It seems that there is still some hope for the students who haven't been able to take CAT 2009 due to technical problems. These students would get another opportunity told Prometric and the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) on Monday. They explained that while the main testing window for CAT 2009 closes on Tuesday as scheduled, any registered student who hasn't had an opportunity to complete testing by then will be intimated of a subsequent date and venue for testing over the coming weeks. The trouble was caused by the computer viruses that led to rescheduling of 20,000 students so far and most have subsequently completed their test successfully.
Addressing candidates' concerns that their results may have been affected by viruses which hampered testing, Prometric explained that their ongoing reconciliation processes have verified that there have been no modifications or deletions of the results due to virus attack. Launch of computer-based CAT involved delivery of exams on 17,000 computers in 361 temporary testing labs at 104 centres in 32 cities across India On December 8 (Day 11), the test will be held over one morning session in 20 cities, including Bangalore Over 26,800 candidates completed the test on December 6 Nearly 1.87 lakh candidates completed the test, nine days after it commenced.
