Further, on 4 December 2016, that is on the day of the exams, the PWD candidates will have an opportunity to register 15 minutes before other candidates.

PWD coordinators will extend a helping hand for PWD candidates at every exam centre. The list of PWD coordinators will be shared with the concerned candidates much before the exams.

Prof Rajendra K Bandi, Convener of CAT 2016 told Times of India, "Going by the trends of previous years, there will be a huge surge in the number of registrations in the last 2-3 days, which increases the load on servers and can potentially impact server response time. Candidates are advised to register early and avoid last minute inconvenience."
