Admission Test (CAT) could go two-tier in the future. The IIMs, that conduct the
prestigious B-school entrance, might introduce a preliminary screening to the
examination. This would mean that CAT would soon have a screening test like UPSC
to weed out poor candidates.
The information was revealed in a reply to an RTI query filed
by Rakesh Reddy Dubbudu, an RTI activist from the city in 2009 when CAT was
ridden with several technical glitches. The IIMs, however, not specified the
year in which the two-tier system will be introduced.
