CAT is fire wall between you and Top Institute
All MBA aspirants have one desire- to get into a top Business School in the country because this will get them good placement opportunities and secure their future. The only hurdle stopping them from reaching their preferred institute is the Common Admission Test (CAT), one of the toughest exams in the country.
The reach of the CAT exam is far and wide. More than 100 reputed business schools in India and a few international schools accept CAT scores. The best known brand for management studies in the country- Indian Institute of Management (IIM) conduct and accept CAT scores. Therefore, to get into the best institutions, doing well in CAT is absolutely necessary.
Window to your Dreams
CAT is a window to your dreams. It opens the doors to the best institutes in the country, which kickstarts an aspirant’s professional career. Lakhs of aspirants from across the country prepare to crack the CAT exam, making it one of the most competitive and toughest exams in the country. Seats in the top institutions are limited, which raises the bar for the aspirants.
Advantages of Top Institutes
Institutions create a name for themselves and build their reputation over time based on a number of factors that include infrastructure, quality of faculty, placement opportunities, curriculum, exchange programmes and so on. It is a fact that studying in top institutes provides an edge to the students and distinguishes them from their peers. CAT is the only exam that stands as a hurdle between you and a top institute. One of the biggest incentives for aspirants to take the CAT exam seriously and work hard for it, is the hefty pay package that a student of a top institute is more or less guaranteed.
How to Break the Firewall?
The key to cracking CAT is not only hard work but smart work. Aspirants must have an idea about the expected topics and the range of questions that may be asked in the exam. They must anticipate this, cover all these topics and questions exhaustively until they feel confident, then, if time permits, should look to go beyond them. Several aspirants who sit for CAT are more or less on the same intelligence level, what separates them is their self- belief, their preparation levels and the amount of hard work they put in.

The rush among people to apply for CAT has steadily been increasing over the years. In 2017, as in previous years, the number of applicants is expected to go beyond 2 lakh. Here’s a look at the number of aspirants who registered for CAT in the last five years.
