Here comes some good news for CAT aspirants and for applicants who are still in process of applying for the exam.

The new deadline is 5 pm on Tuesday, September 27, 2016; earlier deadline was September 22, 2016.
“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, 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. This number is expected to go up further by 5:00 p.m. as today being the original deadline. The corresponding number last year was 1.83 lakhs,” Prof. Bandi added. The extension of the deadline has been notified on the CAT website.
