No Fuss ! CAT 2016 bans shoes, socks to curb malpractice in exam hall

As per a recent notification released by the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2016, candidates will not be allowed to wear shoes or any other closed footwear during the exam. If worn, the candidate in question will be asked to leave the footwear along with their socks outside the exam hall, the official notification read.

Reacting to this official announcement, candidates questioned the move on PaGaLGuY’s discussion threads. ” How are we to sit without shoes in this cold weather?, ” asked Sourabh Chopra, one of the aspirants. Some other students joked about wearing a wooden khadau to the exam.

The official mail further read that candidates with mehendi laden hands or carrying any other ‘cosmetic colours’, will not be permitted to take the test as they would not allow finger prints to be digitally scanned on the day of the exam. In line with that, the official notification warned candidates from applying henna at least 5 days prior to the exam.
