CAT 2012 notification out

The Common Admission Test (CAT) 2012 notification for admission to the 13 Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) is out. Much of what is tabled is what we already told you in our previous articles dated July 18 and July 20 . More information is available on the CAT website or in today’s national dailies which contain the notification.

The salient features include:

*A CAT candidate can appear for the exam only once during the 21-day testing window which is October 11, 2012 to November 6, 2012

*The CAT 2012 video will be available on from July 28, 2012 onwards.

*Separate advertisements will be published for the Fellowship programme of each institute.

*The shortlisting of candidates for the second stage of selection may be independent of each other. The processes, academic cut-offs and the weights allocated to evaluation parameters may vary across IIMs.

*Mere fulfillment of minimum eligibility criteria will not ensure consideration for shortlisting by the IIMs.

*The voucher has to be bought in the name of the candidate as it appears in the school leaving certificate.
