The CAT 2023 registration last date has been extended to September 20th, 2023, from the earlier date of September 13th, 2023. The CAT Convener and IIM Lucknow faculty, Prof. Sanjeet Singh, confirmed this newly revised registration date. According to him, the date was changed to give students more time to procure the necessary documentation for successful CAT registration.
Extending the last date for CAT registration is not a new phenomenon and happens almost every year. It comes as a sign of much-needed relief for aspirants who are eager to take the CAT 2023 exam but have yet to register. It is also a good sign for those who have registered but have not been able to pay the registration fees.
The extension also comes in the aftermath of the many natural disasters that have rocked the nation and disrupted normal operations. Students affected by floods, storms, landslides, and other natural disasters now have seven more days to finalise their registration for the CAT 2023 exam. But the exam conducting body has also clarified that they won’t extend the date further under any circumstances.
