Increase in number of candidates appearing for CAT
New Delhi: There has been a four per cent increase in the number of candidates appearing for the Common Admission Test this year as compared to last year.
"The CAT 2012 registration window ended at midnight on September 19 with 2.14 lakh registered CAT aspirants, exceeding last year`s registrations of 2.05 lakh," said a statement issued by Prometric, partnering IIMs in conducting the test.
It said that female candidates constitute 28 per cent of registrations, as compared to 27 per cent last year.
"Registration numbers have increased over last year, which is a positive indication that PG management programmes at IIMs and other B-schools that accept CAT scores, still offer an attractive future to many aspirants," said CAT 2012 convenor S S Kumar.
And similar to previous trends, the cities in which the highest numbers of candidates have chosen to sit for the test are New Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Pune.
CAT 2012 will be held between October 11 and November 6. It will have two sections -- the first will focus on quantitative ability and data interpretation and the second on verbal ability and logical reasoning.
