Hi Puys,

If anyone gets confirmation (via SMS/Email/call) from CAT Candidate Service/Prometric on the new schedule, for those tests which were cancelled due to technical glitches, center problems, virus etc., please do post the information you have got. I suggest the below format:

1. Original Test date and slot:
2. Reason for the cancellation (if known):
3. New testing date and slot:
4. Time and date on which you received the new schedule:
5. Is there an option to choose the dates for the new schedule:
6. Your experience in rescheduling:


This will definitely help fellow puys.

MODs, please help to make this thread as informative as possible, so that all the 8000+ candidates(for whom test has been cancelled) will be benefited.
Please modify the content of this post if required, so that it can be made even clearer.

Thanking PG,

Dear Mods,
Just like u guys made a spreadsheet for problems with cat(during cat period). can we make a sheet for problems with conduct of retest. as told in the homepage article we can include the below problems.
1. eligible for retest but not given a chance.
2. Not eligible but yet given a chance.
3. Making the retest optional to people for whom it should be compulsory and vice vorca.
4. Problems during actual retest conduct.(on 30/31)
5. Any other problems.

This will give us a stock of the current situation, as to how many are still affected. And also later on it is surely going to strengthen the case Harsa is fighting for.

I think you will take a serious consideration of the above.

Hi All,

I have a big concern. I just went through the 7 criteria specified by IIMs. I think i fall under category 5. My test was disrupted for 2 hours due to some glitches. does that mean clock time exceeded 140 mins? I am yet to receive any notifications from Prometric? What to do now? Can anyone share the candidate care number or mail id?

u have decent attempts yaar....if u r sure that ur accuracy will be around 85 to 90% thn don't go for it again.....i have 42 attempts .....i m sure abt my QA and DI section but not sure abt VA .... i believe tht i can do better with no of attempts so i m going for retake option.....SO if u think u can perform better go for it else don't go for it as u already have gud no of attempts.......in the end u have to take decision........

But truely speakin ths type of situation shuld not be in front of us......if it is there thn it shuld be for all.........Ek side retest nhi di aur accha result nhi aya to baad me aisa feel hoga ki option tha phir bi nhi di......dusri side retest di aur result accha nahi aya thn aisa hoga ki faltu me de di......Because of this dilemma i screwed my last 2 days.....
