  Copying from CAT 2009 FAQs:

If I have made any mistakes. while registering for CAT 2009, can I make changes later to rectify?

If you make mistakes while entering the application data, you will need to buy a new voucher and re-register yourself. However, rescheduling is allowed where you can choose a different test center, date and time of your test, of course, subject to availability.

Note: If you re-register or re-schedule, you must carry the most recent admit card and attend the most recent test session.
things went on smoothly during cat registration..

Registered for CAT at around 10:30 A.M. I was able to register successfully but when I recieved the confirmation mail from prometric team, I didn't have the NON-IIM institute option highlighted there. However, to not to miss out on the date and the slot, I buyed another form, but to my surprise I got the same error again... When I called them again,this time the fellow said that there is some technical error, we are looking into it... u try resending you application form in evening or tomorrow.

 I have confirmed with many other people and they are also facing the same issue.

This is totally crap.. When I tried removing the sticker to see voucher number, number also came out along with sticker. I don't know which kind of glue they have used. Somehow I managed to read the number. I tried registering after that, it displayed an error message saying ,

  Name in my School Leaving Certificate is :- <FirstName> <FatherName> <LastName>. Exactly three words. (No words like Kumar, Bhai, Lal or so smile)

The Instructions are: Name and surname: Enter your name as it appears in the school leaving certificate. You can decide what part of the name should go into the “Surname” and “First Name” fields.

How do I split my name in two parts?

Is it okay If I type <MyFirstName> in First Name field and <MyLastName> in Surname field. Ignoring <MyFather'sName> at all. (Sorry! Papa).

Please reply.

There is no check for not selecting SSC HSC in education qualification.

I selected Bachelor's Degree-Complete and proceeded....there was no check and the submission process proceeded.

I had to buy a voucher again to fill the form with the SSC an HSC details this time.

In the end there should be a summary report about the form that has been filled and then it should ask for confirmation before the final submission.

It is not there and that is why people are making so many mistakes and have to buy vouchers again an again.

'An unrecoverable error has occured, please try again later.'

please guide me what to do?

i am trying from morning.

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by amit jain - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 03:48 PM
 

What I feel, the reason of the problems you guys are facing is that, you have tried logging in when whole crowd is trying to bang the system i.e from morning 10:30 to 12, Many of my friends faced these issues. Some of them end up paying second time.

Few of us decided to do the registration after some time, when the congestion eases and it helped. So please be little patient(though i know you will have tension of not getting desired slots, but imagine, just rushing also wont help).

Secondly, there might be an issue with the internet speed, I would suggest not to login thru 56KBps dial up connection, a few of my friends faced problem then they went to Reliance web world or used any broad band connections in any of the frnds place.

By now, most of the things are going smoothly.

Imp: Have some patience when you loggin to the register site, due to heave traffic it will take anything between 5 to 10 mins to open the first page. After getting the first page, no delays for sure.

Happy form filling  smile

Hi,

I bought a voucher from one of the branches in Bangalore. I tried registering on the website but it said 'Invalid Voucher' Number. I called up the help line number, they have asked me to keep trying and if doesnt work out, they said, the only option is to buy a new voucher!!!

So much for waking up early and rushing to the bank to get the voucher. sad

Hi,

In my voucher two characters are not clearly visible. Either they are BB or E3. first 'B' has little missing part(but faint marks are still there) which makes it look like E. and 2nd 'B' have line missing which makes it look like 3(very faint line is still there).

I have gone ahead with BB part(as they seem more genuine) and able to register. Got  confirmation and admit card also.

My query is:

1. Will they allow to register only with valid voucher number or are submitting all voucher numbers(may varify later.)

2. Is there possibily another voucher number with E3 instead of BB
(rest all same) ?

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by srini vaas - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 04:11 PM
 

@Deepak Rana

Answer to your question 2 -  Yes. There is a possibility of another voucher with E3 instead of BB.

Source - My friend had called the CAT customer care and asked the exact question. They said though the chances of that happening are very less, it cannot be ruled out.

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by Deepak Das - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 04:15 PM
  Hi all,


one  point..
At Bangalore ,one person could get 2 vouchers..
At Hyderabad, No restriction on the number..
At Pune, One voucher per one person..

So its better to be present yourself and get your vouchers.

This is what i feel would help everyone..

Please see the video released by Prometric to fill the Data..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQzvSq15RLQ&feature=player_embedded

There is no need to hurry to fill up the slots...You might not get a slot on 5th or 6th december because everyone is going after those slots . Please check re-check every minute details..

Donot forget to
1.Selecting all 3 SSC,HSC and BTECH Complete or Ongoing ..as this are checkboxes and as you select them a text box opens up asking you the details for the same.
2.Donot scratch your voucher roughly.One of my friend missed out a letter of the voucher and when he called back the prometric team asked him to buy another one.

  Friends,

There is an important thing in FAQs,

It goes like,

Can I make any changes to my postal address after I have submitted my application form?
No changes can be made to the application form once it is submitted. However, in case you are shortlisted, please contact IIM directly before the Group Discussion and Interview.

so in case you have a mistake in address, I think you dont need to buy a new voucher.

Hi Pixel,

Go through FAQs,
19.If I have made any mistakes. while registering for CAT 2009, can I make changes later to rectify?
If you make mistakes while entering the application data, you will need to buy a new voucher and re-register yourself. However, rescheduling is allowed where you can choose a different test center, date and time of your test, of course, subject to availability.
Note: If you re-register or re-schedule, you must carry the most recent admit card and attend the most recent test session.

 

U need to get new voucher. This is really bad even after having online application why cant these ppl allow editing of details.

 

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by Deepak Das - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 04:51 PM
  Point 1 :
Click on the Checkboxes for SSC ,HSC ,Btech ..
then you would get a text box to fill in the scores and the board .

For Btech/Mtech..
you would select college type...then the state and then the college/university name..

I think most people have missed out on this part of the form filling..

Apart from the F/M thing which i think is a one-off case mostly caused by clicking of arrow keys unintentionally when the drop-down box is alread selected.

before pressing on NEXT ,go through the form again..

  Gauraw,

It means you havenot checked the NON _IIM instis..

So you can do two things:
1.Call up prometric and ask them for clarification.They would certainly ask you to buy one more voucher..If you buy a new voucher..fill it again CAREFULLY so that ur CAT scores can be used by other colleges..

2.If you go ahead,you would not be able to apply to colleges that take CAT scores..For Ex--MDI,NITIE,etc...

Weigh up your options and then decide..

Guys who missed out the HSC/SSC or the NON-IIM thingie...

Think twice before buying another voucher...

a guy i know, missed the Non IIM thing and was asked by the cust care to buy another voucher and refill. When he tried with the 2nd voucher, the prob recurred and he again dint get the NON IIM option on the ack mail. so he was 2800 poorer and that too w/o a test date..

 

One of my frnds' frnd is working in prometric cust care itself. [Ironically my frnd also missed the HSC SSC thing ] His frined told him to write a mail (from contact us tab) , if there are a considerable amount of mails (which i am sure would be the case) then prometric would take up the case with IIMs. Based on IIMs response, the particular candidates may edit/refill with the same voucher or buy a new voucher. This would, however, take 48 hrs. But if IIMs ask you to REFILL the form then i guess you would loose your slot and will be asked to book another available one (though not sure abt it, they may just ask  you to mail the SSC HSC details and it would be updated on the backend).

 

BOTTOMLINE IMO DO NOT SPENT ANOTHER 1400 BUCKS. IIMs myt be stupid enuf not to conduct the entire thing online, ( wat was the need of the voucher? we cud hav done the entire thing online, just like say pvr bookings ) but certainly they are not MONEY HUNGRY..

