21 Feb : The results of Common Admission Test (CAT)-2009 have been deferred to February end, an official statement from convenor of CAT-2009 at Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) said on Saturday.
The results were supposed to be declared by this week, the convenor said without specifying the reasons for delay, causing large scale inconvenience to the B-School aspirants across the country.
The students are already late in seeking admissions due to delayed conduct of CAT-2009, which was marred by technical glitches in first phase, and subsequently had to be re-conducted for candidates who faced problems in exam.
Out of the 2.41 lakh students who applied for CAT-2009 over 2.15 lakh students appeared for the admission test that concluded on 31st January last.
There are over 120 non-member IIM, management schools registered with CAT, which use the CAT score as criteria for granting admissions apart from eight IIMs.
