Views: 958

Common Admission Test (CAT) results, which are supposed to release on the 12th of January 2011, are allegedly out on the URL, which revealed the results last year, on the second day of the New Year. It has been alleged that the website may have been hacked, which is reminiscent of what had happened in the year 2004 when the CAT results had been leaked a day ahead of schedule on the website. Another possibility is that the results were being uploaded on the website for test runs and someone from the organization made the results available on the public domain. CAT 2010 Convener Himanshu Rai from the Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow (IIM-L) said that he had no knowledge of how the incident had occurred and added it would not be investigated further. “We had been taking down the servers and will be uploading the results. Whatever happens meanwhile is not of our concern. The results will be available officially on January 12,” he said. Earlier, the CAT has hit the headlines in 2009, when technical glitches kept the all-important examination in news. In 2010, the leaking of results of the test ten days prior to its official declaration date has resulted in much confusion and anxiety among several aspirants who had appeared for the examination last year.
