Stating the reason for extending the application deadline, Prof. Neeraj Dwivedi, CAT 2017 Convenor says, "There are a number of candidates who have registered but have not been able to complete the applications. We have extended the date to give them an opportunity to complete their applications and make payments. The extended time window also allows new candidates to register in case they have missed out due to some reason." Candidates who are yet to apply for CAT 2017 have got another chance to complete the process as the last date of application is extended by five days. Last year, IIM Bangalore, the conducting body of CAT 2016 had increased the application deadline by five days from September 22 to 27, 2016.

According to experts, IIM Lucknow's decision to extend the last date of submitting CAT 2017 application form might be a result of less than two lakh applications. However, the officials have not revealed the number of applications received so far. Going by previous years’ trend, it is expected that the number of total applications will increase in the last five days.

Last year, IIM Bangalore had received 2.08 lakh applications until September 22, the original deadline. The final number of applications was 2,32,434. Within the span of five days, the number of applications increased by 11.74 percent. Hence, the similar trend is expected in CAT 2017 application numbers as well.
