Out of 6,346 candidates who took the Common Aptitude Test (CAT) on 24 October 2013, 53 were differently-abled ones.
"Prometric is committed to providing all candidates -- regardless of physical ability -- a fair opportunity to be judged on their merits. Today's delivery of the CAT included a dedicated scheduling of DA candidates. All testing candidates have completed their exams and the day has concluded successfully," said Soumitra Roy, general manager, Prometric India, in a statement.
The testing assistive devices that DA candidates were allowed to bring for the CAT, depending on the type of support requested, are abacus (without calculator), hearing aid, wheel chair, magnifying screen (provided at the test centre) and/or a scribe/reader, said Roy.
