CAT 2016 registration number climbs to 2.32 lakh; highest in past 7 years
CAT 2016 has witnessed a 7-year record high in its registration number with 2,32,434 lakh aspirants applying for the management entrance test for which the registrations closed on 27 September 2016. This is the highest application number for CAT after the year 2009 when IIMs had received about 2.41 lakh applications. Professor Rajendra K. Bandi, Convenor, CAT 2016 said, “From the period CAT 2010 to CAT 2016, this is the highest number of applicants." The total number of registered candidates in CAT 2015 was 2,18,664. Compared to last year, there has been a 6% rise in the number of applications in CAT 2016.
Gender wise Application in CAT 2016
In the CAT 2016 applications, 67% of the applicants are male, whereas 33% are female, which has increased by 1% compared to last year. Commenting on the marginal increase in the female applicants, Prof. Bandi said that half of the additional applications, contributing towards the increased application numbers, have come from female candidates. "If we look at the total increase in the applications compared to last year, which is close to 14,000, almost half of these additional applications have come from female candidates. This is a positive sign."
Although the officials have provided the male-female ratio of CAT 2016 applications, the number of transgender applicants has not been mentioned. In 2015, there were 80 transgender applicants for the national level test.
CAT 2016 Gender wise Application
The number of PWD (Persons with Disability) applicants has increased from 901 to 938. “In this category, the percentage of male candidates is very high (more than 80%), which is something to think about. Our social systems need to encourage female PWD students. However, on the positive side, the percentage of female PWD candidates has increased from 14.76% to 17.48%. Small positive steps, but miles to go on this,” Prof. Bandi added.
PWD Applicants in CAT 2016
