2.18 Lakh Registrations for CAT 2015

The IIMs have managed to breach the 2 Lakh registrations mark this time defying early predictions that the registration numbers would drop this year compare to the 1.97 Lakhs registrations in 2014. The 11% increase marks the largest YoY growth since the exam went online. The IIMs decision to extend the registration deadline appears to have played a big role with over 80,000 applications in the last week of registrations.
