New Delhi, Jan 30: The second phase of the CAT examination, involving over 11,000 MBA aspirants will be held on Saturday, Jan 30 and Sunday, Jan 31.
The identification of students for the second phase of the examination will be conducted in around 40 centers across the country, of which nine centres are in Delhi.
"There are 11,000 students, 2,000 in Delhi, who have been identified across the country for the CAT re-test. These students couldn't take the exam because of technical problems earlier," Ulhas Vairagkar, of coaching institute TIME said.
Citing ignorance about the number of students scheduled to appear for retest, Vairagkar said that the number may be less as other aspirants may already appeared for other MBA entrances.
"However, we can not say for sure how many will actually take the re-test since a number of them must have already appeared for other MBA entrance tests.
Varaignar said that the technical glitches will also effect the declaration of results.
"As a result of the technical problems and students being unable to take the test, the date for the results has also been postponed. Earlier, the result was to be declared Jan 22, but now it will be out Feb 15," he said.
He added that while the admission process will remain unchanged, the delayed result would leave the students with less time to prepare for the group discussion and interview.
"Since the results will be delayed, the students will get less time to prepare for the group discussion and interview. But the admission process as such will remain unaffected," he said.
The first phase of CAT examination, which was marred by technical glitches, effected at least 241,000 Masters in Business Administration aspirants who had registered for the first online CAT examination scheduled from Nov 28, 2009.