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by Deepak Das - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 05:10 PM
  I donot think there would be problem because of .COM or .CO.IN ..

Might be a problem at the Prometric end,might happen that their mail servers are responding slowly because of huge load..

I got my details immedtiately...but one of my friend got it after 1 hour even tho he was using gmail..

So for all of you who are not getting the mails immediately..

Login again and resend..Keep on doing it from time to time..

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by TG Mohan - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 05:11 PM
 

No need to upload the photo or signature.Simple steps are:

1.Simply scratch the voucher with a coin gently.Do not use force or try to take out the hologram.

2.Take a printout of the last three pages(Pages 17 to 19) of the CAT REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS LINK given in CAT website.Fill it up by hand and keep it ready in front of you.

3..Enter your voucher details.Then follow the user friendly steps.

And u are right, there are many people who are facing this issue...

So don't worry...

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by TG Mohan - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 05:25 PM
 

The most important thing in this CAT registration is the absence of the display of the summary page.Normally a summary page is displayed as per the instructions given in the CAT REGISTRATION instructions link,(after completing the filling up of all the details).

What is happening is otherwise.After completing all the steps,you do not get the summary page at all.We do not know what we have done in previous steps.

If a summary page is displayed at the end,then it gives one opportunity to review and correct(by going back with BACK TAB).I do not know why this is missing and does not happen,even though it is mentioned in the registration instructions.

TG SHOULD TAKE IT UP WITH IIM`S

I dont know how they can make this kind of technically wrong (in many aspect) website ONLINE for CAT.

CAT People please pay attention to this problem.  Someone please tell CAT people.

I made 2 mistakes: -

1) I too forgot to mention my SSC & HSC marks ( I am sure that most of institues counts these marks for final shortlisting) and I realised it after I have booked my slot. There must be a validation for this, and without these information they shouldn't allow to save.

2) I also didnot mention my middle name because there were fields for only first name and surname. so, I entered only first name and surname. And when I realised that I missed my middle name, then I checked the FAQs, there it was mentioned that put your surname in surname field and rest all in first name field. This is very ridiculous

However I have written a mail to Prometric. And haven't received any reply yet. These people are only concentrated on money making and they don't have any feeling of candidate's mental status.

  Hi,
I selected all the courses thinking they wont give a call for which i am not eligible. What do i do now. Will this be a issue. Do i need to fill the form again by buying a new voucher.
Moreover if i fill again then do i need to select the date and time for test all over again or the last one will be valid.

there should be some provision to edit the form and if not proper warning messages should be displayed.

worst online filling form till date.
Other institutes are far better in respect of online form filling.

Hi ALL,

I noticed this peculiar thing when i bought the voucher today morning.If you go through the voucher.Down near the bottom, its written "you will need to enter the voucher serial no. and the voucher no.(found under the scratch area)

1)First of all i have received the admit card and throughout the registration process and did'nt find a single text box to enter the serial no.

2)For god's sake there is no scratch area in the entire voucher.We have to pull the hologram out GENTLY to see the voucher number hidden beneath it .We all know how a scratch area (I hope some of you might have participated in scratch and win contests) looks like.

Guys one more info:

Please be VERY CAREFUL while you pull out the hologram from the voucher.Pull it out gently.If you pull it out in a hurry, i am sure you'll have to buy another voucher.It's really astonishing to see such big holes in this entire registration process.(HSC & SSC being probably the biggest)

  Thank you Total Gadha for information regarding the mistakes from prometric website.

I did not fill the form today, i will fill the same tomorrow. i had planned of taking the voucher as soon as bank opens but did not do so due to some mental obligation ( i did not fill it because i beleive in astrology and other such things and in astrology it is mentioned as it is the day which all 9 comes in the date so dont start important things today, i may consider taking it tomorrow. i wrote my simcat 3 today at 9 am that too with all 9's i did not clear the cutoff. i am so concerned with this and believed it. ).

sorry if i am interrupting others in the solving their issues. (Accept my apology in case i have disturbed.)

Thanks & Rgds,
Pavan Kumar.

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by raul dkwel - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 07:28 PM
  Kudos to IIM for coming out with online registration. Agreed, it isn't hassle free and IIM certainly many lessons to learn here.
 My view:-
1. IIM could have provided a payment gateway (payment using credit card or debit card) instead of insisting on buying a voucher. It may have avoided the hue-n-cry at all Axis banks all over India. Perhaps, there can be option  of online payment or purchasing a voucher.
2. Secondly, the most rampant issue - not filling SSC and or HSC percentages. A process should have been existed where it ensures all the mandatory fields are filed. (its a cakewalk ,ask any software techie) A conformation dialog box before navigating to next page would have been of great help.
3. 'Edit' button must have been provided,perhaps few details like name,user id non-editable ..and option to edit rest of the field until one week after completion of last date for registration. wat say fellas? This would have saved the anxiety of lots of brethren and eventually saved hard-earned excess Rs.1,400.

I must say option for re-scheduling is a good move. IIM did come out with a lovely change,kudos to them, but it does has a few glitches. Hope,IIM learns some lessons here(for a change!). Expect them to soothe fellow aspirants by providing a 'edit' tab.    wait n watch!

@Dagny,
           IIM can take example of Totalgadha.com...ask me why?
1. Inorder to enroll for TG,one has the option of paying through credit card or off-line payment. secondly,I notice one can edit forum posts until one hour after submission of post. isn't that kwel !
  appreciate your technical team. IIM..beg,borrow or steal this idea,plsss

   " Lakhs of people will get it correct in first time" !! How could IIM people just thought that... they should have made editing possible...even my voucher no got erased when I peeled off the tape. Is 1400 rupees a less amount? I never liked the Idea of IIM going online in first place.
Americans made Electronic  voting machins, only to resort to Ballots again. 
This wont be successfull in Long run.
I have to visit some other city to get this voucher , It was not available in my native city. And it cost me a full day. Don't the IIM people know the importance of time?
" first come first serve is a rubbish Idea " . what if people dont have time to fill the form in girst few days , and those filling last may not be free on weekdays ( weekends will get filled quite early).
And what about the SURPRISE ELEMENT  of the CAT? We'll get to know the format on the very first day... ANd everyone will be lost in the gossips in these window of few days. the anxiety will continue for many days. And we  will keep visiting websites for the QUESTIONS that appeared

 0/ 10 FOR this format........ boooooo

i am done wd the whole reg but i get 2 pc increace if i had filled only final yr avg.
damn

There is a problem with Bachelor's Degree % ; In the new FAQ released, the eairler discribtion says

"Bachelor’s Degree Complete: Compute the percentage of marks obtained as per the norms of the university/institute. If no norms exist, enter percentage of marks obtained for all the years/semesters of the degree course. "


But later in the 'CAT 2009 Registration Proforma'

it gives diffrent procedure to calculate %

"______% If complete, percentage of marks obtained during the final 2 years of schooling "  
 

So the question is will it "percentage of marks obtained during the final 2 years' or ' percentage of marks obtained as per the norms of the university '

  The quality of the voucher scratch area was so bad that when I pulled it for the number it tore off...I somehow by defacing the scratch area from behind could see the invert image of the code written there...I had to take it to a mirror and see the exact letters or digits written there...I made three mistakes...!

  THE SSC and HSC was a mistake in the part of the prometric site i believe.. It didn't show up on the page.. and even if it was there didn;t they do some Pre validation chks.. i mean these guys are gonna take the CAT test.. and can't design a simple interface.. the IIM's wud hav been better hiring some skool students to do it.. wud hav cost them a lot less...

