This is how the exam calendar for 2010 admission season looks as on August 7
- September 6, 7 onwards: MAT September 2009
- Nov 8: IRMA Entrance Test
- Nov 22: IIFT Delhi/Kolkata Entrance Test
- Nov 28-Dec 7: CAT 2009
- Dec 13: JMET 2010
- Dec 27: ICFAI's IBSAT
- Jan 3: XLRI's XAT
Is it just me, or does someone else also suspect that IIFT knew about the CAT exam dates when it announced the IIFT Entrance Test on Nov 22, the slot usually reserved for the CAT. Interesting, if all these institutes counsel with each other before planning the year's exam dates.
