By adding this, a total of 3,335 seats are available for admissions in 13 IIMs across India.
The Common Admissions Test (CAT) for the year 2013 is conducted by the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Indore for admissions to Management programmes for the year 2013-14.
The CAT is an all India entrance test for admission to the IIM's and other reputed institutions across the country.
The CAT entrance exam vouchers will be available in branches of Axis Bank from Aug 05 to Sept 24, 2013.
The Online registration window will open from Aug 05 to Sept 26, 2013.
From this year, CAT has introduced e-vouchers. However, sale of physical vouchers will also continue. Moreover, four more cities have been added to the list of 36 where CAT 2013 is to be conducted.
Due to increase in number of seats as well as the gradual increase in interest for MBA, IIMs are expecting a 10% increase in registration.
"The Indian Institutes of Management is preparing for more students to appear for CAT 2013 as students will have greater chances for admission into the IIMs," said Rohit Kapoor, CAT 2013 convenor.
The number of women appearing for CAT has been steadily increasing - from 53,700 in 2010 to 56,000 in 2011. In 2012, more than 60,800 women appeared for the CAT.
