Those who have not yet got a rescheduled date for the Common Admission Test (CAT) need not worry.
Though the testing window of CAT might end on Tuesday, Prometric, the agency conducting the test, said that they would intimate those who have not yet been rescheduled with a subsequent date and venue in the coming weeks. Those who have faced technical glitches (for example, those who could not see the questions clearly on their screen), will also be allowed to give a re-exam if necessary.
The problems still persisted and Mumbai students got messages saying that their test was rescheduled in Lucknow.
But the usually busy Candidate Care helpline came to the rescue of the student and his centre has been changed to Mumbai. “I was so worried. Thankfully I got through the helpline and they accommodated me,” said the aspirant.
While most candidates seem to have been placed, some have been asked to take the exam again. This despite the instruction on the website asking students to ignore rescheduling messages if they have taken the exam successfully.
“After the exam I had issues submitting it but then the officials there told me that the problem was resolved,” said Ankit Mehta who has now been asked to give his exam on Tuesday. “But yesterday I got a message about the rescheduled date.”
After 10 days of the exam, coaching classes are worried that difficulty level has not been maintained throughout.
“Students from the earlier batches were able to attempt more questions than students in the later batch,” said Arks Srinivas, from T.I.M.E institute.
Prometric said that they successfully tested over 1.87 lakh students till day nine.