I almost destroyed my voucher.. coz i was wonderin wer the damn scratch area was.. I really doubt wat the exam is gonna be like.. a real BIG mess on day 1 of just registration..

Guys.. all of u who hav made errors in HSC or SSC.. dnt go ahead n buy a new form.. just b patient n wait.. n just hope that u dnt loose out on slot.. and the wierd thing is that even wen HSC and SSC details are not asked(which is a parameter for shortlisting) they go ahead to send the final Admit Card.. i mean wat kind of validation has been done??

  I guess u didn't forget.. i believe it didn't prompt.. accrding to two of my friends.. and since this is a common Interface error on the prometric site. i suggest u should wait for some time. I'm sure that they will come up with something cause many ppl made the same mistake. Anyways that was just a suggestion. u can go ahead n get a new form if u want.. but next time on make sure.. that everythin is coming on the page.. if not dnon't submit..The site has got a lot of bugs.. the most imp and basic validations that even a kid would do while designing a site is all missin.. wat is the idea behind makin it all online wen it is creatin hassles..

Neways hopefully thins will be resolved at the earliest..

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by saurabh pandey - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 08:36 PM
  With so many people facing problems with online registration, this new system surely has had a "not so smooth" start.

Kindly note the following points. They might help.

1. One can "Peel off" or "Scratch" the hologram on the voucher in order to view the voucher number. One has to be very careful while peeling off the hologram as doing so in a hurry might result in your voucher number getting damaged. So, kindly do the same patiently.

2. The issue of the "NON IIMs" application part not being visible in the confirmatory email is being faced by a large number of students across the country. This error is as a result of a technical glitch on the prometric servers and is expected to be rectified soon.

So, please do not panic and do not rush to buy a new voucher. Many applicants have bought new vouchers and have still received the confirmatory mail with the same error. When a similar problem is faced by a large chunk of applicants, it is always rectified.

3. Please be very careful in filling up your educational details. You must check all the relevant boxes (HSC, SSC, GRAD, Masters etc.) in order to view the drop down boxes assigned to each (HSC, SSC, GRAD, Masters etc.). It is in these boxes that you have to enter the details. In case you do not check all the relevant boxes initially, you will not be able to find the drop down boxes for them and will miss out on your details.

I hope this helps...In metal we rust \m/ \m/
I made one mistake but was saved..
by Khanjan Kotecha - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 08:39 PM
  Friends, Scratch the card and don't completely remove it.. I was any hw able to read the code but everyone may not be fortunate that much..
so
--> Keep your mark sheets handy.
--> Keep a separate email Id for the purpose of application if you want.(this will make things easier for communication)

1. Scratch the card with a coin.
2. enter your VOUCHER NO.
3. Enter details carefully
( Do not forget to select 10th, 12th along with your gradution marks and enter details carefully)
4. create your log in name and password.
5. Schedule ur test date and time.
6. Finish the procedure and check email. ( If you don't get the conformation don't panic. You can resend your admit card any time.)
7. Save it and print it.
8. Go back to your preparation.smile

ALL THE BEST.

by amit jain - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 08:56 PM
 

On a slight different note, I dont understand why so many people are facing issues regarding SSC, HSC? If one has diligently gone through the video and PDF provided by the IIMs before filling the form, this issue atleast would have been avoided.

Agreed, there are some techincal glitches but that is expected given the number of applicants accessing the site.

Before filling the form, pls go through the video or PDF( i am attaching here, provided by IIMs). This will help you.

I made mistake while filling up the area name
by Deepti Bhosale - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 08:53 PM

I got the slot i wanted and when I was once again going through my admit card, I found that I made a minor mistake.

I typed everything neatly BUT while entering area name in address instead of KOTHRUD i typed KOTHRUN ..

Do I need to take another voucher for one minor mistake of letter change?

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by Manish Mandal - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 08:59 PM
 

Hi TGites,

I also fall in league with so many other who filled up the form wrongly.

Instead of selecting board as CBSE for 10th & 12th, I had selected the states from where I completed SSC & HSC.

So, basically it counts my 10th & 12th as being from those state boards.

So, I had no other option but to buy a new voucher and fill the form again.

I think this is really shame on the part of both IIMs & Prometric who have designed and approved such a user interface which makes no validation prior to submitting the details. Neither it displays the summary of details filled before finally submitting so that one can verify his credentials.

Even other exams like XAT & SNAP gives you a window wherein you can edit your details. How can IIMs miss this basic concept?

Can't IIMs realise that there are bound to be mistakes when the aspirants would be in a haste to book their slots?

This whole process is a crap...

Hi Vimal.....

I am not going to buy new voucher. I will write to IIM and prometric about this for solution. BTW my all address is correct except state. I have put pincode also.

For post pincode takes first priority. so it will reach to our address. My city is Bangalore. so everybody know that Bangalore is in Karnatka not in Andemaan and nicobaar.

 

So need not to worry if pincode and other address is correct.

If u r selected by IIM for interview or GD u can change at that time ur address.

I ACCIDENTLY SELECTED BE(COMPLETE) INSTEAD OF BE(INCOMPLETE) AND THESE SO CALLED "MANAGEMENT PRODIGEES" MADE ME SPEND RS. 1400 AGAIN AND RE-REGISTER....THAT'S THE LIMIT OF MISMANAGEMENT GUYS....C'MON WE SHOULD DO SOMETHING....

THIS IS RIDICULOUS...!!!!!!!!

  I have had two major problems Please Advice:

1. I have only filled my Highest Qualifications , i.e. Masters , and missed out on SSC, HSC and Bachelors Marks, as there were no validations to stop me and neither were they made mandatory fields as should have been the case.

2. Due to some Mouse Scroll Bar Problem the State is showing as "Andaman and Nicobar" which was the first option in the dropdown instead of my Selected State: West bengal.

I really dont know what to do...though Have dropped a mail to Prometric.

I am a techie myself , working as a Web Developer , and I can assure you the Indian IT Companies would have done a better job than this.

A Bug thumbs down to Prometric and IIM Governing Body!!!They have let the Huge Student Community Down Big Time.

Hoping for the Best.

HOW CAN THEY EXPECT US TO DO GRADS WITHOUT SSC/HSC

WHO WOULD COMMIT A SUICIDE BY NOT APPLING TO ALL COURSES WEATHER IIM OR NON IIMS..WHEN 1 HAS NOT TO PAY FOR THEIR FORMS TILL NE GET CALLS

  for HSC marks , iims themselves published the registration instructions . Please look at page 13. They do not have HSC/SSC marks there. How could they blame a candidate if he/she thinks it is not mandatory. Also the site says all fields which are marked * are mandatory. Which means HSC/SSC marks are not mandatory(ridiculous it may be- even the engineering marks should not be mandatory as check boxes are not mandatory).Either IIMs should exclude HSC/SSC marks from their selection criteria or should allow us to edit. TG Sir thanks a ton for your re assuring words. Hope for the best , if not we have genuine case for us in terms of usability of site and we can sue the IIMS if we want

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by Deepti Bhosale - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 11:25 PM
  I think there is a loop hole in registration process.
Suppose there are 3 exam seats and 3 candidates (for time being consider there is only one time slot).
Candidate 1 submits a form and books seat.
Candidate 2 also registers and books a seat for himself.
Now candidate 1 realizes that he made a mistake, hence he re -register himself.
As there is no method to cancel the registration, 3rd seat will be taken up by candidate1. And when candidate3 will try to register himself, he will get no seat as all the 3 seats are occupied according to the database.

