IIM – Bangalore authorities have extended the registration window for the CAT 2016 examination. Extension has been marked since the last three years in a row. Even though no extension was is plan, the extension has been made on heavy requests from the candidates.
Hike in Number of Registration
The deadline for the registration process is 27th September until 5 pm. This year the registration number have stood at 2.08 lakhs. With five days in hand, we are anticipating a record high in number of registrations.
The hike in registration process can also be attributed to the increase in seats of IIMs. As instructed by MHRD, the IIMs have to submit an expansion plan to the ministry and discuss on how to carry out a smooth operational process without compromising the quality of infrastructure or the teaching in-house faculty.
The placement record have also recorded a shoot this year and can be anticipated as a reason for the surge in registration process. As we know that the campus placement activity have not got affected by recession and IIMs have curriculum that will produce the best global leaders in the world.
High number of requests from applicants for extension:
According to Prof. Rajendra Bandi, Convenor of CAT exam 2016, have stated that the major reason for extension are the requests from the applicants who had not completed the registration process.
