Lucknow: The Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow (IIML) will conduct the Common Admission Test (CAT)-2017, a gateway to IIMs and other leading B-schools of the country. Prof Neeraj Dwivedi of IIML will be the convener of the examination to be conducted either in October or November.

IIM-L will be conducting the test after a gap of many years.

In the 2016 CAT results as many as 20 candidates had scored 100 percentile.

Registrations for the Common Admission Test (CAT) to IIMs and other leading B-schools shot up to a seven-year high in 2016, with 2,32,434 candidates applying for the entrance test to IIMs and other prominent B-schools.

“From the period CAT 2010 to CAT 2016, this is the highest number of applicants. While we still have a majority of male candidates (67%), the percentage of female candidates has marginally increased by 1% compared to last year, which is a good sign but not good enough,” Rajendra K Bandi, convenor of CAT 2016, had told HT lin 2016.
