    Dear Sarthak, If you have decided to take up CAT 17, then I suggest that you contact Mr A Srinivas, an alumnus of IIM Indore and The ONLINE CAT Head of VistaMind. You can talk to him on 9900022975. However, you may want to also check some colleges to apply to and go for interviews.

    Dear Sanket, If you want to continue your business, then it makes sense to Register that. If it is a small business and can be done as a side business, then I recommend that you take up a JOB. Writing CAT without a Job for too long will be a detriment for admission to TOP B Schools

    Sumit, You would get a few colleges - Under SNAP: SIBM Bangalore/SIIB ; Under XAT, probably GIM, LIBA (If you have applied). At 78 percentile in CAT, you may apply to NIRMA, BIMTECH, IMDR Pune. You will get NMIMS Bangalore too. Go ahead and go for the Interviews. You can decide to join or not at a later date.

    Hi Shreya, It depends on what you want to do this year. If you have to get into an Institute this year, then share your Academic Marks. There are many institutes which do not take CAT scores. Also, which part of the country that you want to pursue your MBA in? What should be the Fees range? Your expectations at the end of two year MBA? We can help you based on these!

    Sai, The IIMABC calls are typically at 99.5+. Also, it depends on your Acads too. Work-ex will not be a problem, Suggest that you apply to NITIE, IITB, D, KGP and get a final selection (in New IIMs and probably other IIMs too). Then you can take a call if you want to write again !

    You may get NMIMS Bangalore (hope you applied). With 65 in CAT, there are hardly any top 50 institutes which will give you a call. However, there are many other Bschools, which do not worry too mich about the CAT percentile. For these, you have to decide as to the Part of the Country you want to do your MBA in, Fees Levels, Expectation after MBA etc. Please do write back with these details.

    06:42 PM


    With 67 in CAT, there are hardly any top 50 institutes which will give you a call. However, there are many other Bschools, which do not worry too mich about the CAT percentile. For these, you have to decide as to the Part of the Country you want to do your MBA in, Fees Levels, Expectation after MBA etc. Please do write back with these details.

    Hi Ishan, Sorry in the multitude of messages, lost this! At 196 - NM Bangalore is almost sure. SIMS is good and you should go and give an Interview. But, since you are in the final year, it may make sense to write CAT again!

    I am afraid, you may miss the IIMs that you mentioned. Ultra New IIMs, possible. Apply to IIT KGP, Madras. NITIE (not a surety). There are however, other institutes such as IMT, XIMB and others that you will get a call from (if you apply).
