Watch YouTube to crack CAT, IIMs tell aspirants

The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) have asked the aspirants seeking a place in the elite B-Schools to watch the YouTube to get assistance in cracking the online Common Admission Test (CAT).

The CAT, which has gone online from this year, will be held between Nov 28 and Dec 7 in 32 cities and at 105 testing centres.

Around 242,000 aspirants will attempt to bell the CAT this year for entry into the reputed IIMs. The figure has fallen from 276,000 candidates last year.

Candidates are encouraged to view the YouTube videos,” an official communication from the IIMs and their online test conductor Prometric said Wednesday.

There are several videos available on the YouTube for helping aspirants in coping with the exam.

The IIMs specifically have urged students to watch a video titled “What to expect on test day”.

The management school also issued a final reminder to candidates appearing for the CAT to “stay contactable by phone and email from today onwards. Access emails regularly, including the spam folder”.

The candidates have also been asked to check the admit cards thoroughly for appointment date, time and test location.

“Candidates should note that any SMS messages sent by Prometric will be from PROMETRC (the letter “i” has been omitted to conform to the TRAI eight-character ID regulation),” the company underlined.
