The prestigious Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) is considering to hold the entrance test online.
The CAT committee of IIM is also considering to allow the aspirants to take the test online for a definite number of times during the year instead the once in a year. The committee is in talks with leading global online test company Prometric which has helped deliver tests like GRE and Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) to get the job done. The committee had earlier expressed apprehension over the fact that not many aspirants taking the test are computer savvy. Conducting CAT online will solve a lot of administrative work for the IIMs. The institutes can directly call students for interviews and group discussions thus simplifying the whole admission process.
