IIMs fix 50 pc benchmark for taking CAT
Bangalore, Apr 20 (UNI) The directors of the Indian Institutes of Managements (IIMS) have decided to fix 50 per cent in the bachelor's exam as the academic eligibility to take the Common Admission Test (CAT).
Informing this to UNI here today, IIM Bangalore Director Prakash G Apte said the decision was taken collectively by all the IIMs in their recent meeting of Directors held at Ahmedabad to discourage 'those, who ultimately could not pass for the test, from applying'.
He said the decision was taken after receiving feedback on the issue from the respective faculty councils.
The move would also help the faculty councils concerned to save their valuable academic time every year, apart from handling less number of applications while shortlisting the candidates, he added.
