    Re: Is CAT an easy entrance exam to crack? How to prepare for it? What to do to get admission in IIM through CAT?

    Hello friend ........

    Let me first tell you that anybody can not just comment upon whether the exam is easy or tough. The exam is easy when one is properly prepared for it and it seems hard it the individual has not prepared for it.
    But ya I can tell you that with proper preparation and confidence anybody can crack the exam.

    CAT is the Common Admission Test for the admission in the IIMs and other top B-Schools for pursuing the MBA degree.
    The eligibility for the MBA exam is that candidate should have the graduate degree with minimum of 50% of the marks (45% for the SC/ST) from any discipline but should have taken the graduate degree from the recognized university/college.
    Also the candidates in their final year can also apply for the MBA entrance exams.

    In CAT entrance exams the questions are basically asked from the sections :
    1)Quantitative Ability
    2)Verbal Ability
    3)Data Interpretation
    4)Logical Reasoning

    Noe for getting the admission in the IIMs and other top B-Schools you need to score good percentile(approx 98 percentile) in the written exam and then based on the percentile score you will be called for the group discussion and personal interview.

    So for the preparation to get into the IIMs you need to first develop the fluency in the conversation. So in order to develop that you may join in any spoken classes and also make a habit of reading the English newspapers regularly and take to the people around you in English. This would make you confident in speaking and enhance your conversation skills.
    You also need a good vocabulary . In order to increase your vocab you need to learn 20 new words daily along with their meaning and try to use these new words in the sentences so that you can remember them easily.This way your word power will also increase and make you even grammatically strong.
    Also you need to practice the Quantitative aptitude from some books regularly . This would help you to develop the necessary skills for tackling the Quantitative Ability problems.

    Here are some of the book for the preparation of the CAT exam , you can purchase them from any book store and practice from them.



    Apart from these you also need to solve the previous years CAT papers and other sample papers for the practice and get an idea about the papers and this would even help you in gaining confidence in solving problems.

    Also you can join in any of the good coaching institutes like TIME , IMS , Career Launcher available in your area. These institutes would help you to prepare for the CAT entrance exam and they would provide you the necessary inputs required for the CAT exam.

    Hope this would clear your doubts.

    Best of luck.

    Don't think CAT to be a easy nut to crack. I think you are not aware of CAT competition till now. So, please first get aware of CAT phenomenon first.
    Before appearing for CAT, make sure you have completed graduation with atleast 50%(you can apply if you are in final year).
    Communication skills are given significant importance in this paper. I think you should join some good coaching for CAT.
    Selection procedure involve written exam, Group Discussion & Interview.
    Some good coaching: TIME, Career Launcher, MBAguru.
