CAT 2013 Result: Kolkata High Court gives IIMs 4 weeks time to share raw scores
At the hearing on Monday, March 10, 2014, Kolkata High Court ordered IIM Indore to share the raw scores, answer sheets and normalization process for the 6 CAT 2013 candidates who had filed the petition at Kolkata High Court.
Snehashis Chatterjee, one of the petitioners said, “The previous hearing was on Friday, March 7, 2014 where Prometric was not present which led the rescheduling of the hearing date till Monday, March 10, 2014. Prometric was absent then also. The judge was livid and expressed his fury against IIMs and Prometric.”

According to Snehashis, the lawyer representing the IIMs initially tried to accuse the petitioners as part of coaching institutes, trying to malign the institution and divert the ongoing argument. However, the judge, Justice Ashok Das Adhikari stated his fury against the constant blame game between IIMs and Prometric and ordered the requisite authority to share the raw scores, answer scripts and normalization process within 4 weeks. “The judge also stated that no extension would be given to IIMs. Justice Das Adhikari also mentioned that they can continue with the ongoing admission process but if the petitioners’ actual scores are higher, they have to renew the process.”
Snehashis had scored 78 percentile in CAT 2013. “I could not believe my scores and given my performance, it is impossible for me to obtain this score. I know from my preparation level and performance in mock tests that I would get a higher score.” When asked if he is applying or appearing for GD PI rounds in other B-schools, Snehashis told Careers360 that he is aiming IIMs and waiting to receive his actual scores and get shortlisted by IIMs.
Prior to the Kolkata High Court hearing, the High Courts in Allahabad, Madras and Indore intervened into CAT 2013 results and IIM admission process. The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court has also issued notice to CAT 2013 Committee, CAT convening IIM- IIM Indore, CAT testing Agency Prometric and Union of India.
Thousands of CAT 2013 takers have alleged discrepancy in their CAT results and sought court intervention into the ongoing IIM admission process after CAT 2013 convening body at IIM Indore refused to share CAT raw scores and evaluation process methodology citing different reasons including ‘commercial interest of its testing partner’. IIM Indore which conducted Common Admission Test (CAT) on behalf of all 13 IIMs’ with Prometric being its testing partner, also refused to share answer keys and raw scores for the candidates saying revelation of the same may create ‘significant confusion’.
The Madras High Court intervened into the ongoing IIM admission process and put the entire admission process under legal scrutiny by staying admission on 8 seats for as many petitioners who sought interim relief alleging non-transparency in CAT 2013 results. Madhya Pradesh High Court has already issued notice to all IIMs’, CAT 2013 convening body, CAT testing agency Prometric and Government of India and subjected the final admission to all IIM to the outcome of a similar writ petition.
