CAT will set my MBA life

The Common Admission Test (CAT) is one of the toughest entrance exams in India, for admission into an MBA Programme. Scoring a high percentile in this exam remains the goal of all aspirants, who wish to pursue management studies in the country, as it can open the doors to some of the best Business Schools in India.

The IIM factor

The CAT exam is jointly conducted by all the IIMs, which are the premier Business institutes in the country. IIM, the most reputed brand in business and management studies in India, is invariably the most preferred destination for all MBA aspirants. The IIMs are governed by the IIM Council headed by India’s HRD minister, yet, are autonomous and exercise independent control over its day-to-day operations. This unique position gives the IIMs an edge over others, as they have the best of both world and are able to provide the best infrastructure, faculty, exposure to their students. The IIMs, over a period of time, have built a formidable reputation for themselves and have become the first choice for students, who want to pursue management studies in the country. The CAT exam, therefore, is crucial, as the IIMs accept scores of CAT. Doing well in CAT will earn the aspirants a call from the IIMs and take them closer to realising their dream.

Wide appeal

All MBA aspirants will, by default, target CAT and set it as their priority. Besides the 20 IIMs in the country, CAT scores are accepted by over 100 Business Schools and a few schools abroad, such as the Singapore Management University. The B-schools that accept CAT scores include some of the best government and non-government institutions in the country. The wide acceptability of CAT scores makes it a compulsory attempt for all MBA aspirants.

CAT and Placements

It is a fact well known that the best placements offers are grabbed by students of the premier B-schools in the country, the likes of IIMs, FMS Delhi, IIT, SP Jain Institute of Management and Research Mumbai and so on. Only a good CAT score can get an aspirant into such institutions and increase the possibility of getting a good job and securing his/ her future. The exposure that the aspirants get in top institutes is also a major attraction, as also having a big brand on your resume.

CAT is a milestone

CAT is the first and the most crucial step in the path leading to a good institute. It provides the aspirants to test their mettle and prove themselves, not at the district or state or zonal level but at the national level. Doing well in the CAT exam and scoring an excellent percentile acts a huge boost to your confidence and makes you believe in yourself.

Thus, the CAT exam is a window to your dreams and decides how your career will shape up in the immediate future.
