CAT admit card to be released on October 24

By Shweta

The admit card for Common Aptitude Test (CAT) 2016 will be issued on October 24 instead of October 18. There will be a delay of six days in the issue of admit card. IIM Bangalore has announced the delay in issue of admit cards by stating, "CAT 2016 admit cards can be downloaded from 1 PM onwards on Monday, October 24, 2016."

Earlier the admit card was to be released on October 18, 2016.

Reasons for delay in CAT admit card

The two main reasons behind the delay in issue of admit card are the high number of registration for CAT exam and the extension of registration date by five days. The number of candidates registering for CAT 2016 is 2.32 lakh which is higher than 2.18 lakh candidates appearing last year.

The last date to register for CAT was September 22 which was extended till September 27. As there were less time to check all the applications and release the admit cards, the date to issue the admit card is extended.

Admit card must be printed and taken to the examination center. Anyone who goes to the CAT exam without his/her admit card will not be considered eligible for the test. The admit card must be downloaded from the site as no hard copy of it will be sent to the candidate.
