Originally, the last date for registration was September 22, 2016 but his was given a five day extension as the number of applications had increased from last year.
Last year, the number of Persons with Disability (PWD) candidates applying for CAT was 901. This has increased to 938 this year. “In this category, the percentage of male candidates is very high (more than 80 per cent), which is something to think about. However, on the positive side, the percentage of female PWD candidates has increased from 14.76 per cent to 17.48 per cent. Small positive steps, but miles to go on this,” Professor Bandi, Convenor, CAT 2016, said.
