According to the notification on website, scores of 80 students have been found altered or tampered.

PrometricWhile Prometric, the company famous in screwing up first online CAT and selling student’s email ids to some spammy companies is fortunately not responsible for this screw-up.

It’s not yet confirmed that all those students have secured admission in any b-school or not but what they have realized that their scores were poor earlier and inflated to some exaggerated figure.

Some people believe that the goof-up may not be a result of technical glitch as the IDs are not in a series but as per CAT convenor Prof. Himanshu Rai admitted that despite being strong in-built mechanism to prevent tampering, there are still some loopholes in the system.

These are some testing IDs where discrepancies were found by IIMs.
