The organising IIM for CAT 2019, Indian institute of Management Kozhikode, has successfully completed the process for the largest MBA entrance exam of India, CAT. IIMs will be announcing the final CAT 2019 results from May 08 onwards.
Announcing the successful completion of the conduct of CAT 2019, Prof. Debashis Chatterjee, Director IIM Kozhikode, said “CAT 2019 was not only a challenge in terms of the sheer intensity of record applicants but also due to the emerging threat of the spread of Coronavirus pandemic across the globe during the concluding phase of the exam. However, this proved to be a surmountable hindrance as IIM Kozhikode and other IIMs were able to complete the process by quickly adapting to the needs with the aid of technology and virtual personal interviews. I am delighted that this year we saw a more diverse gender ratio among CAT aspirants. Also pleased to share that IIMs will be announcing the final CAT 2019 results from May 08 onwards and we are eager to welcome the successful candidates into the IIM fold.” He also added that the Institute will now hand over the responsibilities for CAT 2020 to the next organiser IIM.
