After the online Common Admission Test collapsed in several places, creating confusion among thousands of B-school aspirants, the CAT authorities on Friday extended the exam schedule by one day.
"Prometric and the Indian Institutes of Management (IIM) have extended the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2009 till Dec 8. CAT 2009 was scheduled to run for 10 days from Nov 28 to Dec 7 2009," the US headquartered Prometric said in an official communique.
"We understand and regret the additional stress and inconvenience caused to candidates who have not been able to test on their scheduled day due to technical difficulties," said Ramesh Nava, Prometric vice-president and general manager for Asia Pacific, Japan and Africa.
"We are working with the IIMs to add an additional session on Day 11 to accommodate them within the city they were originally scheduled."
