Engineers Dominate CAT 2016 Results, 20 Candidates Score 100 Percentile

The results of Common Aptitude Test or CAT 2016 released on January 9, 2017. The results surprised everyone as engineering students dominated the top ranks. As per the report that was given by Prof. Rajendra Bandi, Convenor of CAT 2016, a total number of 20 candidates secured 100 percentile and surprisingly all of them male engineers. On the other hand, girls too scored 100 percentile sectionally. However, they are from the non-engineering background.

Most of these candidates are expecting calls from top-B schools in India, the popular ones being IIM-A, IIM-B and IIM-C.

Cool, interesting and funny. An ardent lover of animals and gets a kick out of Chetan Bhagat and Amish Tripathi novels. My favourite novel is 'The God of Small Things' written by Arundathi Roy.
