I think we need to chuck out these Prometric and other foreign online testing companies. Lets the IIMs give the contract to an India-based company on which they can have a control and monitor continuously. Also people like ETS, USA, Prometric, Kaplan, etc are already minting money overseas and from Indians too.....lets have our one indegenous system which is more reliable.
Look even NSE did have troubles when it started off but like Prometric they didnt beat around the bush.....they acknowledged their mistakes and issues and corrected the same.

Absolutely... there is no doubt about it.

Whenever new technology or technique is tested some hiccups are bound to be there... remember the first prototype of a car didn't succeed in it's first attempt but look at the car industry now...

What happened is the skirmishes associated with launching a program of that huge dimension where participation and contribution of many agencies are involved. I am positive that by overcoming them with more caution and planning, it can be made successful. Failure is the step towards success is reinforced; but I have sympathy for the unfortunate candidates' tension and disappointment.

There has to be an initiative from anywhere... it may not be quite successful but it will pave the way for good... paperless culture... and transparency...

Well a big NO! . The exams were handled by a reputed company who takes computer exams "PROMETRIC". you must have seen their names with NIIT or IBM exams. Seriously i was shocked to know the pathetic condition of CAT exams . Never expected this from Prometric atleast. But anyhow, the infrastructure of exams was misjudged and blunder happened
