    CAT 2011 results are out and as expected, the catiim.in servers seem to be down. We've been trying to access the official results website since last 10 minutes and nothing seems to load up on our website. You already know how ecstatic we are in covering 'server down' related news; but this time we aren't. Over 250k CAT aspirants from India took the toughest management entrance test this year and we're sure that almost everyone wants to see the scorecard. We suspected the downtime and did some investigation on CrazyEngineers Forum. We might be missing out on something very obvious; but it seems that the hosting company that hosts catiim.in server isn't very reliable. This is what we found on their homepage: <em>For abuse issues related to the websitewelcome.com domain, please email your complaint with any relevant logs to abuse@websitewelcome.com. </em>

    We hope that the servers get back soon and are capable of handling the traffic. We wonder why CAT scores are directly texted to the candidates's registered mobile number? Checking CAT 2011 scorecards online is so 2009. We're keeping an eye on the catiim.in website. We'll request our readers to keep us updated with the latest information through comments below.

    Developing story.

    Update 1 [1:04 AM]: The site isn't back yet. It's taking forever to load.

    Update 2 [1:09 AM]: We somehow got the catiim.in to load on our Firefox (Chrome is still loading!). We tried pinging the server and got following response, which indicate that the server is up.

    Pinging catiim.in [50.116.118.131] with 32 bytes of data:

    Request timed out.

    Ping statistics for 50.116.118.131:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 3, Lost = 1 (25% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 324ms, Maximum = 336ms, Average = 328ms

    Update 3 [1:16 AM]: We're getting reports that many users are unable to get through the CAPTCHA. But that's still lot of progress. We're still stuck with white screens on all our browsers. Users can check the result on https://weaiimcalcat.catiim.in/ , however the page isn't encrypted. Give it a try.

  4. Last year it was declared at 12:00. The traffic is very heavy every year.
    The captcha images don't load! :( Last year the result opened as a PDF file.
    So, if you do get the results as PDF, don't forget to save the file. 
    Best Luck, people!
     
  5. As

    As

    Site does not load. As useless as any other thing in India.
     
  6. They did that with the test itself in 2012. I had to take the test again and that screwed my score! SHIT!
     
  7. got the text boxes and image still the pdf didnt open :(
     
  8. I am also trying to get my result from past 15 minutes but not succeeded....
     
  9. Grrr..the organisers need a lesson in "management". Trying to access the site since the past 43 mins
     
  10. can anyone give me the direct link?
     
  11. I cud access the website sumhow but the captcha text ws not being displayed despite repeated attempts..hence no luck in viewing the score.. 
     
  12. i logged in...wen to the detaqils page, submitted and it said invalid data....
    1 of the options said, i might have had to take a retest, whoch i could have forgotten to take....????
     
  13. Zzzzzzzzzz. Google can handle tens of millions of requests per second. The best management institutes in the world cannot hire a team of engineers capable of putting together a system to handle a percentage of that load. Wonder how great those managers really are. Zzz Just frustrated.
