CAT results 2015 are officially released by IIM through SMS. There was a report going on about the declaration of CAT 2015 results as many CAT candidates have received their result unofficially via SMS. Hackers have reportedly cracked result page source code of CAT, which has forced the authorities to declare the results way before the scheduled time, which was on 12th January 2016.
After this rumor CAT portal had disabled the login page for candidates. Now they have officially declared the result through SMS on candidate’s registered mobile number.
There is a notice on the CAT portal – iimcat.ac.in which declares that “CAT 2015 Percentile is sent to all the candidates through SMS. The scorecards will be available from 8th January 2016 evening.”
As per the cut-offs of respective IIMs and other top B-schools, the candidates will be called for the next rounds – Written Ability Test (WAT), Group Discussions (GD) and Personal Interviews (PI) sessions to get into IIMs and other B-schools. Common Admission Test (CAT) conducted on 29th of November 2015, is one of the most sought-after management entrance exams for aspirants who seek admission to IIMs and top B Schools of India for the academic year 2016 – 2017.
