Common Admission Test (CAT), 2011, a platform to get into the various prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) is likely to be held between 22 October 2011 (Saturday) and 18 November 2011 (Friday).
According to the sources, IIT Calcutta, a convener institute for CAT 2011 is likely to address a press conference in the next few days to officially announce the dates of the examination. Prof. Janakiraman Moorthy, Professor of Marketing at IIM Calcutta has been appointed as CAT 2011 Convener.
The students who are worried about the computer based format of CAT 2011 should not worry at all as in CAT 2010 no technical glitches were found as such and students gave their exam quite comfortably.
In last year’s CAT exam, IIM Lucknow was the convener of the examination. However, the Prometric agency which is conducting CAT for the last two years, will conduct the exam this year too.
