making a choice between campus placements and admissions into IIMs. ‘’Now I can take a clear stand on the placements as I am pretty confident of clearing the test,” said Preeti Bansal, a final year engineering student. IIM Indore had earlier announced that the results would be declared in the third week of December, but it could not meet the target reportedly due to several changes in the exam pattern this year.
‘’Every year, the results would be declared in the first or second week of January. But, this time, the CAT authorities have planned to release the results much ahead of the regular schedule to finish the admission process at the earliest,” said a senior management professor from Hyderabad.
CAT is the entrance test to secure admissions into one of the most prestigious management institutes such as IIMs and many other top business schools in the country.
Out of the total 1.96 registered applicants this year, around 1.90 lakh aspirants appeared for the test which was held from Nov 16-22.
