online registration process. More information may be found on http://www.catiim.in.
3. “*” indicates mandatory field. The boxes marked with this symbol must be filled in or you will not be
allowed to complete your registration.
4. Ensure you have a valid and unique email address before you begin the registration process.
To register to take the CAT 2012, go to
http://www.catiim.in and click on the
“Register for CAT 2012” link. You can
register and schedule for the CAT 2012
from 30 July – 19 September 2012.
On the first screen of the registration
website, you will see two boxes – “New
users” and “Existing users.” The first
time you come to this website, please
follow the instructions for “New users.”
This includes candidates who
previously registered for CAT 2009,
CAT 2010 or CAT 2011.
For “New users,” you must enter your
voucher number. Use a coin and gently
scratch (as illustrated on the right) to
obtain your voucher number.
You will see a special set of characters
displayed on the screen. You will need to
retype the characters in the box
provided. These characters, called
“Captchas,” are a safety feature designed
so the computer knows a human is
entering the voucher number and not a
computer programme. If you have
trouble reading the characters, you can
click the audio icon or the refresh icon.
Once you have entered the Captchas,
click on “Begin My Registration.” This will
take you to the next section, which is
“Create a Profile.”
