The IIMs have just come out with the notification that the registration date for CAT 2015 has been extended by 5 days. This is ostensibly because the number of registrations are low. Economic Times has this to say – http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/industry/services/education/iims-extend-cat-2015-registration-window-by-5-days/articleshow/49038040.cms
Other folks on the interwebs are ascribing the following reasons for this:
- The process is completely online, including payments. So this may be hard for folks in semi-urban and rural settings
- Candidates no longer have the facility to choose slots
- Exams are all on the same day, no multiple day options etc.
- MBAs just aren’t that popular anymore
Personally, I don’t think reasons 2, 3 and 4 make any sense.
So anyway, if you haven’t registered yet because you were teetering on the edge, or are a perennial procrastinator or are just careless, the universe is offering you a chance to make up for it!
