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.
