CAT goes Online

From this year CAT ( Common Admission Test) will be conducted online this year for the admissions in IIM for the year 2010 although there are efforts going on regarding this from some time now to replace the paper and pen format with online testing. It will help students to select convenient time for taking exam.It reduces the paper work other formalities to great extent as 2,50,000 students applied for the CAT in 2008 it was a huge exercise for the management of this exam. The reason vrious exams were not going online is that India has only 7.3 million Desktops and Laptops with only 3.87 million broadband connection as of March 2008 according to TRAI in addition to that the power supply is so abrupt that it will be a great constraint in conducting exam and to top it all not many village students and small town students are so computer friendly to take exam online but yes its a great step in making use of technology. Prometric Testing Pvt. Ltd, the India arm of Prometric Inc., a US-based testing company will conduct the exam for IIM's, the same firm conducts exam for TOEFL and GRE so it has enough experience to do that. So all those who are thinking to appear in CAT 2009 for admission in 2010 have some fun with computers and be computer savvy. Good Luck.
