New Delhi: The Common Admission Test (CAT) for entry into prestigious IIMs and other B-schools kicked off on Saturday with 5,690 candidates sitting for the test.

Computer-based examination went off smoothly "with no major issues reported", Prometric, which has been conducting CAT online for the IIMs since 2009, said in a statement today.

The cities in which the highest number of candidates are scheduled to take the online test between October 22 and November 18 are New Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Pune.

About 2.05 lakh candidates have registered for the test this year. Last year, 2.4 lakh candidates had registered for the test, while in 2009 the registration figure was 2.48 lakh.

Interestingly, 73 per cent of the total number of candidates who have registered are male.

This year, the test has two sections instead of the three earlier and students were given 70 minutes to answer each of them.

The results will be declared on January 11, 2012.
