“As many as 1,89,759 candidates have registered for Common Admission Test (CAT) 2014,” Dr Rohit Kapoor, CAT 2014 Convenor and IIM Indore faculty, said.
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.
Total number of Seats in IIM:
Seats available per 1000 candidates
Total number of CAT applicants
Total number of seats at IIM
Over the last few years, number of seats available per 1000 registration has increased significantly. With the lowering number of CAT registrations and expected increase in the number of IIM seats with inclusion of 6 new IIMs, the competition might ease further.
