IIM and Prometric have come up with a solution to the bug in their system. According to Prof. Satish Deodhar (IIM – A), convener for CAT 2009, students will be able to edit their information in their profiles. The “Edit profile” option will be made available to the students ten days from now. The announcement comes as a huge relief to the students, who had been in a state of dilemma since the online registration started.
Also, the students who bought new vouchers and re-registered will be refunded the amount. All other problems have also been taken care of, namely the state name being wrongly shown on the profile inspite of clicking on the correct option. Some students also had problems with the surname option, since most south Indians do not have surnames.
