CAT 2013 results were announced on 14th January 2014. Many of the candidates have been demanding a re-evaluation.
"The entire methodology for computation of marks for CAT 2013 is faulty. We have asked for the raw marks of all students who appeared in the exam. The marks should not be processed so many times. In fact, there should not be 2-3 layers of filtration," said Piyush Mathur, CAT student.
A total of eight candidates had scored 100 percentile in CAT 2013 exam. The test was conducted by IIM Indore.
According to sources, CAT 2012 scores of 80 examinees on the website www.catiim.in have been tampered / altered, resulting in inflation of scores for these examinees.
