With 1.8 lakh candidates appearing for the exam last year, the number is expected to further go up this year and online registration will go a long way in making it easier for the Indian Institute of Managements (IIMs) to reduce errors from candidates while filling up the form by placing software checks in place. Online registration will also help candidates to keep a track on their application at each stage.
This year the last date for CAT applications is Sep 9th, 2006. The CAT exam is scheduled for the 19th of November.
The IIMs have also planned on introducing an Interactive Voice Response (IVRS) system to aid the thousands of students who call up the IIMs to seek clarifications. The IVRS number will be made known to the public on the 16th of July, 2006.
