    The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) have announced the second phase of the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2009 to be conducted on January 30-31, 2010 for candidates who faced disruptions during the test and could not complete the test in the first phase conducted from November 28 to December 8th, 2009 due to the virus attack and computer crashing.

    The IIMs have arrived on a criterion (as following) to decide which student must be allowed to re-appear for the examination.

    • Those who could not take the test due to planned or unplanned closure of their test lab and were not rescheduled later in the first phase. (This does not include voluntary no-shows.)
    • Those who were rescheduled but could not appear for the test because of notice period of less than 48 hours.
    • Those who were rescheduled but could not appear for the test as they were rescheduled in a city different from their original choice.
    • Those who pressed the End/Quit button within the first 120 minutes during the first three days of the testing window and have not been rescheduled yet. (If a candidate in this category chooses not to take the rescheduled test, then his/her score from the first phase oftesting will be retained.)
    • Those who completed the test in more than 140 minutes of clock-time due to computer disruptions. (If a candidate in this category does not appear for the rescheduled test, then his/her score from the first phase oftesting will be considered null and void.)
    • Those who completed the test in 136 minutes to 140 minutes of clock-time due to computer disruptions would have an option to take the rescheduled test. (If a candidate in this category does not appear for the rescheduled test, then his/her score from the first phase oftesting will be retained.)
    • Those who experienced difficulties due to various kinds of disruptions such as frozen computer screen, blank screen, and data/graphic elements not displaying properly; identified through site reports recorded at the test labs and have not been rescheduled yet.
    • The candidates identified for the re-test in phase two would receive communication from Prometric by January 10, 2010
