It is understood that  Indian Institute of Management (IIM) authorities are toying with the idea of conducting Common Admission Test (CAT) on a global scale from next year. However, it is not yet clear whether students who appear for CAT held abroad would get admission to IIMs or the score would be valid only for admission to B-schools in their own countries.

IIM Directors, who held a meeting on Tuesday at IIT Kochi explored ways and means to make CAT more relevant to the market. The proposal is yet in a preliminary stage of thinking and the Directors will have to do some collective thinking before the proposal is given a final shape, the official communication said.

IIM authorities feel CAT should go international. There was a consensus the CAT in its present format focuses on quantitative ability and data interpretation, besides verbal ability and logical reasoning of a candidate, and doesn’t test an individual’s managerial orientation, and this needs to change, the sources added.
