CAT 2007

The Common Admission Test (commonly referred to as the CAT) is the exam that makes you eligible for admissions to the super-premium MBA institutes in India, most notable the IIMs – the Indian Institutes of Management. CAT 2007 will quite likely be conducted in November 2007.

An exam such as the CAT pretends to test students in their English, Math, and Logic skills. However, underlying these areas is a strong “reasoning” undertone. So, CAT 2007 is not looking for mathematicians or linguists. Instead the focus is on analysis and communication.

Students who focus solely on Verbal and Quantitative concepts often miss out on the intent of CAT. With the proliferation of inferior quality teaching at the ever-mushrooming MBA entrance exam coaching centres, even teachers often focus on “getting the right answer.” In reality success in CAT 2007 will depend on “getting the right answer in the right way.”

If you are sincere about your success in CAT 2007, do not get blindly swayed by the brand building advertising that MBA entrance exams are showering on you. Talk to the students. Find out which class gives you personal attention. Even if it hardly ever advertises, it might be the best option for you.

I recommend Peak Seekers for CAT 2007 coaching. Though the institute is new, the faculty members there have many years (in most cases over 10 years) of experience in coaching for CAT. In fact, Peak Seekers is probably the only institute where all teachers are MBAs themselves. As a result, they know that the CAT is looking for. Visit http://www.peakseekers.in/ to get an idea of their professionalism. If you are appearing for CAT 2007, then you must join Peak Seekers.
