DNA India Report: Ignou seeks report from Yahoo on collapse of online exam - dnaindia.com

About 9,350 students were supposed to appear in the test for admission into the diploma and degree programmes in engineering under IGNOU: Indira Gandhi National Open University. The service provider Yahoo couldn't handle the load and the infrastructure crashed.

I'm thinking, the providers for CAT; Prometric folks are now under pressure. Do you think they will be able to handle the CAT load [the number of candidates appearing for CAT is HUGE!]?

Your take? Posted in: #Coffee Room

The number of students appearing for CAT is around 3L.

But The exam is scheduled for a week days time I think with 2 slots for the exam.

But this is also approximately around 22K people write exam in every slot its a challenge.

Hope it goes smoothly 😀
