    yes you are eligible. a person who is a graduate in any discipline or is in the final year of graduation can apply and appear for CAT.
    you shall need to prepare well for CAT which is a highly competitive examination and tests a student's verbal ability as well as quantitative aptitude. there are other entrance exams for entrance into MBA colleges as well such as SNAP, XAT, MAT, CMAT, NMAT.
    also keep in mind that you shall need to apply separately for various colleges.

    Prepare well and try to score as high as possible so that you are able to get into a good college.

    all the best

    Re: Eligibility for appearing in CAT for MBA?

    Dear friend,

    You are not eligible to sit in CAT exam currently because you are in second year now.

    Candidate who had completed his/her graduation from recognized university with minimum 60% marks in graduation can be eligible to sit in CAT for taking admission in IIM.

    Candidate appearing in 3 year can also apply...

    You are not in 3 year or have not completed your graduation so you can't sit in CAT entrance exam.

    Thanks

    Hi

    You would need to have a graduation degree before you apply for MBA or CAT exam
    Go for any graduation course of your interest.

    As per eligiblity criteria
    1. You need to have a graduation degree from UGC approved college
    2. You should have minimum 50% marks in graduation
    3. 45% for reserved category

    So you should have atleast 50% marks in graduation.
    You can appear for CAT after your graduation and also in final year if you want to get into IIM without any work ex.

    As far as eligibility is concerned, you would be eligible if you get 50% in your graduation.
    However, for final admission there are following components

    1. 10th marks
    2. 12th marks
    3. graduation marks
    4. work ex
    5. CAT score
    6. GD
    7. Personal Interview

    If you get in top list. You would be admitted to IIMs

    All the Best

    hi,,

    you have following instruction are useful

    You know that Post Graduate degree is more valuable and big than that of diploma degree.

    Then why do you want to do diploma. yes if you have no time and you want job earlier then you can do it.

    But if you have time of 2 years then you should do MBA degree.

    If you have done pgdm already then you can get direct admission in MBA 2nd year



    that's it

    ALL THE BEST

    I hope this information are useful

    Hi Friend..........

    Eligibility Criteria for CAT Examination

    >> Candidates who have cleared the qualifying exam by means of any of these methods can apply for the CAT exam.

    >> Aspirants who have done their graduation from any university accepted by the Association of Indian Universities or the All India Council for Technical Education can apply for the CAT exam.

    >> Albeit this is the basic qualification required to write the CAT exam, the criterion will change according to the norms of the institutions
