Ans. TIMES Coaching is India's prominent coaching and I have no doubt in telling that the coaching is full of well skilled and qualified faculty who consistently makes you believe that you can achieve what you thought and enhances you more better than what you are in present. As far as I am concerned, the faculty gave me every help especially in Quant and Reading Comprehension along with preparing for Vocabulary that today just because of these two subjects that I learn in coaching I am able to get one of the best colleges in Delhi NCR.

Ques. How did you manage your CAT preparation schedule along with graduation studies/working hours?
