Cat exam date will be conducted this year on December 4th and admit card can be downloaded on October 18th.
“The primary reason for the extension is to facilitate the applicants who are still in the process of completing their applications. There are many applicants in this stage, and we have been getting a lot of requests from them,” said Professor Rajendra K Bandi, CAT 2016 convenor.
“The total number of submitted applications (as at 3:30 p.m.) is 2.08 lakhs, which is far in excess of the applications for the comparable period last year.
The corresponding number last year was 1.83 lakhs,” Bandi added. The extension of the deadline has been notified on the CAT website.
