IIM-Indore to conduct CAT 2014

IIM-Indore to conduct CAT 2014

TestFunda ,  30-May-14
IIM Indore recently became the only IIM to hold CAT for two consecutive years. The institute has been given the task of conducting the test despite allegations of discrepancies in the evaluation of CAT 2013 and subsequent cases filed.  Through CAT, students can take admissions to the 13 IIMs and 150 non-IIMs.

Generally, the IIMs conduct CAT in a rotational manner every year. In June 2013, after a scam in CAT, the ministry of human resources and development (MHRD) found that the method of entrusting the responsibility of conducting the test to the IIMs in a rotational manner wasn’t helpful. As a result the ministry asked the directors of IIMs to hold the test in the same institute for more than one year if it conducted the test successfully. Following this, the task of conducting CAT was reassigned to IIM-I.

IIM-Kozhikode had conducted CAT before IIM-I and faced criticism since score cards of 80 students were found to be tampered with. The IIMs then issued a statement saying that despite the scorecards being tampered with their admission process wasn’t affected since they used the master database to shorlist candidates.

After news about the scam the responsibility of restoring CAT’s credibility was on IIM-I which conducted CAT in 2013. For CAT 2014, IIM-I’s partner will be Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) since Prometric’s five year contract ended last year.
