CAT 2019 TEST CENTERS

The CAT Exam was conducted in 147 test center previous year and considering the popularity of the exam, more and more cities are getting added to the list of CAT test centers for letting the aspirants gain more accessibility to appear in the MBA Entrance test. A welcoming move for the CAT aspirants is that last year IIM Calcutta had added 7 more CAT test cities to the list of the existing 140 CAT test cities. IIM Calcutta followed the general tradition of expanding the number of test cities which previous CAT conveners have been doing such as IIM Lucknow and IIM Bangalore. Since 2015, the reach of CAT exam is expanding across the nation. From 136 CAT test centers in 2015, at present the list has reached to 147 CAT Exam cities. The intent behind the gradual expansion of CAT Exam test cities is aimed at making India’s biggest B-school entrance test more accessible to the MBA aspirants from tier 2 and smaller towns.
