Most Competitive exam CAT goes Online

The CAT exam which is used for admissions by most of the MBA institutes in India and most importantly IIM’s is going online. This move was contemplated in 2008 but, it will be implemented from 2009. CAT 2009 will be a computer based test with a window of 10 days to choose from.
Students will book a slot in the designated 10 days and give the exam. 250000 students took the exam in 2008. That is some serious number and poses a large logistical challenge. Not as big as the electronic voting machines but a challenge which needs computers and Internet connection.
Students in most of the metros and to-be metros will not have a problem. But, students who are far from cities, computers and Internet might have a problem. No other details are available on how the CAT administrators will meet the new challenges.
Coming to the format of the CAT, the standard of paper CAT is not suited for a computer based test. Paper CAT is tough and requires a lot of calculations. The same thing cannot be reproduced with a computer based test. I am expecting the test makers will look into this and tweak the format accordingly.GRE and GMAT use a bin of questions and present the questions randomly to the test takers. The questions are recycled and so are the bins. Will the same strategy be used by CAT is something to be seen. There are pros and cons for the strategy. Lets see how IIM goes arround with this stratergy. The cost would also go up as it is computerized. GMAT and GRE are arround Rs 10,000 and the numer of people giving CAT also is huge.

MBA, is it the right time?

My friend is a current student at Wharton, he says that recruitment season is still very active. I've heard of very few cancellations. There is naturally more competition now, though. It could be that companies are still attending, but they're looking to fill less positions. Also, I think competition is increasing for consulting firms and other popular career paths. The situation has certainly added stress to the recruitment process - some students had jobs locked up at banks with the biggest problems after last year's internships. Even so, though, many find themselves still holding onto their jobs but now working at a new place (e.g. Barclay's). All in all, in my opinion, students are not overly pessimistic. Most are still working their way towards jobs while watching the crisis unfold.

Auto industry executive: Statistics show that cars that were built smaller after 1977 to make them more fuel-efficient had a higher incidence of accident-related fatalities than did their earlier larger counterparts. For this reason we oppose recent guidelines that would require us to produce cars with higher fuel efficiency.
Which of the following, if true, would constitute the strongest objection to the executive’s argument?
(A) Even after 1977, large automobiles were frequently involved in accidents that caused death or serious injury.
(B) Although fatalities in accidents involving small cars have increased since 1977, the number of accidents has decreased.
(C) New computerized fuel systems can enable large cars to meet fuel efficiency standards established by the recent guidelines.
(D) Modern technology can make small cars more fuel-efficient today than at any other time in their production history.
(E) Fuel efficiency in models of large cars rose immediately after 1977 but has been declining ever since.
