CAT Exam Centers 2019: Check State Wise Test Centers List
Updated on July 27, 2019
CAT 2019 will be held in 156 test cities at more than 400 exam centres across the country. There are 10 test cities of Delhi NCR which have been clubbed into one exam city as NCR. However, IIM Kozhikode in its release dated July 26 confirms that the candidates would be allotted the nearest test city to their address. In comparison to last year, number of CAT 2019 test cities have been increased to 156 from 147 to accommodate higher number of test takers. The important details about the CAT test venues in these CAT test cities 2019 are available on the CAT 2019 website. The name of the CAT test centre within the test city is indicated in the CAT Admit Card.
According to CAT 2019 exam convener and faculty at IIM Kozhikode, Prof. Shubhasis Dey, "CAT 2019 will be conducted in test centres spread across approximately 156 cities. Candidates will be given the option to select four test cities in order of preference. Cities and centres will be assigned to the candidates only after the last date for CAT 2019 registration and hence candidates need not rush to block slots and cities in the initial days of registration. The concerned authorities will try their best to assign candidates to their first preferred city. In case this is not possible, they will be assigned a city following their given order of preference. In the rare case that a candidate is not allotted any of the preferred cities, he/she will be allotted an alternate city. However, candidates will not be able to select the session because it will be assigned randomly."
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.