Has prometric taken care of this?
Re: Problems with CAT Registration?

  Thanks TG sir
Since the time I have found out that their was a 10th 12 th marks field, I ave been anxious as to how I could have been so irresponsible.
But I guess too many people(especially first time CAT takers) are facing this problem and hopefully the IIM s will add an EDIT button to the site asap. It s just silly buying a voucher again JUST to fill 2 fields.
It was a very non user friendly form, they should have anticipated the rush and confusion with this new format coming up and few would bother to read instructions properly and watch youtube videos.I for example have exams right at end of november and NEEDED a sunday slot, so rushed..but a prompt to fill the mandatory fields is a basic requirement that the silliest and most mundane websites fulfill.
Hope that i DONT have to buy a new form and go through the trauma! of having to choose a date that might coincide with my exams in college.

Seems like a lot of people are having problem with the form this year...
Try, Taking screen shots of the form before submitting, so you have some sort of proof( are not in self doubt)... Then you can be sure who is at fault..If it isn't you, why try buying new challans..whats the guarentee that it will work next time...
Get together on forums like TG/PG and write to/ call IIMS...If they are not responsive, well get it printed in the media....
Cause why should you be paying for their incompetency????????????

And for those of you who have already bought a 2nd chalan, well ask for a re-embursment on the 1st one...............
Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by Rakesh Sah - Wednesday, 9 September 2009, 11:46 PM
  Guys Read this... IIMs face heat from The National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled (NCPED) on their "NEW" registration process.

With CAT being conducted online for the first time this year, the differently-abled are feeling left out. The disabled rights groups
strongly feel that accessing the CAT IIM website will be a hassle for hundreds of differently-abled persons as the site is in no way disabled-friendly. The website opened for registration on Wednesday.

The National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled (NCPED) has written a letter to professor Satish Y Deodhar, head of committee conducting CAT 2009, pointing out various flaws in the newly-launched CAT IIM website. Javed Abidi, director (NCPED), said, "I have written to professor Deodhar about our issues with the website. The ministry of information technology in February issued the revised Web Access Guidelines, which mandate that all websites in the public domain should be WCAG 2.0 compliant. However, the CAT IIM website passes only on 3 counts and fails on as many as 11 as far as WCAG 2.0 Level A is concerned. Also on WCAG 2.0 Level AA, it passes on 4 counts and fails on 5. The website is technically not disabled-friendly.'' He further added that on the conceptual level, too, it had gone horribly wrong. "It refers to disabled people as DA candidates, treats wheelchairs and hearing aids as well as a scribe as assisted devices!'' said Abidi.

The visually-impaired and those with celebral palsy will have to take the services of a scribe or a reader as the website has no assisted technologies such as screen readers, adaptive mouse or adaptive keyboards. "Why do they have to depend on another person rather than being given independence through the provision of assisted technology?'' asked Abidi.

Moreover, Abidi added, the biggest discrimination against persons with disabilities is they cannot choose the day, time and location of taking the test. "They have to take it on December 3 and at a time and location notified to them. They don't have the option of rescheduling it unlike the other so called "normal candidates','' said Abidi.

No provision for disabled in online CAT

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?

  Hi Amandeep,

As I said earlier, we had called IIMs before even posting this thread as many students had paid twice. So I am sure they ARE aware of this problem now. Let's wait and see. All of you please understand that IIMs are responsible institutions and they WILL take care of you students. They are trying to do something that is a mammoth task in itself. Please have patience and wait for them to come out with a solution.

I am sure it has been a frustrating day for most of you and many of you have wasted money trying to buy the vouchers twice or thrice. Understand that it was not intended. It was not deliberate. Please do not curse IIMs or Prometric. They have not done it before. All of you are mature and decent citizens of this country. IIMs are our institutions and they are trying to achieve something. If they are successful, they would have taken one more step closer to be counted as great mamangement institutes in the world.

Trying to blame IIMs because of technical glitches in software is not a good thing. Have patience and behave like patient managers that you all want to become.

1. Many forgot to 'tick' the SSC n HSC. Please do check them. I myself know 7 ppl who hv committed this error.
2. I had to fill my form thrice cuz after the filling of 'application' page, it used to show me 'unrecoverable error'. In the third try, I shut my browser and did it all over again n it worked thankfully! I gues the server is overloaded so plz be patient. I was wondering...inn logon ne testing nahi ki kya..but then realized, it wudnt hv been possible...its just web traffic..everyone is trying to do it today to get the date n venue of their choice!!

This is what is given in the registration PDF: http://content.catiim.in/pdf/registration_inst_updated.pdf

When you get to the opening screen, you must enter your voucher number and a special set of characters that are displayed on the screen. The Voucher Number and the Security Code are not case sensitive. If you are having trouble reading the characters, you can either click the audio icon or the refresh icon.

I think you have to write your name in the surname field as surname field is mandatory (see the star over it) while name field is not mandatory.So if you have only one name than write it in surname field.

But it would be better if you call the authorities to be sure.
I am just suggesting.

And be sure to write your name just as it is written in your 10th marksheet and nothing else.
Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by Dagny Taggart - Thursday, 10 September 2009, 01:35 AM
  Nutty Nuts,

Read this :

  1. What are the identification documents required to be carried to the test centre?
    Candidate will need to bring their CAT 2009 Admit Card, voucher, a valid document as proof of SC/ST eligibility (if applicable). and one photo-identification to the test centre. Acceptable forms of photo identification are Driver's license, Passport, PAN Card, Voter ID, College ID, Employee identification card, or a notarized Affidavit with Photo, Signature, Date of Birth and Residential Address.
    Candidates will not be permitted to take the test if photo identification and Admit Card is not presented.
    Note: You will have to store all other personal items at the test centre at your own risk. Please do not bring any other items to the test centre, as they are not permitted into the testing centre.
    In case you are a Differently Abled candidate and have requested for special accommodations, please carry the copy of the authorization of the accommodation mailed to you by Prometric.

  2. Does the name need to match with the names appearing on the identification documents?
    Your name needs to be exactly identical to the name on your school-leaving certificate.
    Note: - If the name has been changed due to events such as marriage, you must show the relevant document mentioned below and submit a photocopy at the time of the test, interview and at the time of joining a programme.
    Marriage Certificate, Divorce Decree, Legal Name Change Document
So I guess your name on the certificate and on the photo id should match. This would be chaotic otherwise. A lot of guys use a middle name as well, but there was no option for writing the middle name. I think there should not be much of a problem until you have your admit card and your id and certifcate match.

Thank you all for sharing tips and problems, which I would keep in mind before and while registering. Hope I dont do these mistakes and rest all is prometric's system bharose...

  Why are people from Maharastra and other places being asked to take the CAT in Andaman & Nicobar islands?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lj3iNxZ8Dww

(click on this link and check the answer out for yourself)

By the way, on a seriously serious note, if Prometric is failing on every count possible as of yet (1.Demo Software 2.Registration Procedure) then what can we expect from it come 28th November and there on? what can we expect from it come 5th January 2010? (cat results) The IIMs should have clearly stated their entire induction process (from the registration to the result compilation) well before the registration process begun. Unfortunately the IIMs seem be nubile and amateurs at the job they have been conducting since past 45 years (or so). its sheer MIS-MANAGEMENT!

