Common Admision Test (CAT) has just gone hi-tech. From this year, to appear for CAT, all one needs to do is apply online. Apart from selling CAT bulletin and application forms through bank counters , Inidan Institute of Managements (IIMs) have also created this online facility.
IIMs will also set up an interactive voice recorder system (IVRS) which will be functional later this month to answer queries regarding application as well as admission status. The CAT which will decide admission at all six IIMs, besides 60 other B- schools, had over 1.8 lakh applicants last year.
