Subject: CAT Results
Sorry for being inactive for so long . We are busy with our summer internships thats why the activity level has been low in the past month . Now the time has come for all the aspirants to face the reality . The results are round the corner . We expect the results to be definitely out by the end of April . Hence keep your fingers crossed and pray for the best . I am pretty sure that all of you would be able to get through . Now that I am well settled at my summers location I am open to any queries and questions .
Once the results are out we would be contacting all the successful candidates and will be guiding you through the whole process of registration.
i don't know his source of info and i am also not trying to raise hopes here but we might expect results sooner than what we are thinking now!!!...
Its been almost a week since the directive has been issued by the MHRD, but the problems that the IIM's face have not changed. My botheration is that no answers have come out so far :oops:...
The IIM's always knew that they would get a directive that would ask them to implement the OBC quota from this year itself...with creamy layer i.e...but they (IIM B) only started calling the call getters asking for the family income after they got the directive..Wouldn't it
have been wise on their part to start collecting this info right after the order by SC?
All the IIM's will discuss this over a period of 3 days!! As far as I understand each IIM has sufficient autonomy to decide the number of seats they can implement this year (in fact i guess they should have the exact numbers by now)..Also, I think that there is enough clarity on the implementation of the creamy layer..atleast thats what the MHRD claims..i do not have any other source to verify this, but i found the SC ruling quite objective..
Finally, we called up the IIM's a lot many times...we heard a variety of answers..but the only consistent reply we got was that the results would be out within one day as and when they get the directive... Why do they create this hope among the aspirants when they are not sure about the directive and its content..
I might sound very negative...but thats the best that i can make out of the way in which this admission process is being handled...
I hope that they atleast give out a notice...it need not give out an exact date on which we can expect results...but it can atleast tell us when not to expect the results...even that'll do..
any ideas about how is it going to be done...
let's take the example of L
it has shortlisted 56 students who have applies as OBC
that means they will declare results for total students shortlisted for GD/PI - these 56 and release a general category list for same number of seats as last year/slightly more ...........is this how is it going to work
I believe the problem is essentially with the creamy layer clause - as of now, there is no proper method for the IIMs to go around this criteria...
I realise this isn't rosy, but unless the government decides t o either give the quota a break this year or not implement it in PG institutes, there is a good chance results may be badly delayed because it will take time for the creamy layer to get filtered ou tfrom the OBC list.
Just my take, my advice would be to secure all our second options...
I wished to see some updates from The Govt or the IIM's today. I really hope that our wait is as short as possible.
However, I think that as the wait continues there would be an additional pressure on the HRD by the IIM's to declare the results. And the Govt cannot afford to postpone the implementation of this reservation to next year as it deceives the very purpose of starting all this reservation business (this being an election year)...So, as the wait continues to come close to the month end, the Govt would not get the time to tinker with the judgement and higher the likelihood that the implementation would be along with all the stipulations as we currently know and more along the lines of the Supreme court judgement..
Lets hope for the best and I would love to hear something from the IIM's today.
No. If say a OBC student gets a absolute better score than a general student, he will be given a general seat and not the reserved OBC seat. This confusion may not have happened till now since overlap between SC/ST and General will hardly be any. But it is much more probable with OBC students.
The seats are not categorized as "Forward caste" seats but "General seats" which means its for "everyone".
I know this since in Tamil Nadu there is reservation for BC students and if a BC student gets a better rank than me, he takes the general seat and not the BC seat.
Me got shortlisted for GD/PI too Received the mail from RGIIM today noon.
Have the interview at Mumbai on the 29th of April.
