Ahmedabad: Finally, the results of the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2010 will be declared tomorrow, i.e. Wednesday, January 12, 2011. Students will get to see their 'original' mark-sheets.
As per sources, the media reported that the CAT 2010 results were leaked online, on the official website itself. A URL was supposedly exchanged on several forums which lead to the CAT Scorecard page. According the link the results were for the CAT 2009 examination. However, when the roll numbers were entered on the website, the results that appeared were in fact for the year 2010.
Yet, all claims of the result being leaked have been disproved by the CAT 2010 Committee. It has been alleged that the website may have been hacked by someone, which is reminiscent of what had happened in the year 2004 when the CAT results had been leaked a day ahead of schedule on the website.
Moreover, another possibility is that the results were being uploaded on the website for test runs and someone from the organization made the results available on the public domain. Himanshu Rai, CAT 2010 Convener from the Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow (IIM-L) has said that he had no knowledge of how the incident had occurred and added that it would not be investigated further.
Furthermore, he added that they has been down the servers and will be uploading the results. Whatever happens meanwhile is not of their concern. The results will be available officially on January 12.
