10 important cities in Delhi NCR, which were the CAT test centres for past many years, are no longer CAT exam centres 2018. All the CAT test cities in Delhi NCR are now known as a single test city – Delhi NCR. Besides, it is not clear whether all the 10 cities are included as the CAT exam cities 2018 in Delhi NCR or this number has gone down. Till last year following were the separate CAT Test Cities in Delhi NCR:
 

Bahadurgarh
New Delhi
Faridabad
Gurgaon
Mathura
Noida
Ghaziabad
Palwal
Greater Noida
Sonepat

 

No Choice Available for Delhi NCR Candidates
The candidates from these cities in Delhi NCR have only one choice of test centre – Delhi NCR as all the cities – big or small, have been clubbed as single test city by CAT convening IIM Calcutta.

 

Travel Time to Go Up

A resident of Mathura, Noida or Ghaziabad may be allotted Gurgaon or South or West Delhi as its test centre. Your test centre in Delhi NCR may be 50 or 100 Kms away from your location.

 

The wastage of time due to running and travelling to a CAT test centre in Delhi NCR may occur. This is the first time that IIMs have created such a confusion. Earlier there were sufficient and clearly marked test city choices without creating any confusion. The changed allotment process of Delhi NCR Test centre, may cause more hardship instead of making the CAT test taking experience convenient and aspirant friendly for the candidate.
