CAT Deadline To Be Extended or Not?
Going as per the previous year's trend, there are chances that IIM Ahmedabad might extend the deadline for CAT registration. Last year, the registration deadline was 16th September but it later extended to 23rd September. However last year, the extension was given due to COVID-19 and low registrations received. This year, the cases have been declining and there is no data available as of now about the number of registrations. So, the authorities might or might not extend the IIM CAT deadline.
