I am also affected by Prometric mismanagement in conducting exam. First of all I was supposed to enter at 1:30 pm and I reached my center at 1:00 pm. They kept me waiting upto 2:15 pm and after that I was made to stand in long queue for another 2 hours.As I entered my lab I was not given any kind of instructions and any instruction sheet. After about 45 minutes of exam i clicked to open the review page and then the server hanged or what and it showed your test is over.
After preparing for one year wasting so much money for my coaching and my time was I supposed to be given only 45 minutes of exam.
The Prometric and NIIT guys are not helping anyone regarding server or PC problems.
They are simply playing with the life of students and they are responsible for all these mental harassment to students.

Dude (Sumit),

I hate to break this to you - but judging from what you have written and HOW you have written, the odds of you cracking the cat are practically non-existent.

Not only your spellings are pathetic, your grammar and sentence construction is beyond repair(at this point of time). Also, considering your false confidence in your self, i reckon that your DI and Quant can be only marginally better, at best.

My sincere request is that you put some effort, get these things under control and try again next year.

While you are it, you may try and claim your test fee back. That perhaps, might be the only refund you can legitimately demand.

Regards,
Another CAT Aspirant.
hello guys..!!
yes i am also one of those students woh r affected by the mismanagment of the india's biggest managment entrance examination(CAT) i have selected the tine of 10:00am but my exam was started at 1:00 pm till then we all are get no information and we all are about exhausted phically and mentally too. m reached at 7:30 am and we didn't get any information upto 12:30 pm and upto that time m just standig at the center so every one can understand how i have given the the CAT exam.
i have spend my 1 year in preparing for it and now i get nothing due to just this mismangement . they are just playing with our future and life why they change the last 33 year patern when they can't handle this e-cat

I, Devendra Kumar Bansal, is a CAT '09 aspirant.I went to give my exam on 28th nov, 2009 in morning shift starting at 10:30 am at GLBITM, greater noida.After the completion of 40 min. of my test when i clicked for the next question, the question didn't come on the screen rather some red coloured crosses were being displayed.Being confused, i raised my hand to call the proctor of prometric.Then he inspected the situation.He was also surprised as it was the first case of such kind being encountered at that computer lab.After that he clicked on the review button n then without concerning me, he suddenly cicked on the 'END' button of the review window.On complaining he called the technical team which could do nothing except convincing me that they are trying to resume my test.After the test time got finished, some higher incharge of the test came.I asked her for the written proof of the incident that happened to me which she refused to give
I AM Dr.TAJESHWINI, A SENIOR GOVERNMENT DOCTOR, WORKING IN ONE OF THE PRESTIGIOUS MEDICAL INSTITUTE IN INDIA .

I agree you completely Mr. Sumit for the boldest step you have taken, go to a good platform to solve out this problem,

Every where in our country there is an agent working for the competitor Company in greed of some money .

what I think is any IIM employee may be involved in this, Its a real chess game and the winner is .

1) Western Institutes which all are planning to come India "Not to educate us but to take away our money from us ."

2) Prometric and sister concerns

and the biggest looser is :

1) Not only IIM

2) But the entire Indian educational system
and Students .



we all must get reunited against this mental Harsh and the real time chess game played by PROMETRIC and MNC;s

wish you a best of luck SUMIT
I was also the victim of the same. I was initially scheduled on 29th nov, 3:30 pm but due to technical reasons my test cannot start and i was sent back home. They said they would contact me within 24 hours but i didn't hear any call from them. I called them back asking for a rescheduled date and they assured me that they would give me 7th Dec for my test and instead they rescheduled it on 8th December saying there is no other option for me. I have my campus placements going on and that was the only date available to me and the guys on phone says me to choose between CAT and my college for it. This was so irresponsible from their side promising me to scheduling on 7th and reschedule it on 8th.

I would really like for some action to be taken against prometric,
@ Another CAT Aspirant.

Mr Anonymous,

From all I can read from wat u ve written, i noe ur really arrogant, rude, n ve no value fro others feelings.
Lets forget if Mr Sumit will crack CAT or nt, but im pretty sure that he atleast has the courage to come and voic out his opinion n reveal his identity(unlike a few who r hidin theirs ;) ).
N wat makes u a sole judge to evaluate him? with all due respects its a forum for ppl to raise their concerns n nt a place wir ppl can flaunt their english.

I appreciate Sumit for takin the stance, im proud that u r voicin ur opinion, if every other affected person did the same, it wld fetch all o them justice.

By,
Ajay(Another CAT NON-Aspirant)

Dude just take a chill pill rather than aspiring such low standard institutes please go for ISB and other institutes, CAT is now below par ! Get over with IIMs and their stupidity!
During the test everything was going well though it started around 2 hrs lately suddenly all of we giving the test got offline and we were returned back to the first page.Then we were told to sit calm and wait and after half an hour our test resumed.Unfortunately for some o[censored]s most of the questions were not appearing partly or completely.In my case my all DI section's graphs and diagrams disappeared only thing appeared was a corss mark which is normally shown when an image is not available in a website.

Seeing this i call for a sir, who took my Testing ID and informed imediately to prometric, as he said, and asked me to wait.My waiting lasted till the " You have ran out of time" message appeard.I was fainted and when i talked with the sir afterwards he told me that prometric may contact me.

