JMET replaced by CAT
The Joint Management Entrance Test (JMET) was replaced in 2011 by the Common Admission Test (CAT). The JMET was previously used for entrance to Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs), and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc). By replacing the test, candidates for MBA and other postgraduate management programs should theoretically be able to save time, effort and money. Since the academic year 2012-2013, CAT scores have been used for admission.
Developed and produced by Prometric with the IIMS, the first CAT was held from 22 October to 18 November, 2011 in 36 cities. IIMs and other non-IIM institutions currently accept CAT scores, check the list for recent additions. The exam is a computer-based test (CBT) for those already holding a bachelor's degree. Two separate timed sections comprise the test: Quantitative Ability & Data Interpretation, and Verbal Ability & Logical Reasoning. CAT 2012 was held between October and November of that year. Fees were most recently Rs. 1,600 for general candidates and Rs. 800 for Schedule Castes/Schedule Tribes (SC/ST) category candidates.
CAT 2012 scores have been announced.
