The CAT 2016 Result has been finally announced by IIM Bangalore on 9th January 2016. The result has brought cheers for several students and especially to those who have scored 100 percentile in CAT 2016. This year, as many as 20 CAT exam takers have scored a full 100 percentile in the exam. All the 20 candidates belong to engineering background and are male candidates.
In the light of this news, Professor Rajendra K Bandi, convener, CAT 2016, said, “However, in the sectional results, many non-engineers and female candidates have scored 100 percentile.” In addition, while Thanking CAT Committee, he also mentioned that, “The untiring support of the CAT Committee, comprising admissions chairpersons of IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Calcutta, IIM Indore, IIM Kozhikode and IIM Lucknow, and the tremendous hard work by the CAT 2016 Secretariat at IIM Bangalore played a big role in enabling us to declare the results on schedule.”
As and when the results were announced on the CAT website, candidates were informed individually by text messages about the results and their overall percentile. Further, IIM Bangalore will announce its shortlist for personal interviews on its website later on Monday. Analysing the result trends, Arun Sharma, CAT coach who has cleared CAT 12 times and scored 99.97 percentile this year, said, “There has been a drop of up to 20 marks overall and section-wise this year. This is because of a tough data interpretation and logical reasoning section. The geometry portion in the quantitative ability section was also difficult. However, the scores in verbal ability have gone up. I scored 211 marks last year with a percentile of 99.87 but this year, despite a score of 204, I scored 99.97.”
In 2016, CAT exam was conducted on December 4, 2016. Approximately 1.95 lakh candidates took the test across 138 cities in the country.
