“Around 1.92 lakh students took the exam out of a total of 2.30 lakh registered eligible candidates.” This year’s overall attendance was approximately 83%, according to an official release from IIM Ahmedabad.
Three-fifths of the 1.92 lakh candidates who took the exam were female, while six-fifths were male. Two candidates in the transgender category also took the exam. In the midst of the Covid-19 outbreak last year, approximately 83.5 percent of candidates took the CAT 2020 b-school entrance exam.
