CAT may soon go global

 IIM-Lucknow director Devi Singh said the prospect is being looked into as lot of queries from countries like Sri Lanka and some East Asian nations have come in. “Some B-schools in France have already started accepting CAT scores,” he told reporters.

Singh said the test could be held on the lines of Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) with provisions that students can take the exam during any time of the year. GRE and GMAT scores are accepted by b-schools across the globe.

Upbeat over the successful completion of CAT this year under the online format, he said, “CAT could also be made an independent body to hold the exam, which is a largest of its kind in the world. “We are seriously looking at it (making CAT a separate body) and a committee is also looking at it.”

He said the independent body could relieve IIM professors of the whole process of the test.
