Pecobians crack CAT 2006
Chandigarh, April 12th 2006, Express News Service
AS the final results of the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2005 were declared today, over 45 students from the city and the surrounding region were reported to have secured admission in the prestigious Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs).
One of them, Anterpreet Singh, managed to get admission in all the six IIMs, doing both the city and the Punjab Engineering College (PEC) proud. Attributing his success to persistant hard work, he said he was inclined to join IIM-Ahmedabad.
Kenny Hseih, another Final Year student of PEC, scored 99.98 percentile in CAT, getting admission into five IIMs. A visibly elated Kenny said the results were not entirely unexpected. His choice is IIM-Bangalore. Even as the final results trickled in, Kenny was reported to have scored the highest in the city.
Saurabh Bharadwaj, too received final calls from five IIMs — all except IIM-Bangalore.
Reported to be one of the toughest B-School entrance tests, CAT saw 1.5 lakh aspirants during its written test in November last year. At the Chandigarh centre alone, there were 8,300 students sitting for the exam.
Among other successful candidates from the region are: Deepak Garg (IIM-C and IIM-L), Gurjodhpal Singh (IIM-A, IIM-L, IIM-K), Shipra Chadha (IIM-C, IIM-K), Akhilesh Negi (IIM-A, IIM-B, IIM-C, IIM-K).
