Common Admission Test (CAT) is a national level management entrance test conducted by IIMs on a rotational basis for admission to MBA and PGDM programs. More than 2 lac candidates appeared for the exam every year. For the academic year 2018, CAT is organized by Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Calcutta.
Bikramjit Das appeared for CAT in 2012. He scored 95 percentile in CAT and he took admission in Regional College of Management. In the interview, he shares CAT Preparation tips, the experience of his journey of strategic planning and hard work while preparing for CAT.
Ans. Following institutes offered me admission on the basis of my scores
Ans. Apart from CAT, I appeared for MAT(Management Aptitude Test)
Ans. I preferred classroom coaching over the method of self-studying because they teach us professionally by showing us the positive and negative aspects of each and everything.
Ans. Yes, it is quite tough to get sufficient time for preparation but you have to make it work anyhow. As I was in the final year so enough attendance was an issue of concern, so only a particular schedule for your graduation subject and CAT can save you. So in my point of view make a routine and follow every day.

Ans. As I am not good with numbers, I tried to work on that area mostly. Mathematical part is too tough for me, so I tried to attempt full question paper every day. You can find them on monster.com/naukri or online free test sites. In that way, I have tried to move up my weakness to a stronger one. I think I am a bit good in English, that doesn't mean that I ignored that paper.
Ans. I followed the sites mentioned below to get all the latest updates related to the exam
Ans. I had to start with the basics because I was weak with numbers. So I gave my concentration on the fundamentals then started practicing every day. One of the most important things is to remember the shortcuts, formulae, tables and simple tricks.Then in the exam time read the question carefully and try to have a glance before solving.
Ans. Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency by How to Prepare for Data Interpretation for CAT by our own Mr Arun Sharma.
Ans. Actually I don't have any particular book for CAT, but many of my friends used few books like How to Prepare for Quantitative Aptitude for the CAT by Arun Sharma, we are a bit biased about Mr Arun Sharma as many CAT students follow him and Quantitative aptitude by R.S Agarwal is also a very good option, Quantitative Aptitude Quantum CAT by Sarvesh Verma.
Candidates should follow chapters like Interest, Ratio and Proportion, Speed, Distance & Time and Time & work.

Tips to prepare for Reading Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning
Ans. Practice is the key to success (practice previous years as well as mock tests), read newspapers, read books/articles, watch English movies.
Ans. Try to learn at least 5 new words daily, keep a dictionary with you (e-book dictionary is also helpful). Play some English learning games, read as much as possible and try to have your conversations in English.
Ans. This is my favourite part as I myself was in this kind of situation, anyway just try to clear the basic fundamentals as early as possible, then to take mocks and fine tune your strategy. Try to solve various types of questions instead of the same type of questions every day. Try to understand your strong area and work on that as well. But mostly try to remember the shortcuts and tricks to solve problems in exams.

Ans. Don't think too much, in this phase you just need to relax. Just enjoy and try to listen to chill music, have a fun time with friends. Don't take tension whatever the situation is, hope for the best, just believe in yourself and go for the best. Keep your mind away from any kind of tension and fear. That's it.
Ans. The interview was good for me thankfully, the interview process comprised 4 rounds including GD, HR round, Director round and Technical round. So the college decided to take 2 rounds of interview on the 1st day and fortunately, I successfully cracked the 1st round as well as the 2nd round too. Afterward, they asked me to come next day for the remaining rounds which were the director and technical rounds.
So the questions I faced were:
1. Tell me something about yourself briefly?
2. As you have a commerce background, then why BBA/Why not BCOM?
3. How many colleges have you applied till now for your MBA?
4. What is marketing (in your language)?
5. Do you know who Dr Philip Kotler is?
6. Why do you want to join our college?
7. Do you have the capability to represent our college in the future?
8. Basic marketing questions (7ps, 4ps etc.).
