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!!!...
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...
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.
