Kolkata: Global testing and assessment service provider Prometric, which was responsible for the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2009 – the entrance examination for Indian Institutes of Management and other leading management institutions – Tuesday assured a hassle-free test this year.

CAT 2009 became a disaster after technical glitches and server crashes at several centres across the country.

Prometric said it will upgrade the physical and technical infrastructure of all test centres.

The internal inquiry has revealed that the problem during the last year CAT examination was due to unlicensed software and non-updated antivirus at some test centres, Prometric managing director Soumitro Roy said here at a press meet.

The company has decided to purchase original software licenses and give it to all the test centres. The company is also figuring out hardware of the computers. All external interfaces would be cut during that period, Roy said.

There would be a separately trained team to check and re-check the software and hardware capabilities, said an official.

Roy also said stress is given on security and security checks like thumb impressions and images of candidates would be used while appearing for examination in order to check proxy candidates. IANS
