TCS to be next CAT testing agency

Tata Consultancy Services has been appointed as the next CAT testing agency. While an official announcement is awaited, PaGaLGuY has came to know of it from confirmed sources.

From 2009 to 2013, it was Prometric Testing Private Limited (Prometric India) which partnered with the IIMs to deliver the CAT examination. The year 2009, was when the CAT exam went online.

A committee comprising of one member each from seven old IIMs (including a few directors) finalised on TCS after a series of meetings. Applications for the job were pouring in from August 2013 onwards and by December 2013, some six companies were shortlisted by the committee.

We tried asking the present CAT Convenor for more information but we were told that he was out of the country.
