While CAT 2016 first slot 1 was conducted peacefully, the questions from the second slot were leaked on Facebook from a Bengaluru based exam centre. However, this might not be true. Find out!
Right when everyone thought CAT 2016 was conducted successfully, pictures of slot 2 were rumored to make rounds on the Facebook. While around 1.95 lakh aspirants were taking the CAT 2016 exam, when many noticed screenshots of the paper’s questions circulating on social media and going viral. These screenshots looked like they were leaked from one of the Bengaluru exam centres. These questions were from the DI and LR sections of the paper. However, was the paper actually leaked?
It was only after a day of CAT 2016, when CAT conveners released an official notification stating, “We wish to inform and assure everyone that the CAT Exam 2016 has concluded successfully. There was one incident of malpractice that was promptly detected and has been dealt with by initiating the due procedure of law. This incident has in no manner compromised the integrity of the Test and the CAT Administration requests you not to pay any heed to rumors or insinuations in this regard.”
Therefore, it is good news for all the aspirants that none of the rumours is true and that the candidates would not have to take a re-test. However, the CAT authorities have plugged the so-called ‘leak’ and have taken required action.

In light of these problems, IIM Bangalore’s capability of holding an examination has been questioned. Despite multi-level security, how were the pictures taken when no phones were allowed. This incident has led to questions on the credibility factor of the test centres and has proven to be a huge blow for all the genuine students who have slogged throughout the year.
