The national-level test results, declared on January 14 this year, dashed the hopes of many CAT aspirants. From a total of 1.73 lakh candidates who attempted CAT 2013, 95,000 scored 0 marks.

Dissatisfied with the results, eight candidates had filed a petition seeking interim relief while alleging faulty evaluation and non transparency in the evaluation of CAT 2013 score.

The court has also asked the Ministry of Human Resource Development and Prometric, the US-based agency that conducted the examination, to respond to the questions filed by the petitioners. Though the petitioners also sought the admission process be stalled till the matter was resolved, the court declined this.

The CAT exam is conducted by the Indian Institutes Management for admission to management courses including MBA, at premier management institutes across the country. CAT 2013 was convened by IIM Indore and held from October 16, 2013 to November 11, 2013. The results were announced on January 14, 2014.
