Goa Institute of Management to Accept CAT 2013 Scores
CAT 2013 has another new participating institute this year. The B-School is Goa Institute of Management (GIM). Till last year, GIM only accepted XAT scores and since the past 2 years, from the inception of CMAT, GIM is accepting the CMAT scores as well. This is the first time that GIM will accept the CAT scores.
Careers360 was unable to get in touch with the admission authorities. The question remains, what made GIM, one of the top B-schools in India accept CAT scores after so many years. However, we will continue our Endeavour to reach the admission authorities to know the reason of accepting CAT scores from this year.
The flagship programme of GIM Goa is Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM). The number of seats in this programme is 240. The tuition fee for the academic year 2013-15 was Rs. 6, 90, 000. The new academic year of 2014-16 might see a change in the fee structure depending on the B-School.
Trend of new participants in CAT over the years
Almost every year CAT sees new participants, which were earlier part of other popular MBA entrance exams such as XAT. The following table will give you the idea.

Last month, Careers360 had reported the participation of Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA) in CAT 2013. Though IRMA used to conduct its own MBA entrance exam IRMA, but now the B-schools is awaiting the Supreme Court’s verdict on IRMA entrance exam.
Careers360 will keep you updated on the new participants of CAT 2013 scores and on GIM’s decision of accepting CAT 2013 scores.
