The move by India’s top business schools to take their CAT entrance test online turned embarrassing after malware-infected computers left a number of students unable to take the test.

Prometric, a Baltimore, Maryland, testing company hired to conduct the CAT (Common Admission Test), said this week that the testing labs faced technical difficulties mainly due to malware and viruses. It said on the CAT Web site that it has decided to reschedule the tests for the affected students.

Over 240,000 candidates registered for the CAT 2009. Prometric was to conduct the tests across labs in 32 cities in the country. The tests are continuing after the initial disruption.
