Every year, the conducting IIM for CAT is assigned in a rotational manner. This is a first in the history of the Common Admission Test (CAT) that an IIM is the conducting body for 2 consecutive years. Commenting on this development, Prof. Kapoor mentioned, “This was a collective decision taken by the 6 IIMs including IIM Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, Lucknow, Indore and Kozhikode. Last year Prometric’s contract ended and this year it would be a new start with a new agency, hence the IIMs decided that it would be best for IIM Indore to continue this year as well.”

Last year, CAT 2013 was announced on April 30. CAT 2013 was held over a window of 20 days, between October 16, 2013 and November 11, 2013. The result was declared on January 14, 2014. While 1.94 lakh candidates had registered for CAT 2013, around 1.74 lakh candidates took the test.
Post the declaration of the CAT 2013 result, controversy ensued over the scoring and normalization process after 95,000 candidates obtained 0 or negative scores, as a result of which as candidates who attempted no questions were placed at around 55 percentile bracket. Several CAT 2013 candidates filed Writ Petition which led the Indore High Court to send notice to all 13 IIMs, Ministry of HRD and CAT testing agency Prometric India Pvt. Ltd.