Prometric seems to have been lulled by the lust of the sheer amount of moolah that they eventually stand to make forgetting the fact that IIM's (CAT) are Quasi-government owned thus can be questioned by the commoner (unlike GMAT/GRE) and if tomorrow the HRD ministry or one amongst this TG crowd files an RTI application or seeks help from one of his friends at NLS, Banglore and decides to do something about such discrepancies at the highest level of education in India then Prometric along with the autonomy of IIMs should be ready for some good amount of trouble. Make absolutely no mistake about it. the simple thing is if IIMs weren't well prepared to conduct Cat Online this year then why did they even try and fail us? why break the halo over your own head IIMs? why? Only a fool like Prometric, which was OUSTED from GMAT by the GMAC (the owners of GMAT) because of DISCREPANCIES, has the right to do this. i guess, if Prometric fails this then even the GRE, which they are NOW touting and shamelessly pushing for across all Foreign B schools, will be a doubtful case as well.

I had high hopes on Prometric and the IIMs, i hope they don't eventually let me + n down (where n = a number that Prometric is finding it to even get bandwidth and server space for)

All's well that ends well but well begun is half done.
So, should i and my peers judge the day by the morning? smile


an EXAMPLE of an ERROR:

guys check THIS error out---> :|

______% Percentage of marks obtained during the first 3 years of schooling
______% If complete, percentage of marks obtained during the final 2 years of schooling
Type of University __________________________________________________ _________


Is the "error" wrong? well, colloquially yes, otherwise no, good enough Proof that PROMETRIC never adapted to IIM's (or even the first I for that matter and let's not even begin to talk abt the last M) but IIM's have adapted to Prometric.

  Do we need to pay extra apart from 14000 for each of the choices we select form the given 20 choices ? OR can we select ALL choices in the form by paying just 14000?

  Sir/mam

I have inadvertently put my class Xth percentage as 91.2 instead of 91.6 (I filled in less!!!).
What can be done now? Do I have to purchase the cat brochure and fill it again? If not, how serious can this mistake cost me in my future iim selection endeavours??

help..

  Yes, I understand that people might have different educational qualifications.
But, they should have put atleast tenth class as mandatory. The problem is in the rush most people have ticked the highest qualification. I think this is definitely wrong from Prometric as they didn't consider the mindset of the person who will fill the application.

It is a joke that you don't even get to know what you have filled so that in case you did some typo in your name or anything for that matter, you could revert back. This is really nonsense that you don't get to know what you have filled. If Prometric had done such a silly mistake for registration, I wonder what is going to happen with the exam.

I have done the same mistake of HSC/SSC, and I bought a new form as told by the Call Center fella... sad sad

  Hi Shivesh,

Yeah...indeed, you post is quite relaxing. I have here with same issue. I am from Kolkata, I have tried IIMC, IIMA, the prometric Global helpdesk[The US one] and of course the 18009039293 also.
Every one is pointing towards the 18009039293 number but for huge load that number was not reachable, I have tried more than 50 times from 9am. I have wrote a mail to prometric help desk and IIMA also. I was just planning for buying a new voucher. But after seeing your post I think I should wait for some more time probably 1/2 days more.
But brother you are really a lucky fella. How did you got the helpline number? Is it working? I have tried yesterday also. But probably it works after 6pm and before 9am [after and before working hours] evil
If you have any tips to make a call to the most coveted help desk number please share with us.

Regards,

Anupam

  Hi Anupam,

Well I get the helpline most of the times when i try though it pisses me off sometimes by being busy enough..and yes it keeps one on hold for a long time..as i said earlier in my post that they took my email id and i m asked to wait for reply from iim about the same..
immediately after giving them my email id i rushed back home and checked my email our of curiosity but i dint get any mail from iim/prometric as of now..so i dialled the helpline no again..and after a long hold the same lady (i remember her name Megha..she has good voice..) picked the call and i told her that i had a talk with her where in i explained my issue during the reg about forgetting to fill hsc and ssc %..and she told me that yes i remember that..then i told her that i dint get any mail from iim about the same though i left my email id with u..then she told me that i would be communicated within 48 hrs..she told smthing like on or after tuesday..
then i raised another question that many ppl with the same issue as that of mine have already purchased a new voucher for re registering and they were advised for the same by helpline ppl..then she told me that its upto a candidate whether to buy a new voucher or not but iim will be getting back to us with some or the other solution about all the issues faced by ppl..
the choice is urs..either u wait or buy a new voucher..good luck..

  Hello everyone,

I have got voucher today, my question is - it is written as first name and surname but where is middle name mentioned in the catiim.in

I can fill first name as PAVAN surname as C  ( in my school leaving certificate it is written as C PAVAN KUMAR ) but what about the middle name - where i can fill the middle name. should the name match exactly as per school leaving certificate or just C PAVAN.

If they ask for ID proof then in all the ID's it is mentioned as C PAVAN KUMAR.

Thanks & Rgds,
Pavan Kumar.

  I got the rare chance of talking to one of the candidate care guys through that contact number, and what he told is I need to wait till tuesday to get to know what is going to happen regarding these issues!!
By the way as I have already mentioned in this thread my problems are as lot of us...
1)I forgot to enter SSC and HSC marks and
2)Though I checked the non-IIM category, its not mentioned in my confirmation mail.
one request is if any of you guys get any news please remember to post here

The last three digits of voucher number are not recognizable ... I am getting a new voucher today... 

But I wonder... this is just the beginning... the mismanagement has just begun... where we are headed ....

I do not know if this has been discussed or not... but i want to bring to everybody's notice that all the centers are colleges... and infrastructure will be different at different colleges...  all those mouses and monitors will make a difference..       smile ... i hope the CAT does not turn out to be a lottery this year....

btw... I am already late.. I have to get my lottery ticket... 
all the best.

  Hi TG Sir,

Yesterday I purchased the CAT 2009 voucher and  peeled off the hologram from the voucher instead of scratching it . In the process , the portion of voucher containing the number got torn off into pieces. Somehow I extracted the number by joining the pieces and reading them inverted. I completed the registration process and received my admit card. But the admit card mentions that I need to carry the voucher to the test center. I have the voucher but without the number .Please advise if I will be allowed to write the exam.

I had mailed prometric team regarding my problem but haven't received any reply. Even the Candidate Care Representatives are giving erratic answers(some are saying that the pay in slip will suffice and some are suggesting to buy a new voucher and re-register.

Please advise

  I forgot to check the SSC and HSC mark under educational qualification and hence went on without entering any of my details for 10 and 12 th.The interface is really poor and it must prompt for mistakes like above.

If one has done Grad- Btech then he must have done 10 and 12th .

Is there any thing that can be done to solve the issue .........

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?

  Hi Atul,

Yes, I was advised by a candidate care representative to buy a new voucher and re register. He said it is mandatory to carry the voucher to exam centre and as my voucher doesn't have the number anymore it might lead to trouble . I am still confused as in what to do. By the way how bad is the condition of your voucher?
Re: Problems with CAT Registration?

i was registering with my details and accidentally filled in some wrong details such as pin code, also forgot to check the ssc and hsc checkboxes. i got up to do some important work and when came back the session had expired.
i dint even choose a test venue and slot but they sent me a confirmation that i am registered. what the hell is this ?
where the hell is my test venue?
now i cant register again as a new user as it displays the message voucher is invalid (i.e voucher already used)

i cant even login using username and password.
as it says both are invalidsad

how am i supposed to recover my username and password?

how could i get my password wen i forgot my username?

yes friends

avishek is right.....

i had a similar problem.i missed out on the hsc and ssc blanks.

had a talk with one candidate care service guy in the morning today at around 10 a.m.he asked me to wait till tuesday since they are working on that.so dont go in for buying new vouchers in haste.the guy didn`t ask my voucher no or registration id which means that no tampering will be done with our profiles and the selected slots.so even if we have to buy a new voucher after tuesday,our slots will remain intact and we will be able to book the same.relax,1400 lost wont account for much if we are able to make it to the IIMs.

