    How to Decide CAT Coaching Online?

    How to Decide which is the Best CAT Coaching Online?

    Before you decide upon any CAT coaching online, the following things should always be asked for in order to make the most suited choice: 

    1. Past Outcomes: All institutes are seeking many positive results. Ensure that you concentrate on the ratio of the number of positive results to student enrolment count. Try also to find out how many final B-School admits have happened from the same coaching. 
    2. Demo Class: Typically, online CAT Demo courses are specifically built to offer special effects. It is safer to opt to go through an online class demo for CAT prep. You can get an understanding of the pedagogy and the degree of comprehension that you would expect from the classes in question. The questions the students have asked in these courses, and the responses they have got should give you an idea of whether to go there. If the questions you have posed are properly addressed, you will have the confidence to choose the correct coaching institute.
    3. Course information: Collect information about what the number of live sessions will be, which subject will have more lessons, batch size, and doubt explanation class availability. Ask for your course module, take some feedback that is already posted, ask them to send feedback from different dates to evaluate the quality.
    4. Lecturers: Identify how motivated the students are in CAT classes online. The online CAT classes serve their function if the teacher is able to build interest in the topic and teach the topic which is important to the test. Concerning the CAT preparation strategy, interacting with the faculty is preferable.
    5. Test series: The online training courses will contain enough CAT exercises. You have to check that the coaching institute has full-length mock tests and is able to provide you with the same in a timely manner. Assess whether or not the test series adhere to the style of CAT exams.
