All Myths about CAT 2020 explained
Each year, the CAT exam is conducted in the month of November/December, and over 2 lakh individuals appear for this exam to get shortlisted for admission by top IIMs. However, due to the Coronavirus, there is a lingering doubt in the minds of many aspirants that CAT 2020 may face postponement or even cancellation! There is also concern about the placements that IIMs will be able to provide in a seemingly uncertain job market. A CAT expert with over 20 years of experience coaching students answers 10 key questions about CAT 2020.
During the course of the session, experts predicted that the MBA Class of 2021-2023, i.e., those who take CAT 2020 and make it to a top business school in 2021, will have the best placements that MBA batches at India's top b-schools have seen in the recent past. "I'm a veteran of 20 years and this is my prediction - if you get into an MBA program in 2021, you will be doing a lot of positive things for yourself; you will be doing a favor to yourself," says the expert.
"It is very unlikely that anything will affect CAT 2020. Forget that there is Coronavirus, focus on the fact that MBA education will be very valuable to you, especially if you join an MBA college in 2021. Don't worry at all, start preparing for CAT," says EXPERTS.
"While that may seem to be the case, if we take a look at past trends of what happened in 2008-2009 during the financial crisis, as well as what happened during 2001's dotcom bubble burst, it is possible that less people may actually attempt CAT 2020," predicts EXPERTS. "If this will be the case, now (June) is the best time to start preparing and get a head-start."
"I will go in-depth in my future sessions in the CAT 2020 Masterclass series, but on a broad basis, let's take a look at Data Interpretation. In DI, we have tables combined with QA concepts, bar charts, pie charts, line graphs, scatter diagrams, spider graphs, miscellaneous, and other graphs. If you spend 7 hours per week for 10 weeks, will you not become good at Data Interpretation and master it? Sincerity of preparation is what will take you across the line," says EXPERTS.
As per the EXPERTS , "The first mock that you need to take is in the beginning of June or end of May, to test where you stand. Then, take 3 tests in July, 4 tests in August, and from September to November, take 5 tests in each month." That's over 20+ mocks from June till CAT 2020.