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by Anupam Roy Chowdhury - Thursday, 10 September 2009, 11:49 AM
  Hi Shivesh, Atul, Ishan and others,

I just got the line to coveted help desk and had a discussion with fella over there. They have clearly mentioned, not to take any action till Tuesday. I clearly mentioned that the HSC , SSC marks and details are missing and bachelor degree has been shown as incomplete in my case. So I want to rectify the details. They suggest me to wait till Tuesday and by then they will add the edit feature to the online form details. They are not encouraging to buy a new form. Actually the problem is that probably 3.5 lacks students are writing for CAT this year as estimated and now 25% of the are having problem with application details. If all of them go and buy a new voucher then the Prometric-wala have to arrange new seat allocations for the extra 25% students. As they don't have the option for refunding the money so they can not cancel an appointment once booked. And such huge seat allocation with permitted testing environment is nearly a impossible task. So they are not asking to buy a new voucher now. They will put the 'EDIT' button by Tuesday.
I want to share something else not so serious. I was just standing on the queue in front of the Axis bank [was there to buy a new voucher again], when I got the line to help desk. After the call I told the whole incident to others there, within 15 mins the size of the queue came down to 1/4th. So guys we are not alone, and I think IIMs are really the temples of Modern India, they are always thinking about us. But to make a slight change for such a huge number of people is a mammoth task.
So please keep patience and have faith on IIMs, they will do the best thing for the us.

with best regards,

Anupam

Hi all,

Another person with the same problem.. I took an off from office yesterday and bought the form and filled it at 11 a.m yesterday and didn't fill my hsc,ssc... I'm just wondering wat in this world would've made prometric to design an application form without any data validation.. this is such a basic thing which they should've taken care..

one good news for all who has the same issue

I called the customer support right now and after continuous pestering over the cus care executive, he transfered the call to his senior.. one female...

I got a response from her telling that we'll be able to edit the page on tuesday.. I 've requested her to send a mail with all the info she has given me... Am waiting for her mail.. once i receive a mail i'll intimate u guys..

Don't worry too much abt this and go on with ur preparation...

This shouldn't get into our head and disturb our preparation....

U have to realise that prometric should be in a big pressure for this damn flaw in their registration page... It's their business and IIM collaboration at stake.. they can't play with student's money...

so let's wait till tuesday and edit our registration page

*********************************

TG sir, Pls inform them how big a problem is this and how important CAT is for us.. somehow pls let the IIM and prometric realize the importance of this... there are many ppl including me who are ready to shed another 1400 rupees.. but i just wanna wait wat kinda solution they'll come up...

Hey Anupam,

Your post just sent in a cool wave through my veins and got my soaring temperature down to a bearable level. That's an excellent information, can I say? I guess I should.

This means, instead of hitting the panic button, we just need to wait for a couple of more days before we go ahead and buy a new voucher. An Edit button would solve most of our issues (wouldn't create anything new, hopefully).

Thanks for all the blokes who post in here. That's a pretty nice gesture.

Cheers,

Krishna

I will wait for 24 more hrs and then call IIM -A if i need to buy another voucher...
 
Please speak with prometric as our representative as we do not have any one to listen to our grievances. I HOPE YOU WILL NOT LET US DOWN.
 
Thna you

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by Khanjan Kotecha - Thursday, 10 September 2009, 12:07 PM
  Yes I think they will come up with an "edit " option on the site coz of the logic by Anupam Roy Chowdhury that prometric have to arrange 25% more seats if they don't allow us to edit the info. The prometric is novice to Indian Competition.. So will learn lessons from this but IIMs are not and knows best option.. So have faith in IIM people they have always proved themselves best and continue to do so. Request to all candidates is to act patiently. Mistakes are part of human nature(IIMs/Prometric as well as we have made mistakes).
If we are crying that mistakes are part of human nature and we should be allowed to rectify it than the IIMs/Prometric also have made a mistake so give them a fair chance to rectify it.
Do not panic.. Have faith in IIMs.. and thank you TG for a great support.

even if i get a call from a good college they might throw me out showing me some legal clause that i forged information, what then.
and about the centres.
cities like ahmedabad have only 3 centers.
what if we wait till tuesday, and they say sorry bhai.
and then u get a centre in bangalore or a mumbai guy get his in kolkata?
surely wud be costlier then 1400 bucks

And i request all not to use yahoo id because i faced similar problem when i was using it for online shopping or online registration for almost 10 times or more. i got all the correspondence emails to gmail in about 5 min where as for yahoo i got about 2 - 4 hours later. You may get the mail a bit late.

  This is for those who messed up with their Address details. I had submitted wrong address and got to know about the mistake when I received copy of admit card. Hence I called up on the number (student care number) and the guy over phone told me that there is no need to buy another voucher if u submitted wrong address/ did some spelling mistake while writing it. ONLY when you get shortlisted/get call from IIM then in that case, you need to communicate with them and make correction of address.

  I found a problem in voucher. After removal of sticker, some glue remains there on voucher number portion and there is a good chance that any other paper kept with voucher would stick with it. So I think one should either clean that glue properly using wet cloth or otherwise one should paste a cello tape over it.

Hi Atul, Diptikant and others

I have the same problem as yours. I know my voucher number, but it is not clearly legible on the voucher. My serial number looks fine for now.

Logic says if your serial number is fine and you have the pay in slip, it shouldn't be an issue. But I am not sure what is right. I am not sure If I should buy a new voucher. I am just confused. Serial number is going to be critical. But if they want to act strict that day at the exam center, then its going to be a sham.

Please guys let me know if you have any news. That damned candidate care is not working. Its eternally busy.

Hi People,

Just when i thought i am very smart to fill up the form without any hitch, i have realized that i forgot to select the option for IIM K PGP!! This might be a new variation to already existing issues. Whtever said and done we are surely testing their site pretty well! smile. Anyway lets hope that by Tuesday people like me can edit their forms and we can save our hard earned rs 1400!

  I registered properly,but my contact address state went wrong.Since all the form validations are done on the server side all the dropdown values get resetted to their default values.

So My state got reset to Andaman and Nicobar in my correspondence address.

Very Very Poor design of the functionality.

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by Ishan Mishra - Thursday, 10 September 2009, 02:01 PM
 

With so many different variations and mistakes we can be sure that we dont have to buy the forms again and they will have to do something about modifying the details! Its suprising that they think of this possibility now, cause this was bound to happen. Also they could have learnt from XAT where one can register as many times and modify information.

Think they did not have time to do  UAT and we are the ones doing it for them!

  Shibasis,

Pls don't buy a new voucher. The damn andaman thing happened to so many people. Prometric people assured that edit option will be provided by Tuesday. So pls wait and don't worry. Why should u shell 1400 bucks 4 no mistake of u?
Re: Problems with CAT Registration?

  Hi Satyarth,

Yes. I got confirmation mail and admit card. Don't worry. U will get it too. Just wait and keep trying resend option every 1 hr or so. It will definitely come. Yahoo mail does take some time to get registration mails.

I think I did what most of the MBA aspirants might think silly...

I didn't fill the SSC and HSC details as I thought that column was asking for the highest qualification held.

There should be some provision to modify the details entered.

TG, kindly do the necessary to solve this issue.

Even I do not have the Non-IIMs mentioned in my confirmation email although I clearly remember that I ticked this option.

