CAT is a common entrance test for admissions in MBA programs, conducted by the IIMs. There are over
200 other management institutes across India which accepts CAT scores for selection of aspirants for
management programs.
Usually, CAT exam is held in the month of November but this year CAT exams will begin from October 27th,
2010 & last till November 23rd, 2010. CAT will be held online and hopefully this year, aspirants will not face
any problems and will get to take a glitch-free test. The test will be conducted in the same 32 cities as it was
in 2009, but the number of test centers will be reduced.
