The last date to submit the application form for the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2022 has been extended by the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Bangalore. Previously, the deadline to complete the registration process was September 14. However, due to an overwhelming response from candidates, the CAT registration window will now remain open till September 21.
Candidates who are looking to apply for the MBA program at IIMs and other top business schools can do so through the official website, iimcat.ac.in. The portal has recently announced that the registration deadline has been extended to September 21, 2022, 5.00 PM. In addition, candidates can now choose Imphal (Manipur) as their preferred city for CAT 2022.
This year’s Common Admission Test will be conducted in a computer-based format on November 27. Three sessions will be held for the exam, each lasting two hours, at centres in 150 cities. Admit cards for the exam are expected to be distributed to all registered candidates on October 27.
All candidates are required to pay an online application fee of Rs 2300, with the exception of those belonging to the SC, ST, and PwD categories, who are only required to submit a fee of Rs 1150. It is important to note that only applicants with a degree from a recognised university or institute with 50 per cent marks or equivalent are eligible to apply. However, there are relaxations on the minimum marks required for graduation for candidates belonging to the reserved category. Candidates are highly encouraged to check the eligibility criteria before filling out the application form.
