New Delhi, Aug 24: The countdown for the crucial Common Admission Test (CAT) for the year 2010 has officially began as the test dates have been announced.

CAT 2010, which follows that rather controversial CAT 2009 as the first-of-its-kind online test was marred by technical snags, is scheduled to be held between Oct 27 and Nov 24.

Passing the all-India test is mandatory for admission to the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and 150 other B-schools across India.

CAT 2010 will be administered across 33 cities.

Vouchers for CAT 2010 would be available for sale at select Axis Bank branches from Aug 30 through Sep 27, the IIMs along with Prometric, the firm responsible for conducting the online CAT 2009, said in a statement on Tuesday, Aug 24.

Registration and scheduling will open on Aug 30 and close on Sep 30.

Prometric, which faced severe criticism over the failure of the first online CAT in 2009, will be releasing a collection of short online videos to familiarise candidates with the registration and scheduling process, test day procedures and other aspects of CAT including the scoring method.

Videos will be available on the CAT website for candidates to review after Aug 30.