I called the Helpline no. provided to us regarding the same, and came to know that they may provide us an 'EDIT' option by Tuesday.

The errors are happening due to heavy congestion. So we all need to wait till tuesday.

Pls check all IIM for interview location, and den select da most approachable place in options.

people from category post  the caste certificate on the address mentioned on voucher .

Also scratch da voucher number slowly wid a coin,do not take off da sticker.

One query..How do the IIMs plan to differentiate between duplicate entries..i.e ppl buying multiple vouchers and booking a slot more than once..Since ppl have registered more than once for a slot, others may not get a chance to book the same slot even though it is not actually full.

NO ISSUES IF YOU HAVE YOUR VOUCHER NUMBER ILLEGIBLE. ITS ENOUGH IF YOU REMEMBER IT. THIS IS WHAT I WAS TOLD BY THE CANDIDATE CARE EXECUTIVE.

EXCEPT FOR THE NAME THEY WILL ALLOW YOU TO EDIT ALL THE OTHER FIELDS. SO DONT WORRY.

UNFORTUNATELY I HAD PROBLEM WITH MY NAME AS WELL. I CONDENSED IT AS "PAVAN KUMAR V R" INSTEAD OF "V R PAVAN KUMAR". SO THAT IS WHAT IT IS. I THINK THIS SHOULD PROVIDE RELIEF TO MANY.

I don't understand that how can it be possible, it is accepted once at the initial stage and later the same number is said to be invalid....

Please sort out the matter as soon as possible..

Please do the needful

  @ nishitha nagireddy, I think you should mail the IIM-A at admission@iimahd.ernet.in I have made the same mistake,so I mailed IIM-A and got reply that " Your name part is fine. No need to buy another voucher."
I have requested them to allow us to change the name as well because even if they allow us to take CAT with the current registered name we may have to face problem while applying to NON-IIM institutes.
So I think they will do something for this problem if more and more people take this issue to them. They are really positive and m hopeful that they will reply to this problem as well.

  hi every one ....

reagarding % of marks obtained in the bachelors degree registrtation PDF says
Bachelor’s Degree Complete: Compute the percentage of marks obtained as per the norms of
the university/institute. If no norms exist, enter percentage of marks obtained for all the years/

semesters of the degree course
I am from Mumbai University and my university considers only marks obtained in the final year while giving engineering degree .
eg My over all is 58 % but my final year percentage is 64.4 % . On the basis of my final year marks I have given degree first class .
So Mumbai university as per their norms considers final year only so I entered 64.4% as my degree percentage .
I hope this will not cause any problems .
Kindly confirm and clear .

TG sir please look in to these . Can you give me email ID of iims?

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by Dignified Madness - Friday, 11 September 2009, 01:50 AM
  Guys

I believe that since we aspire for the best management institutes of the country, it is imperative that we fill up the form correctly.  There is no point blaming the IIMs if you did not pay attention and did not fill up ur HSC and SSC percentage. I believe that the interface was quite easy to use.

It is very easy to rattle abuses at IIMs (which many people have done here), but before that just try to realize that it was your complacency that led to the error.

I believe that the only technical error was that the email did not have 'non IIM institutes' in it. However, the good news is that IIMs are providing an edit button in 10 days time and are also refunding the money for those who have bought duplicate forms(http://www.pagalguy.com/2009/09/editing-will-be-possible-in-cat-2009-registration-now/). Whenever a new system is launched, it is bound to have some error. While constructive criticism is always welcome, so that the authorities proactively pay heed to the grievances, abusing the authorities is no solution.

This whole process has given us our first lessons for CAT 2009 - be attentive and do not lose ur nerve while in a difficult situation!

All the best to all!
Re: Problems with CAT Registration?

  none of us here are abusive.. it's but natural to react a little when u expect some things from a reputed testing center and a much more reputed MANAGEMENT college.. its imperative for a programmer to have validations on his page for information that is mandatory, which sadly prometric didn do and i believe the reactions are genuine enough. testimony to that is the cat announcement of inclusion of an edit profile button now. i'm just glad that people at the top realized that not doing so would be cheating the candidates of their money and responded positively and effectively.
kudos to them for that.

All the best to everyone for cat-2009, may the force be with us all.. smile

I am not sure if we can see the IIM's again in the same light any more. What should have been a fairly standard procedure has been a total chaos. For all the talks of management taking place in those hallowed institutes, I am surprised nobody from IIM even bothered to have a closer look at the application form. Don't they know the concept of UAT(User Acceptance Testing)? How could they initially just shrugg off their responsibility saying that Prometric needs to be contacted in case of any queries? CAT 2006 was atrocious (full of mistakes) and I just hope they dont mess up in the online version of CAT.

I send this mail to IIM Ahmedabad admission mail-id

Hello
I could register myself for CAT 2009 successfully. However like many I am also confused over Name and Surname field.
I did my school education in Gujarat board and they write name in following format.
<Surname> <Name> <Middle Name> <Father Name>

So my name is school leaving certificate is
<Ghiria> <Vivek> <Kumar> <Vijay>
As CAT application form required First name and Last name, I registered for CAT 09 as VIVEK GHIRIA

Name on my PAN card is VIVEK GHIRIA and the same name is registered in the company I am working.
I hope my name will be considered correct. It would be of great help to me if you can acknowledge the same.

THEY REPLIED : Name is alright.

@Rupesh Mittal

I have already replied to the query dude...Its not a problem. I have the same issue. I mailed both Prometric and IIM A. Both of them have responded positively saying You just carry your pay-in-slip and remember your voucher number. That is enough. But nevertheless carry your voucher number in whatever state it is in.

Hope this helps. All the best

Cheers

hello , i want to tell my story....i got registered and got admit card....but my little bro destroyed that portion of voucher in which serial no. and voucher no. were written...then i read that bringing voucher to exam is compulsory along with admit card and photo identification ...so i emailed to catiim.com they told me this

"Dear Candidate,

Thank you for your email.

Please be informed that incase the voucher is destroyed, you can still test but must take the voucher even if it is destroyed and pay in slip along with the CAT 2009 Admit Card,a valid document as proof of SC/ST eligibility (if applicable) and one photo-identification to the test centre.

Acceptable forms of photo identification are Driver's license, Passport, PAN Card, Voter ID, College ID, Employee identification card, or a notarized Affidavit with Photo, Signature, Date of Birth and Residential Address.

We hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to contact us if any further assistance is needed.

if ur appointment date has changed... u always have an option of rescheduling the appointment (date, session and the test centre.), after which u will receive a new admit card.

about ISC marks... half of the people tell me that i have to fill the best 4 in isc and best 5 in icse... and the other half tells me to fill the overall percentage..
shouldnt it be according to the rules of the concerned board in which one gave the exam??

Cool? smile

  Hi bell-the cat,

What Rakesh is saying is correct. I just had a word regarding the same and they were asking me your name and voucher number. I had none, of course. But anyways, you can reschedule the test date by logging in to your account.

HI Rakesh,

Generally best of 5 option i used when you have to take admission college. For CAT, calculate your full percentage and fill it up.

@ Rupesh, Atul and Others,

Even I faced a similar problem with the hologram and my voucher number isnt clearly visible any more. I called up Candidate Care as well as mailed the admissions department of IIM A. The reply was same from both the ends. They said, No problem if your voucher number is not clearly visible. It is enough if you remember it. But they want you to carry your Pay-in-Slip on the exam date. Also carry the voucher in whatever state it is in. That is enough. Dont worry. Hope this helps.

