CAT 2016: Over 37000 candidates skip December 4 test
Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) which has been facing criticism for conducting Common Admission Test (CAT) 2016 in a poor manner ever since the leak of questions during the test on December 4, has another reason to worry. The trend of large number of candidates skipping the national level test continues with minor improvements recorded at this front in 2016.
According to official data, more than 37,000 candidates skipped CAT 2016. This means that over 16 per cent CAT applicants did not appear for test on December 4. The total number of CAT applicants this year was 2,32,434.
After the test, CAT 2016 Convener Prof. Rajendra K. Bandi said that around 1,95,000 candidates out of total 2,32,434 applicants took the test. Though the percentage of test takers skipping the coveted exam reduced this year, the number of such candidates still remains high, considering the stature of the exam.
Last year, a total of 39,062 test takers skipped the test out of the 2,18,664 registered candidates. In 2016, the share of candidates skipping the test was 16.10 per cent as compared to 17.86 per cent last year.

CAT 2016 second slot test leaked!
Although the CAT 2016 official website mentions that CAT 2016 concluded successfully, the questions of the second session of CAT were leaked on social media platform Facebook while the test was still on.
IIM Bangalore also admitted that there was a malpractice during the test, but denied that it has compromised the integrity of the test. CAT 2016 takers demand retest and have filed an online petition demanding the same.
The test, conducted on December 4, had an overall difficulty of moderate to tough level. DI & LR was the toughest section followed by Quantitative Ability. Verbal and Reading Comprehension was the easiest section.
