The IIMs have apparently re-opened the registration process for those candidates who could not fill in the application process due to last minute rush, especially because the CAT 2014 registration process was stalled for 15 hours, from Sunday, September 28, 2014 to Monday, September 29, 2014, due to site maintenance.
Further, with the one-day special registration window, IIMs expect CAT 2014 registration numbers, which touched a new low this year, to improve by a few more thousands.
Earlier, CAT 2014 registration number has recorded a new low with only 1.90 candidates registering for the prestigious MBA entrance exams after the registration widow closed on September 30. According to IIM Indore which is conducting CAT 2014 on behalf of all 19 IIMs including the 6 new IIMs announced this year, about 5,000 less candidates registered for CAT this year as compared to 2013. A total of 1,94, 514 candidates had registered for CAT in 2013.
The new low in registrations brings yet another blow to the Common Admission Test (CAT), which already witnessed a decline in 2013. The number of CAT 2013 registration had already dipped to a record low with only 1.95 lakh candidates filling application for the exam in 2013. The actual number of test takers had further fallen with only 1.74 lakh candidates appearing for the test in 2013.
In the year 2008, around 2, 90,000 candidates had registered for the prestigious MBA entrance exam. Since then the number has dipped barring a few exception where it showed signs of revival.
Though, availability of seats at IIMs has increased consistently, the number of applicants and test takers have reflected a contrast trend. Sample this: While there were only 11 seats available per 1000 applicants for IIM admission year 2010-12, the increasing seats of IIM coupled with lowering registration resulted in availability of 17 seats per 1000 applicants for IIM admission year 2014-16. The availability of seats for CAT 2014 applicants this year is expected to go up to 20 per 1000 candidates.
The computer based CAT 2014 will be conducted over a window of 2 days on November 16 and November 22, 2014. The other important dates are given in the following table:

Yes, absolutely. You have good academic scores apart from your graduation score. You can get call from some of the top colleges/universities like FMS, IIM Calcutta, Kozhikode, Shillong and other cap IIMs. Older IIMs are still a bit dicey in the matter and all the admissions will be mainly based on your CAT score. Given you are a Btech student then you should target a score of 99+ percentile to get a call from these B-school.

Don't take a complete drop instead work part-time/full time and prepare alongside for the Common Admissions test - CAT. Prepare step by step or get yourself enrolled for a weekends program with a good coaching institute depending on your preparation level. This will not only give you an edge over other freshers who will be applying but also will give you an idea on the stream/domain in which you want to pursue your MBA in.
