Apparently, many test takers confirmed that the pictures did appear in the afternoon batch of CAT. The CAT 2016 image was posted around 4 pm when the timing of the afternoon slot for CAT 2016 was 2 pm-5 pm.

Rajendra K. Bandi, Convener, CAT 2016, in a press release, stated that the total number of applicants who took the test was 83.6 per cent, an increase from last year’s 82 per cent. He added that the test was conducted smoothly in centres across 138 cities in the country.
Students’ reactions on CAT 2016:
- “Some guy from Bangalore took his phone with him in exam hall in slot 2 of exam. He clicked the pictures of questions and posted it on a Facebook CAT preparation group. I don’t understand how he could take a phone inside exam hall. On the other hand, we were asked to remove our shoes, socks, and even jackets outside. He posted around 8-10 questions of VA and LRDI. As soon as I came out of exam center, I got to know about this from my friends which added more to my despair after last quant section,” said Jatin Singhal
- He further added, ”It’s ironical that exams for the most prestigious management colleges fail to manage such basic things. IIM Bangalore should take a stand and accept the flaws.”
- “The exam was a bit tricky. In quant section, there were some ambiguities. Sign of square root and pie was incomprehensible. Although it was for all, leaving those questions and moving ahead was the only option. Overall it was average,” he included
- “If someone has the audacity to post something like this in a public group, he is not the direct benefactor of it, which implies criminal conspiracy and rampant malpractice involving multiple people happened in CAT 16,” said Ashish Jacob James
- “I think its a fake news. We should not pay any attention to such rumours. Go ahead with the preparation of other MBA exams,” said Arushi Kapur
