CAT computer glitch to be short-lived: IIM director

Kolkata: Global testing and assessment service provider Prometric, which was responsible for the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2009 - the entrance examination for Indian Institutes of Management and other leading management institutions - Tuesday assured a hassle-free test this year.

CAT 2009 became a disaster after technical glitches and server crashes at several centres across the country.

Prometric said it will upgrade the physical and technical infrastructure of all test centres.

The internal inquiry has revealed that the problem during the last year CAT examination was due to unlicensed software and non-updated antivirus at some test centres, Prometric managing director Soumitro Roy said here at a press meet.

The company has decided to purchase original software licences and give it to all the test centres. The company is also figuring out hardware of the computers. All external interfaces would be cut during that period, Roy said.

There would be a separately trained team to check and re-check the software and hardware capabilities, said an official.

Roy also said stress is given on security and security checks like thumb impressions and images of candidates would be used while appearing for examination in order to check proxy candidates.

Picture of the Day

Due to the threats of riot and terror attacks, the festive season in India nowadays results in sleepless nights for the security personnel. Against this backdrop, the show of communal harmony in Malegaon by Ajantha Mandal cannot be more timely. The Mandal in a large hoarding portrays the real picture of the Muslim dominated textile town in North Maharashtra. It shows, Malegaon is where Azan in a Masjid and Shunkh in a Mandir go simultaneously. To further make its point, the Mandal plays communal harmony songs on a cassette-player in its full sound.