Cheers and All The Best

  Hi

I am here with two problems :-
  1. I don't use my surname. I use only Kuldeep. But In the demo, the registration requires both first name as well as last name. In all documents, It's Kuldeep. What should I do now? Please suggest.
  2. While giving demo test at http://content.catiim.in/catdemo/index.htm, I figured out one problem. After attempting a question, if I revisit the question then it does not show the option marked by me. In fact, the summary sheet, at the end of the test, does not talk about the options marked. Correct me if I have wrongly interpreted the instructions or have missed something.
Waiting for a quick response. Thanks in advance.

Best Regards

For first problem please talk to candidate care center.
For second problem, yes I also figured it out that when you go to previously marked question the demo doesn't show it(i.e by showinh UNMARK OPTION) but the screen you get when you click on review is only a demo screen(it merely shows us the look and format of the screen) and not the actual screen(This is written on the screen that THIS SCREEN IS JUST A SAMPLE AND IS NOT TRUELLY REPRESENTING THE THE REVIEW SCREEN ). So I think the error would be restricted to the Demo version.

Please note that our records reflects an appointment for the CAT exam under your name, and you name appears as:



First Name: Vamshi
Last Name: Machanapally

Also be informed that inclusion of Middle Name on your Passport, would not cause any issues on the test date. However, incase you get short listed you are requested to carry your Identification document through out the selection process.

log into your id and resend the application and admit card mail.

Also, it might be possible that you have entered an invalid mail id. In that case wait for the Edit feature to be added on to the site. You can also change your email id to an alternate email id and send the application and admit card mail.

Hope this helpssmile

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by ROHIT K - Sunday, 13 September 2009, 08:20 PM
  Hi shivansh..

No need to worry about filling up your registration form.

Two things to remember:

1. You cannot edit your Full Name after you submit the application form.

2. You cannot change your user id after confirming it.(Anyways who cares what the user id is!!)

For the rest of the information you can always edit it after the prometric guys put up an edit button on the registration website.

For the name part:

1. Order in which the name appears in registration form and the order in which it appears in your school leaving certificate is not that important and you wont face disqualification.

2. Forgetting middle name/father's name is not a crime and you wont be disqualified for that too.(I belong to this league smile)


Things to remember:

Fill your First Name and Father's Name in the First Name Box and Your Surname in the Surname Box.

Eg: My SLC Certificate Name: Kunder Rohit Gangadhar

First Name: Rohit Gangadhar
Last Name: Kunder

How it appears in admit card? Full Name: Rohit Gangadhar Kunder

Doesn't matter if it is not exactly identical to SLC.

DO NOT MAKE SPELLING MISTAKES WHILE ENTERING YOUR NAME. NO ONE CAN HELP YOU FOR THAT.

Rest of the things are editable so not much of a concern.

Do fill up the form early to get your desired slot. If you made mistakes in application you can edit it later but you can book your slot now.

Hope this helpssmile

Rohit

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?

  Hi N. Karthik,

AFAIK it wont be a problem. There are many cases like you who have done the same. The support guys have said that it wont be a problem in their cases and your identity can be well established by the IIMs with the documents you are supposed to carry during interviews.

I would suggest you to drop a mail to the prometric guys. Get their reply in written so that it wont create any problems further.

You have to worry only if you have completely changed your name else no problems.

Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by ROHIT K - Monday, 14 September 2009, 03:36 PM
  @those guys not receiving admit and application emails.

1. Send an email to the prometric guys with your issue. Let them take stock of it.

2. It could be possible that you have entered an invalid mail id(spell mistake). If so, change it after edit button is updated on the website.

3. Also, once edit button is updated, you can try changing your email id(to alternate mail id) and resend the application and admit mail.


Guys don't worry much about it. You will receive the mails. The prometric center must have already received numerous mails regarding this issue. They have no choice but to take care of this(After all you paid Rs. 1400/-). smile

Hope this helps.

"Unmark each question when you are satisfied with your answer choice. If you forget to unmark the question, it's OKAY. The scoring process does not differentiate between marked and unmarked questions and both will be accounted to arrive at your score."
Does that mean if the marked answer is incorrect, then there will be negative marking?
Please reply
Re: Problems with CAT Registration?
by Kuldeep Sharrma - Tuesday, 15 September 2009, 07:28 PM
  Dear Candidate,

Please be advised, that while filling up the application form on the website, kindly enter your name as per the school leaving certificate. As "Surname" is the mandatory field in the form, please enter your name in the "Surname" field and you may leave the "First Name" column blank.

Please be advised that CAT DEMO is not having the full functionality, as will be in the real examination. In the real exam you will be able to see the answers you marked when you press review button.

Hope this information is helpful.

  Hi Chinkee,

Marking/UnMarking is a feature at our disposal for adding a tag to the question.
This tag can be used to review the question later. After getting satisfied about the attempt/not attempt of the question, we can accordingly mark or unmark the question to have a better overall review of our performance.

It has nothing to do with your scoring or negative marking. If you have selected the wrong answer, you will have a negative mark irrespective of the question being marked/unmarked.

Hope this helps.smile

I made a mistake dat many ppl else have committed.

 

I forgot to fill up HSC SSC marks and as the system is not fool-proof, it accepted it and form got submitted.

 

As I read in FAQs....what to do in such case.....I went and bought new voucher and filled it successfully.

 

Now there is a link on IIMCAT site saying we can change the profile also those who bought 2nd vouvher will get refund for it....!

 

Would they cancel one voucher and refund it??

 

Coz if not....I will be appearing for CAT on two seat No.s.....which in turn may disqualify me.

Guys,

Dont blame IIMs as you are trying for a seat in the same IIMs.

IIMs are not sitting ideal.They are keeping a close vigil on all the activities of prometric.I am able to edit my profile and allowing me to change my test schedule.Also getting email notification immediately.

Thanks to IIMs.

  Friends,
The CAT DEMO shows that if we attempt a question than we can not undo it. We can change the answer but can not leave it completely unattended once we attempt it. So keep this in mind and practice accordingly in your mocks.. All The Best.

  Recently i got an email (as well as a phone call) from Prometric saying that due to some technical issues they have rescheduled my Exam date and told me to login at IIM Prometric site and resend my application to get my latest admit card. I followed the instruction only to find that my exam date was the same as I had scheduled as per my choice. Did any of you receive the same call/email from Prometric? Please reply !!

  Dear TG,
     I have purchased a second voucher, booked a new slot and later applied for refund of my first voucher.
They asked for my voucher number and other details which I provided.
But the problem is that was 4 days ago and there is no further correspondence.
Please guide me.

Hi all,

I am not a serious aspirant but wanted to write CAT 2009 for practice. My father bought a voucher yesterday. The problem is that he has written my name as ‘M.Santosh Lakshman’ in the pay-in-slip whereas in my school records, it is Santosh Lakshman M. Will it be a problem??

  guy no problem
same situation with me
prometric reply
Please be advised for security reasons, editing of full name and user ID is not allowed. However, if you have filled your name incorrectly it will not disqualify you from appearing in the test

You are further advised to carry your photo identification document in which your date of birth and your address should be same as you have filled at the time of registration and in the admit card as well.
Please don't buy a new vocuher to register yourself.

Hope this reply is helpful.

  hi all
i made an error while filling up the form the 1st time and so i  purchased another voucher.The CAT website says "Candidates who have purchased an additional voucher due to registration errors will be  REFUNDED  for the second voucher" further it gives a link where we can request for a refund. Around 12 days have passed since i made this request.There has been no response from their end.

Has any one of you received a reply regarding this from prometric ?
Could you please share the contents of their reply ?
Has anyone already claimed a refund ?
What is the procedure ?
