Very shortly the anxiety of CAT 2014 takers on CAT 2014 result declaration date would come to an end as the exact date of CAT 2014 result would be announced soon. Responding to MBAUniverse.com query, Dr Rohit Kapoor Convener CAT 2014 has shared “Soon we will announce the exact date of declaration of CAT 2014 result”.

CAT 2014 takers have started getting panicky as the exact date of CAT 2014 result has not been announced. Sharing the concern of 1.70 lakhs of CAT 2014 takers, MBAUniverse.com preferred to ask the CAT 2014 convener Dr Rohit Kapoor to know and convey with IIM aspirants the exact date of declaration of CAT 2014 result. Considering the plight of candidates, CAT 2014 convener Dr Rohit Kapoor has assured that the exact date of CAT 2014 result would be announced shortly.

Dec third week set in

Since the third week of December 2014 has set in and there is no sign from CAT Centre 2014 to announce the CAT 2014 Result Declaration date, it appeared that like other activities the CAT 2014 result declaration can also be delayed by a few days.

Raising the query with CAT 2014 convener has resulted in the most positive response that in next 2 days exact dates for CAT 2014 result declaration will be announced. Now there is no need to be anxious or panicky as the result is expected to be declared shortly and in all probability as per the originally announced schedule.

Dr Rohit Kapoor has earlier conveyed that final checks were going on to declare the results. The information was well shared by MBAUniverse.com with the CAT 2014 takers.

No Panic now!

It appears now that there is no need to worry about the result day although there may be ups and downs in scoring and percentile due to adoption of new scoring and normalization process. There could be surprises and changes in expected percentile due to changed exam pattern and different score normalization process in CAT 2014.

CAT 2014: Shortest testing window

During the past 6 years since 2009 when CAT changed its face from paper pencil mode to computerized exam, for the first time CAT 2014 the gateway to IIMs in admission 2015 was conducted in the shortest testing window of 2 days in 4 sessions on Nov 16 and Nov 22, 2014 across the country.

Late exam: Early result

Declaration of CAT 2014 results just a month after the exam and despite being conducted a month later than earlier CAT exams, is yet another achievement for CAT Centre 2014.

CAT exam in earlier years used to start in the month of October and continued upto the first half of November. The results in earlier years were announced after the lapse of 2 months from the close of the CAT exam. If you calculate this period from the date of beginning the CAT it will go beyond 3 months.

Positive impact

Early declaration of CAT 2014 result will also have positive impact on the process of  MBA/PGDM admission 2015 in IIMs and other top rated B schools like FMS, SPJIMR, MDI, IMI, IMT, FORE, BIMTECH, JBIMS, TAPMI, NITIE and many more.

It will not only help the B schools to shortlist the candidates for admission round in the month of January 2015 but will also enable them to start the PI process in January 2015 itself, offer final admissions in the month of February-March 2015 and begin the session immediately after that.

CAT 2014 scores: IIMs & Top B schools to admit more

Approximately 4K students are proposed to be admitted in 19 IIMs for the PGDM batch 2015-17. Apart from 7 older IIMs and 6 new IIMs, 6 more IIMs announced by Govt of India will start functioning in admission session 2015.

FMS Delhi, MDI Gurgaon, SPJIMR Mumbai, IMI New Delhi, IMT Ghaziabad, JBIMS Mumbai, FORE Delhi, TAPMI Manipal, BIMTECH Greater Noida, XIMB Bhubaneshwar, NITIE Mumbai and many more highly ranked B schools will shortlist the candidates on the basis of CAT 2014 scores.  More than 10 thousand students will be offered admission for the MBA/PGDM batch 2015-17 by the top rated B schools apart from IIMs on the basis of CAT 2014 scores.

Let Anxiety be put to rest

Dr Rohit Kapoor CAT 2014 convener and faculty at IIM Indore has already assured the CAT 2014 takers “We are in the activity of processing the results. Final checks are also underway. As far as dates are concerned, we will shortly announce it on our website. Request the candidates to wait for now”

The further assurance by the CAT 2014 convener to announce the exact date of declaration of CAT 2014 result shortly should now put the anxiety and speculation to rest.
