Servers crash on first day of online CAT

As the Common Admission Test or CAT went online for the first time on Saturday, servers
crashed across the country at several centres.

Hundreds of students in Chennai, Bangalore, Lucknow and Chandigarh have not been able to take their exams and there is uncertainty as to when they will be able to sit for them again.

The computerised test is spread over 10 days, from November 28-December 7 for entrance into the prestigious Indian Institute of Managements (IIMs).

The IIMs for the first time have entrusted the task of conducting the CAT to Prometric, an American firm, which is organising the computer-based test.
