CAT (Common Admission Test) 2011 has been finally out of the bag. The test was not much tough it was ‘Moderate’ in its difficulty level. Qualitative section was relatively higher on the difficulty level.
Dr. Anshu Kataria, Chairman Aryans Group said that since 2008 the number of CAT aspirants have come down i.e. in 2008 -2.76 lakh, in 2009 -2.42 lakh, in 2010 -2.05 lakh, in 2011-2.06 lakh. Dr. Kataria said that apart from global meltdown, the discontinuation of ‘paper- pencil’ format is the one of the reason for downfall of CAT.
Dr. Kataria further said that CAT should also be conducted in both the formats ‘paper-pencil’ as well as ‘online’. Dr. Kataria further said that still many students, especially from rural areas, fail to cope up with the online format. He also added that the penetration of the computers in semi-urban and rural area is yet not satisfactory. Students should have option to choose any format as per their convenience.
