MBA is one of the most demanding degrees in the business world these days. In fact, pursuing MBA is a good decision or not is a topic of debate. The reason being MBA is a very expensive degree throughout the world. Hence mostly people choose to jump into the business world and earn money rather than pursue MBA by spending a lot of money.
But if you decide to pursue MBA over the job, then it is really good decision. A decision you will never regret!
To pursue an MBA, choosing the right entrance exam for getting into reputed B school is very important.
And when it comes to MBA, CAT comes in handy. The reason being it is accepted by the best institutes – Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs).
CAT is one of the largest MBA entrance exam conducted in our country. More than 100 non- IIM institutes accept the CAT score and release cut off after the results.
This year, CAT will be held in the month of December just like every year. If you want to appear in the test make sure that you complete the application process via the official website after meeting the eligibility criteria.
CAT Cutoff is released in the month of January after the results are out. CAT cutoff is released in percentile and it is very important to get good percentile to get into good B school.
Getting good percentile means getting 90+ percentile because usually the reputed B schools set the CATcutoff at 80-85. So if you aim to get 90+, you will definitely cross the cut off bar set by good institutes.
So start preparing for CAT right now to score more!
