The Surat city for the first time will have a centre for the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2013 for admission to IIMs and other B-schools.
A new centre will also be set up at Udaipur in southern Rajasthan,a PTI report quoting CAT 2013 convener Rohit Kapoor of IIM-Indore said.
B-school aspirants from southern Rajasthan have in the past taken the test in Ahmedabad instead of Jaipur,while those from southern Gujarat did so in Mumbai or Navi Mumbai,largely because these centres are closer for them.
Besides IIM-Ahmedabad,six other B-schools in Gujarat accept CAT scores for admissions into their programs. Registrations for this years tests are to open from July 29.
