MICA Ahmedabad has declared the score cards for MICAT 2016 on February 2, 2016, a month after its admission committee took the decision to release the score-card following repeated demands from MICAT takers. The score card of MICAT carries overall and sectional scores of the candidates. It, however, took forty days, after the declaration of results, for MICA to put internal processes in place for the release of MICAT 1 scorecards.
This is the first time in the history of MICAT that the scorecards have been declared by MICA admission authority. After MICAT I result announcement on December 23, 2015, many candidates had doubted the credibility of the results and demanded scorecards for transparency in shortlisting of candidates for GE-PI stage. Besides writing to MICA, candidates had also expressed their disappointment on social media.
