Enginners again dominate at CAT 2011

This year nine aspirants shared the 100% percentile score at prestigious management entrance examination CAT 2011. The Indian Institutes of Management published the results on their website on 11th January.  
CAT was conducted in a 20-day testing window between October 20 and November 18 last year in 68 test centres across 36 cities. New centres at Jammu and Kashmir and Dehradun were opened this year to facilitate the hilly region. For CAT 2011  2.05 lakh  students had got registered out of which close to 1.85 lakh students took the exam.

CAT scores are accepted by the 13 IIMs, the country's premier institutes for management studies, and several other management colleges in India. This year IITs made the decision to accept CAT scores instead of conducting a separate Joint Management Entrance Test.

The students of IIT Madras have scored very well at CAT.  Ajinkya Deshmukh a  graduate from this institute is amongst the 100 percentile scorers. Other two Prabhu Dev and Saipramod Inguva who scored 99.99 percentiles.  For Ajinkya this was third attempt. In the previous attempts he had scored 98.4 and around 87 percentile respectively.

Within a week all the IIMs would  publish list for  the second round of screening which includes group discussion and personal interviews. The prospective candidates would be informed by mail.  The  new IIMs, including those in Tiruchirapalli, Udaipur and Raipur, have increased their intake from 70 to 120 this year. This will improve the chances of many candidates to get into the prestigious IIMs.
