This was decided by six chairmen of the CAT Committes of as many IIMs after their meeting on IIM-Ahmedabad (IIM-A) campus here earlier today.
There are about 1,500 seats in the six IIMs, as against 1.60 lakh candidates, who appeared in the written test across 24 cities in the country.
IIM-A director Bakul Dholakia said the CAT Committee's centre will be shifted from Ahmedabadto Bangalore, from August 1, 2006.

The CAT score (expressed in percentile) was the basis on which candidates were called for Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interview (PI) by different IIMs.
Incidentally, the CAT score is also used by a large number of other B-Schools to call candidates for GD and PI for final selection to their respective institutes and management departments in various universities. This year, there were 75 such B-Schools, as against 54 the previous year.
Prof Dolakia also announced that the next written test, CAT-2006, will be held on Sunday, November 19, 2006 for admission to PGP for the batch of 2007-09.