I was trying the Helpline([protected]) number since then but could not fetch any response indeed a beep sound.I have been a serious CAT aspirant for this year and all the year was preparing for the day which left me unfortunate.
IN my test there was 5-6 qestion in quant in which required data was not there, in place of digits or diagram a red cross sign was there and when i called the people who were there for help they wasted my 3-4 min and then told me to skip the qestions, there should be a retest why should i pay for prometric and iim fault
I am another victim of this nuisance created by prometric and CAT. We were some 15 to 20 waiting for an unknown period to take the test. Firstly they call 2 hrs early. Got there by 2 pm.The test never began for us.Some person came and shut down the systems. We were told to wait for sometime. Then someone else told it ll begin by 5. Finally they were rescheduling it when the systems became ready. We started around 6.30pm.By that time I and others were totally exhausted..We had lost our concentration and mental state to write CAT.So the CAT and prometric must provide the compensation.Do hell with the security man.They dint even allow to take my hanky inside.And it was so hot inside, as against claimed by the prometric that the testing centres were air cooled. Sue them man! I took test in Garden City College, Bangalore

CAT is over, this is harsh reality ...CAT was an unfair game and IIMs are showing their true colours ...until now they were hiding their but now we all know that IIM people are no less than prowd swines arrogant enough to not accept their flaws and covering their asses by cooking diplomatic replies or maybe by corrupting media...somebody should sue them .If not students then they definately deserve fair treatment for what they have done!
This has shown us how selfish these IIM directors are and also shows their priorities for them saving their not so true "Reputation" is more important than being fair ...They are no less than hypocrites!
i DIDNT APPEARED FOR cat 2009, NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT IT, , , , , , STILL I FEEL FOR THOSE WHO LOST THEIR...WHATEVER...M SO NUMB AT THIS MOMENT AFTER READING ALL THE POST...REALLY FEEL FOE MY FRNZ...HOPE EVERYTHIING GOES FINE AND ALL GET FAIR JUSTICE
dear sir
i am student doing b.tech wana to share some things about cat 2009 which is joking
nothing else.this year cat exam is am not saying easy or tough but want to say something arrangement and paper setting, i do't know who was doing this either prometric or iim's. first i want to ex plane about lab in which exam was conducting, computer are arranging in such manner so that any body can see all computer of his row without turning his head if this does not believe then go and see all these things(at AZAD ENG COLL LUCKNOW) ok lets this is nice that which two are friends and say that u complete this section and i will complete this section, but unfortunately this happened because there is no predefined fixed order of sitting arrangement at the exam time, seeing this when see that two guys or girls cheating when no one sharing any things with me but they doing good as they want. ok let this is also good but i never excuse that team member who set this india's no one paper now i will not say this because of this examination schedule
where at last 3 or 4 days of examination paper was repeated and also available in market strictly saying at all coaching center of India because every day they has 10-20 member who is going only for learning not qualifying the test CAT. they had come and distribute among there student with information that this is best but not legal. i always to thank paper setter in which 30% question is repeated from this year paper which is unfortunately in the market, and 30% of paper is from top coaching of India( directly question from booklet or sheet which is provided to students). this year 50 % of the student attempting 90% question in best exam of MBA NOW NOT. i am not sure about cut-off but one things is sure that cut-off is very high this year, not because of paper level but some other reason which is mentioned above.

CAT 2009 has been a nightmare to the students this year. I completely subscribe to this complaint. Concerned authorities should conduct a retest to compensate the loss.

yes I am fully agree with the petition. To proceed further if you need any kind of help, just let us know.I shall be very happy to offer any kind of help from my side.
Although there are a lot of errors in how the complaint is written, I completely agree with what Sumit is trying to say. CAT 2009 has not been a fair exam for a large number a students. I support the demand for a Paper based retest.
hey man i m totally agree with u.if iim doing this type of management then they have no right to be a number 1 spot.i had also gave up my interiew in this recession time due to this cat.also there was huge difference in difficulty level of paper.so this is the clearly unfair for aspirant.thogh they claiming that we have standard statical method, i just only want to say that we are the person actually giving the exam.only we can kw how the difficult paper is...anyway i hope this thought can be worth.
My name is Puneet. I was scheduled for exam on saturday april 10th 2010 here in Usa.I did receive an email from the prometric and did confirm its scheduled on saturday at 8am. I work nights.After returning back from work at 2 am.I did dinner till 3 and studied one hour till 4am, then slept only one hour.As I had to leave my home at 5:30 am to be at test center by 8am.So I was restless, tired, When I reached the testing center, to my surprise, It was CLOSED. there was a security guard there, I logged into the visitors log book.and the center was indeed closed.It was very depressing and harassing afterall I had not even slept in night. I called that center phone on my cell and left a message for them and returned home at 9:20 am. I receieved called from lady after 12pm.I was sleeping that time, I called back at 4pm .That test center lady She didn't even apologize.She was rude and just gave me a number to call customer care, which I called just to find out that due to saturday it was closed.I know prometric will have me scheduled for exam again but who is going to pay for costly transport that I had to do to reach testing center, and what about the mental and emotional stress that I had to undergo.I am not sure whether I should sue the prometric for this, but I know a student has posted on review on another test center which has done this twice, and prometric just don't care and are playing with the careers, time money and efforts of students and causing them harassment. Please guide what should I do
