The appeals and petitions that disappointed 2013 CAT takers filed in various High Courts across the nation, led the IIMs to respond to the students' complaints for discrepancies in CAT scores.
At last, the IIMs during a Kolkata High Court hearing responded with saying that they are unable to provide raw scores to the aspirants who asked for it, since the data is with CAT 2013 testing partner Prometric. The next hearing is to take place in the Kolkata High Court, scheduled on 10 March 2014.
Former to Kolkata High Court, the Indore High Court had also notified the IIMs directing them to respond to the queries and questions of the CAT 2013 displeased test-takers who also filed the petition to know in clarity about the normalisation process used to evaluate CAT 2013 scores. The petition filers also took the matter to court to obtain access to their raw scores legally, before the admission process for 2014 academic session ends, which will conclude in April 2014.
Likewise, another group of discontented students who are IIM aspirants and appeared in CAT 2013 has sought a stay on the entire admission process from Indore High Court, this year. The students alleged that this year the scores of Common Admission Test (CAT) have large-scale irregularities and the admission to 13 Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) will not be unbiased.
Furthermore, upon the matter, a double bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court, accepted the their writ petition of the group of distressed students and issued notices to all 13 IIMs, coordination committee for CAT 2013 as well as Prometric Testing agency who in partnership conducts the computer-based test on behalf of IIMs.
