NEP will create "education markets" and prevent poor people from receiving quality education: CPI
MUMBAI: The 2020 Common Admission Test (CAT) for top class IIMs and other B schools will only be two hours long, as opposed to three earlier. In addition, in order to meet social distancing norms during the Covid-19 pandemic, the IIMs have decided to hold the selection exam in three sessions instead of two on November 29. This ensures that there are fewer students in a center during a given session. Not only the IIMs, but also the entrance exams for other B schools have seen changes to make the process more convenient for aspirants during the pandemic.

Himanshu Rai, director of IIM-Indore, the organizing institute for CAT 2020, said: “We will hold the exams in three instead of two sessions this year. We decided to make these changes to ensure that candidates get their first preferred city choice while socially distancing themselves. “He added that the IIMs couldn’t expand the exam centers without first testing them. Each of the three sections in the newspaper that ran an hour earlier is reduced to 40 minutes each.

IIMs extended the registration date to 5pm on September 23rd. There will be no further extension. The institutes will publish the relevant changes shortly.

Exams conducted by recognized universities like NMIMS and Symbiosis have made the exam process more convenient for students. With NMIMS, NMAT (NMIMS Management Aptitude Test) aspirants can opt for a test center or an online supervised exam at home. Ramesh Bhat, acting vice chancellor of NMIMS, said there could be students who do not have access to the internet or computers. “To make the exam more convenient for them, NMIMS offers both options,” he said. Symbiosis allows students to take the exam twice and use the better of the two grades for admission.
